forecasting 9

Read through the Case Study entitled “M&L Manufacturing” in Chapter 3 of your textbook. Examine the historical trend this company has experienced for the two products discussed.

Prepare weekly forecasts for the next four weeks for both products, describe the forecasting method you chose and explain why that forecasting method is best suited to the scenario. Explain why you did, or did not, choose the same forecasting method for each product. What are the benefits of using a formalized approach to forecasting these products?

Your forecasts can be developed within a Word document or Excel spreadsheet.

Be sure to use at least two current, scholarly references beyond any required course readings. Current sources are those published within the most recent five-year period, and scholarly sources are those from peer-reviewed journals.

Make certain for each listed reference that you have at least one supporting citation in the body of your content. Your reference page is always the last page of the submission where all individual references get listed.
