Quantitative analysis techniques are those that study behavior by using mathematical modeling, measurement and research. This relates to giving a numerical value to variables. Quantitative analysts try to replicate reality through mathematics. Quantitative analysis involves measurements. Initially, quantitative analysts were involved only in investment management, risk management, and derivatives, now quantitative analysis is used in a wide variety of applications.
The business of interest is the company in which I work. The firm makes molded plastic toys. The firm faces problems when the trends and tastes related to toys change and the type of toys made by the firm do match the market demand. Large inventories of toys have to be written off. Quantitative analysis can help the company in several ways.
