Forecasting: methods and applications
Forecasting Methods for Managers by S. Makridakis; S. Wheelwright Review by: J. JSTOR is a not-for-profit service that helps scholars, researchers, and students discover, use, and build upon a wide range of content in a trusted digital archive. We use information technology and tools to increase productivity and facilitate new forms of scholarship. One would not agree with all his points: two that the reviewer objected to were "an unimplemented solution is a poor solution" and the statement " 'The Limits of Growth' did not predict"!
The author is rather sententious, very much overworks the word "wise" and has also not been well served by his publisher. A price of? However, despite these drawbacks, it is worth buying if only to check periodically one's own group's behaviour. The forecasting techniques available have increased both in number and com- plexity, so now is the time for a book to help both OR workers and managers to choose the most appropriate technique. It is principally aimed at managers, therefore you would expect a simple approach to the techniques.
They introduce forecasting gently in the first two chapters by discussing the role of forecasting in a firm, stressing, quite rightly, that accuracy is not the sole criterion. They do not mention, however, that a graph can provide the manager with useful information. They then proceed to develop all the techniques, but in most cases they cannot describe them sufficiently. The smoothing techniques, regression techniques and adaptive filtering, they prefer the latter , however, are well described via worked examples.
They give a basic introduction to Box-Jenkins, but for most of the techniques the "manager" must look up the references provided. Since the book is intended for the U. These are: 1 time horizon, 2 pattern of data e. The applicability is divided into a the time required to make a forecast and b the easiness to understand and interpret the results.
The forecasting techniques are listed across the top. For example, if the manager has a short-term forecast to prepare he would look up in the table and find that the quickest method to prepare a forecast is simple exponential smoothing. Under exponential smoothing he will find a worked example explaining how to use this technique or references to explore further. However, only 70 per cent of the forecasting techniques in the table actually appear in the index under the same name.
This will provide some confusion! In comparison with another table it is much more detailed than that produced by Chambers et al. One aspect seemed curious. If the manager knew he had an immediate term, non-correlated, horizontal pattern of data, the book advises the use of Inventory Control or Mathematical Programming. Mathematical Programming is not mentioned in the index and the one page headed "Inventory Control Theory" exhorts the reader to look elsewhere. It also contains the sentence, "Inventory Control shifts the burden It could be phrased better.
I find the book falls between two stools. It is too advanced for general management and yet not advanced enough for OR. I would advise people beginning forecasting to read the book because it is readable and enjoyable and discusses the practical aspects and uses of forecasting, rather than the individual techniques.

Hyndman Published Computer Science. In preparing the manuscript for the third edition of Forecasting: methods and applications, one of our primary goals has been to make the book as complete and thorough as possible in order that it might best meet its intended objectives.
In virtually every decision they make, executives today consider some kind of forecast. Sound predictions of demands and trends are no longer luxury items, but a necessity, if managers are to cope with seasonality, sudden changes in demand levels, price-cutting maneuvers of the competition, strikes, and large swings of the economy. Forecasting can help them […]. Forecasting can help them deal with these troubles; but it can help them more, the more they know about the general principles of forecasting, what it can and cannot do for them currently, and which techniques are suited to their needs of the moment. Here the authors try to explain the potential of forecasting to managers, focusing special attention on sales forecasting for products of Corning Glass Works as these have matured through the product life cycle.

Exchange Rate Forecasting: Techniques and Applications
Forecasting, as a tool, provides marketing managers with data and information regarding projected sales volume, sales costs, market shares, magnitude of target markets, and other areas of marketing planning and control. The role of forecasting in marketing is emphasised, a few popular forecasting techniques which can be used by small firms are described, the major criteria which are considered when applying forecasting to marketing are discussed, and some implications which may concern the entrepreneur are explored.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Forecasting is a crucial function for companies in the fashion industry, but for many real-life forecasting applications in the, the data patterns are notorious for being highly volatile and it is very difficult, if not impossible, to analytically learn about the underlying patterns. As a result, many traditional methods such as pure statistical models will fail to make a sound prediction.
Forecasting Applications in Marketing and Small Business
A sales forecast is an estimation of sales volume that a company can expect to attain within the plan period. A sales forecast is not just a sales predicting. It is the act of matching opportunities with the marketing efforts. Thus sales forecasting shows the probable volume of sales. The Delphi Method 3. Sales Force Composite Method 4. Historical Analogy Method 6.
Forecasting is the process of making predictions based on past and present data and most commonly by analysis of trends. A commonplace example might be estimation of some variable of interest at some specified future date. Prediction is a similar, but more general term. Both might refer to formal statistical methods employing time series , cross-sectional or longitudinal data, or alternatively to less formal judgmental methods.
