About the Course

Understanding basic statistics and probability concepts allows you to employ forecasting methods with greater efficiency and less mystery.

Course Description

This course will help you understand basic statistics and probability concepts. Knowledge of basic statistics and probability theory can help you to compare forecasting methods, recognize how much confidence you should have in a forecast, and communicate about forecasting with others.

Many replenishment systems set safety stock using probability theory. Understanding some of the basic concepts of probability will take the mystery out of how this process works. Furthermore, many of the estimates of fill rates and expected inventory levels use basic probability theory. After completing this course you will have the fundamental building blocks of these techniques, and they will help you understand future training modules.
