  • 1. Ch 3: Forecasting: Techniques and Routes IntroductionForecasting is the establishment of futureexpectations by the analysis of past data,or the formation of opinions.Forecasting is an essential element ofcapital budgeting.Capital budgeting requires the commitmentof significant funds today in the hope of longterm benefits. The role of forecasting is theestimation of these benefits. 1

  • 3. Quantitative ForecastingQuantitative: Regression with related variableData set of ‘Sales’ as related to both timeand the number of households.

  • 6. Quantitative Forecasting Quantitative: Sales regressed on households.Predicting with the regression output.Regression equation is:Sales(for year) = -348.218 + ( 3.316 x households). Assuming that a separate data set forecasts the number of households at 1795 for the year 2006, then:Sales(year 2006) = -348.218 + ( 3.316 x 1795) = 5,604 units. 6

  • 9. Quantitative Forecasting:Using Multiple RegressionMultiple regression equation is:Sales in year = -382643.91 +(193.33 x Year) + (0.1368 xHouseholds) sales for the year 2005 is:Forecast ofSales in year 2005 = -382643.91 + (193.33 x 2005) + (0.1368 x 1586) = 5200 Units(Note: the sales forecast relies upon a separateforecast of the number of households, given as 1 586,for 2005.) 9

  • 13. Quantitative Forecasting:Regression Line UseEquation for the regression line is:Sales in year = -395541.56 + (199.87 x Year)Forecast of sales for the year 2005 is:Sales in 2005 = -395541.56 + (199.87 x 2005) = 5198 Units(Note: the large negative Y axis intercept resultsfrom using the actual calendar years as the X axisscale.) 13

  • 16. Quantitative Forecasting:Notes on Excel Auto Plot.Excel will plot, and automatically forecast, adata series which has a functional relationship.For example, a regression trend line.The auto plot is driven through the ‘Chart’menu as ‘Add Trendline’. A particular forecastis specified via the dialog box.Future point data values cannot be readfrom the automated trendline.Non-functional relationships, such as amoving average, can be plotted, butcannot be automatically forecast. 16
  • 17. Forecasting Routes Top-Down where international and national events affect the future behaviour of local variables. 17
  • 18. Forecasting Routes Where local events affect the future behaviour of local variables. Bottom-Up 18
  • 19. Forecasting: Summary Sophisticated forecasting is essential for capital budgeting decisions Quantitative forecasting uses historical data to establish relationships and trends which can be projected into the future Qualitative forecasting uses experience and judgment to establish future behaviours Forecasts can be made by either the‘top down’ or ‘bottom up’ routes.
