If goods have more utility to customers, they will either pay higher prices, purchase more often and with greater loyalty, or both. Always about customers - Logistics increases space utility by moving goods to where the customer needs them. - Logistics increases time utility by delivering goods when the customer needs them. - Logistics increases quantity and assortment utility by delivering exactly what the customer wants in the quantities the customer desires. Forecast Model Ft = (Bt × St × T × Ct × Pt) + I Where: Ft = Forecast quantity for period t; Bt = Base level demand for period t; St = Seasonality factor for period t; T = Trend component – index reflecting increase or decrease per period; Ct = Cyclical factor for period t; Pt = Promotional factor for period t; I = Irregular or random quantity. The Exponential Smoothing Model (Actual*smoothing constant) + (forecast*(1-smoothing constant)) So, exponential smoothing is like updating the latest forecast with the latest actual to get a new forecast. If you prefer, you can say exponential smoothing generates a new forecast based on a weighted average of the previous forecast and the latest actual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
