It is not necessary to overlay the intermediate steps (disaggregation, linear projection) but they may be useful as you develop the model. d) Calculate the model's MAE (1 decimal place) e) Calculate and plot the drift signal in a separate graph. f) Analyze the quality of this model. What is the glaring defect? What is the main cause of this defect? g) Suggest an approach that would give better results in terms of prediction values, MAE and drift signal.
