Forecast horizaon

Hi All,

I have given the forecast horizon till 31.12.2010 but when I run the univariate forecast I cansee the forecasted data only till P 02.2011 i.e. second period.

Why so ?

Thanks a lot

Prabhat

    Hi Prabhat,

    Check whether historical data is available and transferred into the

    cubes during planning. Check any inconsistencies of timeseries

    data.

    Hi

    Please check the Forecasting profile which you are using for execute the forecasting.

    We also require to maintain the periods in backword for which system should look sales history and also forward buckets for which it should do forecasting.

    It might be if we have mismatch there.

      Hi Amol,

      I have given the date in from and to field in forecast profile.

      for historical data - it is 6 months data

      for forecasting - it is till 31.12.2011 but I get forecast only till P 02.2011.

      I have not given any period or offset in the forecast profile.

      FYI - My planning is happening based on Periods ,I am using fiscal variant.

      Rgds,

    Hi Prabhat,

    The only other expalnation I can think of, after all the previous comments, is to check whether or not your forecast model allows for full period forecasting. Some models require a certain number of periods to forecast into the future. This is particularly true if your data/model has seasonality and trend modeling.

    Good luck,

    Rodrigo
