Answer: MAD= n Source: Render, Jay Heizer and Barry. Operations Management, 10th Edition. Pearson p.113 Mean Absolute Devation (MAD) is a measure of the overall forecast error for a model. This value is computed by taking the sum of the absolute values of the individual forecast errors (deviations) and dividing by the number of periods of data (n): Σ|Actual − Forecast|...

What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
