The presentation provides an overview of how data, forecasts and optimization are “stacked” on top of each other, building a framework where we can optimize future operations. On the highest level we have furthermore a customer feedback loop.


  • Reports alone will not yield competitive advantage.
  • Building layers and modules will provide better scalability, faster development, and easier maintainability.
  • Each part needs feedback, but the overall customer feedback is the most important one.
