Our main purpose here discussion not just Solution
We are here with you hands in hands to facilitate your learning and do not appreciate the idea of copying or replicating solutions.
1. Begin with reasonable expectations. Forecast accuracy is limited by the nature of
the behavior we are trying to forecast – its forecastability. Perfect forecasting is not
possible, so don’t pursue that ideal.
2. Discover the appropriate way to benchmark the accuracy level you should be
attaining. Industry benchmarking can be fruitless; benchmarking against naïve
forecasts may be the better choice.
3. Identify waste and inefficiency in the forecasting process. FVA analysis shows you
which process steps improve forecast accuracy and which do not.
4. Use FVA analysis to compare the results of a naïve forecast against a statistically
generated forecast, the forecast with analyst override, and the forecast that is
ultimately approved by senior management.
5. If good software can give you reasonably good forecasts with little or no
management intervention, trust in the software and invest that management time
in other areas that can bring more value to the company
ust an idea for understanding according to my view point.
