Reflective Statement: Apply existing knowledge This proficiency demonstrates my ability to apply existing knowledge of forecasting to predict the demand for copper. This is done employing the use of an ARIMA model. A thorough description of why this method may be acceptable for a short run forecast is provided which gives this paper a distinct approach at forecasting demand as opposed to using the two stage least squares process. This artifact could be improved upon by providing a two stage least squares analysis in addition to the ARIMA model. This would allow the reader to make the appropriate judgment about the adequacy of ARIMA models to provide a short term forecast for demand.
