Assignment # 01

production/operations management (mgt613)

Marks: 10

Topic:  Forecasting

Objective: The objective of this assignment is to numerically perform the concept of different types of forecasting.


There are certain businesses whose performances/sales get affected by the seasonal conditions of their regions. Fast moving consumer goods are one of those businesses, whose product demand is dependent and very much affected by the weather conditions. Huge demand differences exist in summer and winters. Eggs and poultry business is one of those, in winters its demand is high and is low in summer.

Fine Eggs and Poultry Ltd. (private) is a firm located at Rawalpindi. It holds 60% of Rawalpindi market share in this business. Its customers include mega-marts, general stores, bakeries and burger shops. As the winter is approaching, so its management has to prepare forecasting schedule and table to forecast demand of eggs. Based upon the previous historical records, the management extracted following table:

Week (s)

Demand units (000)


















From the above given information you are required to calculate:

•           3-week moving average forecast demand in week 4, 6 and 8.

•           Weighted moving average forecast demand in week 5 with the same and equal weights of all previous weeks.

•           Exponential smoothing forecast demand for all weeks using 0.9 as smoothing constant. However the management predicted 650,000 demand in first week


  1. The answer should be in mathematical form only and doesn’t need any theory. But it should also include formulas.

F1= 650+0.9(650-650) = 650
F2= 650+0.9(800-650) = 785
F3= 785+0.9(850-785) = 843.5
F4= 843.5+0.9(870-843.5) = 867.35
F5= 867.35+0.9(900-867.35) = 896.735
F6= 896.735+0.9(920-896.735) = 917.67
F7= 917.67+0.9(960-917.67) = 955.77
F8= 955.77 +0.9(980-955.77) = 977.57
