This course provides a hands-on tour of the forecasting functionality in Model Studio, a component of SAS Viya. The course begins by showing how to load the data into memory and visualize the time series data to be modeled. Attribute variables are introduced and implemented in the visualization. The course then covers the essentials of using pipelines for generating forecasts and selecting champion pipelines in a project. It also teaches you how to incorporate large-scale forecasting practices into the forecasting project. These include the creation of data hierarchies, forecast reconciliation, overrides, and best practices associated with forecast model selection.
