Predict Demand For A More Accurate Forecast
What is Demand Planning?
Multi-level Forecasting Models
To satisfy all mainstream business forecasting requirements, our Demand Planning module can automatically select forecasting models from the following five classes or include a user-defined forecasting model:
Moving Average Models
For very short or extremely volatile data, Forecast Pro includes moving average models.
For stable data sets, Forecast Pro supports a multiplicative seasonal Box-Jenkins model. The model can be built automatically or interactively, using a full range of screen-oriented diagnostics.
Low Volume Models
Croston’s Intermittent Demand model and discrete data models are provided to accommodate low volume and “sparse” data (i.e. where the demand is often zero).
Curve Fitting Models
Provides a quick and easy way to identify the general form of the curve (i.e. straight line, quadratic, exponential, and s-curve).
12 different Holt-Winters Exponential Smoothing Models accommodate various data characteristics, ideal when there are no leading indicators or if there is short or volatile data for Box-Jenkins.
You can select the model and set the parameters yourself or let Forecast Pro do it automatically.
