The audit allows you to identify weak areas of your forecasting system. It asks you to first provide a brief description of the forecasting problem. You might have more than one type of forecasting problem: for example, your organization may need to forecast for inventory control, to forecast your competitor's actions, or to forecast the effects of a change in marketing variables such as price or advertising. You can conduct an audit for each type of problem. The system provides for security, although we provide no guarantee on security.
See the Introduction to the Forecasting Audit.
An alternative to using the Forecasting Audit Software, if you have a copy of Principles of Forecasting handy or are familiar with its content, is to use the Principles Checklist.
Forecasters, managers, and users of forecasts should be aware of the Legal Aspects of forecasting.
