MGT613 G D B Solution required
Learning Objective: The objective of this discussion is to make students able to read and search about the various sources of forecast errors.
Safdar Manufacturing Ltd. deals with the production of sports related products. The Company has been in financial troubles for the last three years. The forecast errors have been attributed as one of the main causes of its financial distress. The accuracy of the demand forecast is essential in order to assure smooth production of the products. One outcome of inaccurate demand forecast is surplus inventory in case when it is not actually required, which will end up in absorbing more costs for the company. The other adverse outcome is the shortage of inventory when it is really required, which will lead towards loss of sales for the company. All this situation has been the source of financial problems for the company. For a company to be efficient in production, it is necessary to monitor its forecast errors to ensure that the forecast is performing adequately.
