Delphi Method

l. Choose the experts to participate representing a variety of knowledgeable people in different areas 2. Through a questionnaire (or E-mail), obtain forecasts (and any premises or qualifications for the forecasts) from all participants 3. Summarize the results and redistribute them to the participants along with appropriate new questions 4. Summarize again, refining forecasts and conditions, and again develop new questions 5. Repeat Step 4 as necessary and distribute the final results to all participants

15-11

Time series forecasting models try to predict the future based on past data You can pick models based on: 1. Time horizon to forecast 2. Data availability 3. Accuracy required 4. Size of forecasting budget 5. Availability of qualified personnel

15-12

Simple Moving Average Formula The simple moving average model assumes an average is a good estimator of future behavior The formula for the simple moving average is:

Ft = Forecast for the coming period N = Number of periods to be averaged A t-1 = Actual occurrence in the past period for up to n periods

15-13

Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Demand 650 678 720 785 859 920 850 758 892 920 789 844

Question: What are the 3week and 6-week moving average forecasts for demand? Assume you only have 3 weeks and 6 weeks of actual demand data for the respective forecasts

15-14

Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Demand 3-Week 6-Week 650 F4=(650+678+720)/3 678 =682.67 720 F7=(650+678+720 +785+859+920)/6 785 682.67 859 727.67 =768.67 920 788.00 850 854.67 768.67 758 876.33 802.00 892 842.67 815.33 920 833.33 844.00 789 856.67 866.50 844 867.00 854.83

Plotting the moving averages and comparing them shows how the lines smooth out to reveal the overall upward trend in this example

1000 900 De m a n d 800 700 600 500 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Week Demand 3-Week 6-Week

Note how the 3-Week is smoother than the Demand, and 6-Week is even smoother

15-16

Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Question: What is the 3 week moving average forecast for this data? Assume you only have 3 weeks and 5 weeks of actual demand data for the respective forecasts

While the moving average formula implies an equal weight being placed on each value that is being averaged, the weighted moving average permits an unequal weighting on prior time periods The formula for the moving average is: Ft = w1A t-1 + w 2 A t-2 + w 3A t-3 +...+w n A t-n

n

i=1

=1

15-19

Question: Given the weekly demand and weights, what is the forecast for the 4th period or Week 4?

Week 1 2 3 4 Demand 650 678 720

Note that the weights place more emphasis on the most recent data, that is time period t-1

15-20

Week 1 2 3 4

F4 = 0.5(720)+0.3(678)+0.2(650)=693.4

15-21

Question: Given the weekly demand information and weights, what is the weighted moving average forecast of the 5th period or week?

Week 1 2 3 4

15-22

Week 1 2 3 4 5

F5 = (0.1)(755)+(0.2)(680)+(0.7)(655)= 672

15-23

Where : Ft ! Forcast value for the coming t time period Ft - 1 ! Forecast value in 1 past time period At - 1 ! Actual occurance in the past t time period E ! Alpha smoothing constant

Premise: The most recent observations might have the highest predictive value Therefore, we should give more weight to the more recent time periods when forecasting

15-24

Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Demand 820 775 680 655 750 802 798 689 775

Question: Given the weekly demand data, what are the exponential smoothing forecasts for periods 2-10 using E=0.10 and E=0.60? Assume F1=D1

15-25

Answer: The respective alphas columns denote the forecast values. Note that you can only forecast one time period into the future.

Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Demand 820 775 680 655 750 802 798 689 775

15-26

Note how that the smaller alpha results in a smoother line in this example

15-27

The ideal MAD is zero which would mean there is no forecasting error The larger the MAD, the less the accurate the resulting model

Note that by itself, the MAD only lets us know the mean error in a set of forecasts

15-32

The Tracking Signal or TS is a measure that indicates whether the forecast average is keeping pace with any genuine upward or downward changes in demand. Depending on the number of MADs selected, the TS can be used like a quality control chart indicating when the model is generating too much error in its forecasts. The TS formula is:

The simple linear regression model seeks to fit a line through various data over time

a

0 1 2 3 4 5 x (Time)

Yt = a + bx

Yt is the regressed forecast value or dependent variable in the model, a is the intercept value of the the regression line, and b is similar to the slope of the regression line. However, since it is calculated with the variability of the data in mind, its formulation is not as straight forward as our usual notion of slope.

a = y - bx

Question: Given the data below, what is the simple linear regression model that can be used to predict sales in future weeks?

Week 1 2 3 4 5

15-36

Answer: First, using the linear regression formulas, we can compute a and b

Week Week*Week Sales Week*Sales 1 1 150 150 2 4 157 314 3 9 162 486 4 16 166 664 5 25 177 885 3 55 162.4 2499 Average Sum Average Sum

Yt = 143.5 + 6.3x

Now if we plot the regression generated forecasts against the actual sales we obtain the following chart: 180 175 170 165 160 155 150 145 140 135 1 2 3 Perio d 4 5

Collaborative Planning, Forecasting, and Replenishment (CPFR) a Webbased tool used to coordinate demand forecasting, production and purchase planning, and inventory replenishment between supply chain trading partners. Used to integrate the multi-tier or nTier supply chain, including manufacturers, distributors and retailers. CPFRs objective is to exchange selected internal information to provide for a reliable, longer term future views of demand in the supply chain. CPFR uses a cyclic and iterative approach to derive consensus forecasts.
