- For context, when a retailer buys in a clothing item they have to stock it in various sizes. The ratio of stock for each size is referred to as the "size ratio" of the product. E.g. S=0.2, M=0.5, L=0.3
- I am looking to build a model that predicts the size curve ratio of sales at the end of the season based on data available at the start of the season e.g. historic sales data, product attributes.
- I am finding it a challenge modelling this scenario because I am used to predicting a single variable, but in this case we are predicting multiple variables which need to add up to 1.
Questions: What is the standard approach to modelling this class of problem? What is the best approach to modelling this?
