Sales Forecast

Robert has a problem – he doesn’t understand the volatility in his stores’ sales. He knows that sales vary between different times of day, on different days of the week, and that two categories may behave very differently. But even comparing his store’s BTO Sandwich sales on several consecutive Fridays at lunchtime, there are significant differences. Robert needs a way to understand what else is going on here, and what, if anything, he can do about it.
