A naïve forecast for September sales of a product would be equal to the forecast for August. True False 2. The forecasting time horizon and the forecasting techniques used tend to vary over the life cycle of a product. True False 3. Forecasts of individual products tend to be more accurate than forecasts of product families. True False 4 . Most forecasting techniques assume that there is some underlying stability in the system. True False 5. A time-series model uses a series of past data points to make the forecast. True False 6. Cycles and random variations are both components of time series. True False 7. A naive forecast for September sales of a product would be equal to the sales in August. True False 8. Mean Squared Error and Coefficient of Correlation are two measures of the overall error of a forecasting model. True False 9.

The larger the standard error of the estimate, the more accurate the forecasting model. True False 15. A trend projection equation with a slope of 0.78 means that there is a 0.78 unit rise in Y for every unit of time that passes. True False 16.
