    Hi Raj,

    How do you want to run the models? That answers all your questions.

    Usually depending on business requirement, you execute these models in a sequence for part of the data or all.

    you can include these 3 models in the forecast master profile..however you can only run only one model at a time for a set of data. If you want to have all the three models' results at a time, then you need to create 3 different profiles with three different forecast key figures

    You can choose strategy 56 Auto model ( Procedure 1 or Procedure 2 ) and give alpha,beta and gamma values to consider all three models.System will consider all three but finally choose the one

    Hi ,

    You can select model :56 Model selection procedure 2 in your master forecasting profile .

    In this model program will analyse your historical data and pick model accordingly.

    some other combination of 2 exist like 40:

    Forecast with seasonal trend models (strategy 41).

    Please check in tcode;/SAPAPO/MC96B.

    I assume you are using univariate forecast model selection.You can select forecasting strategy as 56 (Forecast with Automatic Model Selection).By selecting this system automatically select correct forecast stretagy & calulate according to that.

    Let me know this answer your question & assign forum points.

    Thanks .....Sanjay Karkun
