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.

Question No. 1
