About the webinar

SAS Visual Forecasting can provide trustworthy forecasts for hundreds or thousands of time series automatically.

However, individual forecasts can be further improved with a bit of tweaking.

The Interactive Modeling node enables forecasters to easily adjust forecast parameters allowing users to quickly create, evaluate and compare different forecasts efficiently.

This webinar will show you how to improve your forecasting results by adjusting model parameters for individual forecasts in the easy-to-use user interface of SAS Visual Forecasting.

We will provide tips for exploring forecasting diagnostic plots, as well as tricks for selecting model parameters for an ARIMA model.

You will learn how to use the Interactive Modeling node in SAS Visual Forecasting to:

  • Tweak individual forecasts to improve accuracy.
  • Build a model from scratch.
  • Manually select a champion model.
