Now that you’ve detected the time series components and obtained the stationary data, you’re ready to move on to time series modeling. In this liveProject, your challenge is to determine which model will perform best for your client’s data. To do this, you’ll apply the classical moving average (simple MA and exponential MA), autoregressive (AR), and autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models. Then you’ll compare their performance using a visualization and performance metric, root mean square error (RMSE).

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
