Many books on forecasting and time series analysis have been published recently. Somc of them are introductory and just describe the various methods heuristically. Certain others are very theoretical and focus on only a few selected topics. This book is about the statistical methods and models that can be used to produce short-term forecasts. Each case focuses on a single issue related to a specific area of financial management, including: • Cost behavior and profit analysis • Cost allocation • Pricing, planning, and budgeting • Capital acquisition and allocation • Financial condition analysis and forecasting • Current asset management • Business valuation.

5. Test-market analysis forecasting. What it is: The test-market analysis method is great if you’re rolling out a new product or service and want to get an idea of what your sales might look like. As the name implies, this method involves doing a limited launch of your product or service and then analyzing the response. Qualitative forecasting techniques are used for identifying any inter-organizational issue that might disrupt the regular business process (Montgomery, et al., ). Market research and market analysis are also considered as an important forecasting technique that is used to identify the customers’ demand and trend to deliver the product in.

Full book available The method of forecast value added (FVA) analysis (discussed in several articles in Chapter 4) can be used to identify and eliminate forecasting process activities that do not improve the forecast (or may even be making it worse).

And in many situations, large-scale automated. salient features. In this book, we have described three important classes of time series models, viz. the stochastic, neural networks and SVMbased models, together with their inherent forecasting strengths and weaknesses. We have also discussed about the basic issues related to time series modeling, such as stationarity, parsimony, overfitting Cited by:   Forecasting and Predictive Analytics with Forecast X (TM), 7th Edition by Barry Keating and J.

Tax analysis and forecasting of revenues are of critical importance to governments in ensuring stability in tax and expenditure policies. To augment timely and effective analysis of the revenue aspects of the fiscal policy, governments have increasingly turned toward in-house tax policy units rather than relying on tax experts from outside.
