  2. How mature is your demand forecasting process?

    Statistical forecasting models are becoming increasingly sophisticated and software is readily available to support the forecasting process, yet surveys show that in only 25% of cases, demand forecasts are based exclusively on statistical models; 75% of the time they are the result of human judgement alone (25%), a statistical model adjusted by the forecaster(s) (33%) or an average of statistical and judgemental forecasts (17%). Human judgement therefore plays an important role. But how does it impact on forecasting accuracy? To date, little empirical research has been done in this area. The Vlerick Forecasting Research Centre fills this gap.
