© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 1 Principles of Operations Management Forecasting Chapter S2

2
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 2 Learning Objectives n Define forecasting n Describe types of forecasts n Describe time series n Use time series forecasting methods n Use causal forecasting methods n Explain how to monitor & control forecasts

3
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 3 What Is Forecasting? n Process of predicting a future event n Underlying basis of all business decisions l Production l Inventory l Personnel l Facilities Sales will be $200 Million!

4
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 4 Types of Forecasts by Time Horizon n Short-range forecast l Up to 1 year; usually < 3 months l Job scheduling, worker assignments n Medium-range forecast l 3 months to 3 years l Sales & production planning, budgeting n Long-range forecast l 3+ years l New product planning, facility location

5
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 5 Types of Forecasts by Item Forecast n Economic forecasts l Address business cycle l e.g., inflation rate, money supply etc. n Technological forecasts l Predict technological change l Predict new product sales n Demand forecasts l Predict existing product sales

6
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 6 n Used when situation is ‘stable’ & historical data exist l Existing products l Current technology n Involves mathematical techniques n e.g., forecasting sales of color televisions Quantitative Methods Forecasting Approaches n Used when situation is vague & little data exist l New products l New technology n Involves intuition, experience n e.g., forecasting sales on Internet Qualitative Methods

7
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 7 Qualitative Forecasting Methods

8
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 8 Naive Approach n Assumes demand in next period is the same as demand in most recent period n e.g., If May sales were 48, then June sales will be 48 n Sometimes cost effective & efficient © 1995 Corel Corp.

9
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 9 Jury of Executive Opinion n Involves small group of high-level managers l Group estimates demand by working together n Combines managerial experience with statistical models n Relatively quick n ‘Group-think’ disadvantage © 1995 Corel Corp.

10
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 10 Delphi Method n Iterative group process n 3 types of people l Decision makers l Staff l Respondents n Reduces ‘group- think’ Decision Makers (Sales?) (Sales will be 50!) Respondents (Sales will be 45, 50, 55) Staff (What will sales be? survey)

11
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 11 Sales Force Composite n Each salesperson projects their sales n Combined at district & national levels n Sales rep’s know customers’ wants n Tends to be overly optimistic Sales © 1995 Corel Corp.

12
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 12 Consumer Market Survey n Ask customers about purchasing plans n What consumers say, & what they actually do are often different n Sometimes difficult to answer How many hours will you use the Internet next week? © 1995 Corel Corp.

14
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 14 What’s a Time Series? n Set of evenly spaced numerical data l Obtained by observing response variable at regular time periods n Forecast based only on past values l Assumes that factors influencing past, present, & future will continue n Example Year:19931994199519961997 Sales:78.763.589.793.292.1

15
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 15 Trend Component n Persistent, overall upward or downward pattern n Due to population, technology etc. n Several years duration Mo., Qtr., Yr. Response © 1984-1994 T/Maker Co.

16
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 16 Cyclical Component n Repeating up & down movements n Due to interactions of factors influencing economy n Usually 2-10 years duration Mo., Qtr., Yr. Response Cycle B

17
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 17 Seasonal Component n Regular pattern of up & down fluctuations n Due to weather, customs etc. n Occurs within 1 year Mo., Qtr. Response Summer © 1984-1994 T/Maker Co.

18
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 18 Random Component n Erratic, unsystematic, ‘residual’ fluctuations n Due to random variation or unforeseen events l Union strike l Tornado n Short duration & nonrepeating © 1984-1994 T/Maker Co.

19
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 19 Moving Average Method n MA is a series of arithmetic means n Used if little or no trend n Used often for smoothing l Provides overall impression of data over time n Equation MA n n Demand in Previous Periods Periods

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 25 Disadvantages of Moving Averages n Increasing n makes forecast less sensitive to changes n Do not forecast trend well n Require much historical data © 1984-1994 T/Maker Co.

26
© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S2 - 26 Exponential Smoothing Method n Form of weighted moving average l Weights decline exponentially l Most recent data weighted most Requires smoothing constant ( ) Requires smoothing constant ( ) l Ranges from 0 to 1 l Subjectively chosen n Involves little record keeping of past data
