For this part of the problem I need to use the POM software:
1. Forecasting.
2. I  should select  Module->Forecasting->File->New->Least Squares and multiple regression
3. Use the module to solve the Case Study  (Southwestern University). this case study, I  am are required to build a forecasting model. Assume a linear regression forecasting model and build a model for each of the five games (five models in total) by using the forecasting module of the POM software.
4. Answer the three discussion questions for the case study except the part requiring me to justify the forecasting technique, as linear regression would be used.
Discussion Questions
1.  Develop a forecasting model, justifying its selection over other
techniques, and project attendance through 2007.
2.  What revenues are to be expected in 2006 and 2007
3.  Discuss the school's options.

Forecasting Problem
POM Software:
For this part of the problem I need to use the POM software:
Forecasting.
I should select Module->Forecasting->File->New->Least Squares and
multiple regression
Use the module to solve the Case Study (Southwestern University). this
case study, I am are required to build a forecasting model. Assume a
linear regression forecasting model and build a model for each of the
five games (five models in total) by using the forecasting module of the
POM software.
Answer the three discussion questions for the case study except the part
requiring me to justify the forecasting technique, as linear regression
would be used.
Discussion Questions
1. Develop a forecasting model, justifying its selection over other
techniques, and project attendance through 2007.
2. What revenues are to be expected in 2006 and 2007
3. Discuss the school's options.
Case Study (Southwestern University)
Southwestern University (SWU), a large state college in Stephenville,
Texas, enrolls close to 20,000 students. The school is a dominant force
in the small city, with more students during fall and spring than
permanent residents. Always a football powerhouse, SWU is usually in the
top 20 in College football rankings. Since the legendary Bo Pitterno was
hired as its head coach in 1999 (in hopes of reaching the elusive number
1 ranking),attendance at the five Saturday home games each year
increased. Prior to Pitterno's arrival, attendance generally averaged
25,000 to 29,000 per game. Season ticket sales bumped up by 10,000
Just with the announcement of the new coach's arrival. Stephenville and
SWU were ready to move to the big time!
The immediate issue facing SWU, however, was not NCAA ranking. It was
capacity. The existing SWU stadium, built in 1953, has seating for
54,000 fans. The following table indicates attendance at each game for
the past 6 years.
One of Pitterno's demands upon joining SWU had been a stadium expansion,
or possibly even a new stadium. With attendance increasing, SWU
as an additional feature of any expansion.
SWU's president, Dr. Joel Wisner, decided it was time for his
vice president of development to forecast when the existing stadium
would "max out." The expansion was, in his mind, a given. But Wisner
needed to know how long he could wait. He also sought a
revenue projection, assuming an average ticket price of \$20 in 2006
and a 5% increase each year in future prices.

(a) Refer to Homecoming games.
(b) During the 4th week of each season, Stephenville hosted a hugely
popular southwestern crafts festival. This event brought tens of
thousands of tourists to the town, especially on weekends, and had an
obvious negative impact on
game attendance.
