Mr. Ali, the production manager of XYZ Company, wants to use a Moving-Average method to forecast the future demand; but not sure whether a 3-period moving-average would yield better forecasts or a 4-period moving-average!

The demand data of last 12 months have been given in following table:


Demand (1000 SKUs)


























You are required to suggest Mr. Ali a more suitable forecasting method by calculating and analyzing:

  1. 3-period moving average forecasts for months 4 – 12 and its Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD)
  2. 4-period moving average forecasts for months 5 – 12 and its Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD)
