I'm an operations data analyst. I was wondering if I can get recommendations on books/videos on statistical models specific to optimizing business operations through analytics and statistical modeling.
An example of a problem I am trying to solve is trying to understand if the variance in case volume divided by customer population and intersected over time are statistically significant. E.g. if I were to compare the previous week's performance with this week's performance. The objective here is to understand if the delta between the two weeks is significant. I am not necessarily trying to take into account all of the previous weeks and using linear regression to find future values.
