Inventory and Supply Cost Analysis

By November 14, 2023

Goal: To perform a detailed analysis of the company’s current and potential vendor prices for equipment, medications, and other procedural supplies and develop a machine learning model to update price changes and highlight the most economical options automatically.

Description: The intern will be expected to collect and maintain pricing data of our current supply vendors while also developing a web crawler program to obtain that information for multiple local vendors. The collected data will then be used to train a machine learning model to reflect trends in price changes, predict inventory levels, and offer economical options for vendor decisions.


  • An organized listing of current and potential vendors; ideally, 5-10 providers for each medical/equipment/supply item

  • Develop a Python web crawler to automatically grab the product info, including price and review, for additional providers off the internet and write the data in our local database.

  • Develop a machine learning model to automatically update with the newest price change and offer suggestions on the most economical choice, optimum inventory required, and predict the future cost trend of each item.
