Integrating Freight Flow Predictions for Shift Planning into an Enterprise-Ready Setup

Speaker: Dr. Max Pillong, Lufthansa Industry Solutions

Accurate freight flow predictions allow better shift planning and resource allocation. This presentation describes how RapidMiner can be used to integrate predictive analytics into an existing IT architecture built on diverse platforms and including third-party providers. The generated forecasts allow for precise freight flow predictions based on location, day of the week, and even down to a shift level, enabling Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ customers to precisely schedule shifts and their required manpower. This presentation gives an overview of the software architecture, the integration of RapidMiner into the productive environment with Hadoop, the concept of the predictive model built, as well as an excursion into test automation with RapidMiner.
