Overview
Forecasting Methods
• Exponential Smoothing
– Simple
– Trend (Holt’s Method)
– Seasonality (Winters’ Method)
• Regression
– Trend
– Seasonality
– Lagged Variables
Applied Regression -- Prof. Juran

Forecasting
1. Analysis of Historical Data
• Time Series (Extrapolation)
• Regression (Causal)
2. Projecting Historical Patterns into the Future
3. Measurement of Forecast Quality
Applied Regression -- Prof. Juran
3
Measuring Forecasting Errors
• Mean Absolute Error
• Mean Absolute Percent Error
• Root Mean Squared Error
• R-square

Trend Analysis
• Part of the variation in Y is believed to
be “explained” by the passage of time
• Several convenient models available in
an Excel chart

You can “add chart element –
trendline”, and choose to
superimpose a trend line on the

After optimizing, we see that alpha is 0.350 (instead of 0.10). This
makes an improvement in RMSE, from 4691 to 3653.

Holt’s model with optimized smoothing constants. This model is slightly
better than the simple model (RMSE drops from 3653 to 3568).

Which Method is Better?
The most reasonable statistic for comparison is probably RMSE
for smoothing models vs. standard error for regression models,

Time series characterized by relatively consistent trends
and seasonality favor the regression model.
If the trend and seasonality are not stable over time, then
Winters’ method does a better job of responding to their
changing patterns.

Lagged Variables
• Only applicable in a causal model
• Effects of independent variables might
not be felt immediately
• Used for advertising’s effect on sales
