• Machine learning used to predict individual sales order milestones, from the time a customer initiates a sales order, manufacturing begins and ends, and the sales order is sent to the hub within inbound logistics.
• Operationalized multivariate time-series  models and designing neural network architectures for forecasting high-value commodities within supply chain procurement.
• Statistical analysis to identify highly variable behavior contributing to early / late product delivery within order and supply chain analytics.
