You need high-quality planning backed with reliable statistical forecasting to understand and act decisively in this intricate and erratic market.

 

What is statistical forecasting?

A statistical baseline forecast is based on historical sales data and often employs trend models. These models allow companies to focus on the enrichment of elements that really add value. Each demand forecasting unit in your portfolio is segmented and a statistical model is created to suit all mature products. The segmentation of products allows you to focus on and enrich the forecast of important products. It lets statistics do the work for you, while enhancing the forecast efficiency. These advanced models boost forecasting accuracy.

Added Value Forecasting

It is only sensible to want to quantify the added value of an improved forecast. One forecast can be compared to another to measure improvements in accuracy. Statistical forecasts can be treated likewise, and they can be measured against the enriched forecast generated by your organisation. Other options include comparing the statistical forecast with the naive forecast, so that the observation of next month will be equal to this month’s.
