This is Kiran, an analytics professional working out of Bangalore. I'm keen on taking up this assignment. I have had similar project experience in the PC manufacturing industry where I did the price-sensitivity of demand analysis for each line of product (sub series within Thinkpad and Ideapad brands, as I work for Lenovo group). The project involved identifying the model classes where demand is high, computing PED, and identifying the sweet spots / price bands for optimal revenue and margin using demand curves. It was found that some products exihibit point elasticity (where elasticity changes at each point on curve), and some exhibit constant elasticity (of course in a particular price range). The key for calculating the correct elasticity was the right transformation of data. For e.g., in log-log transformation the elasticity is the coefficient of x. The project also accounted for seasonality and promotion offers on products.

I think I'm a good fit for this assignmnet. If you also think the same, please contact me on [email protected]
