Abstract

Extrapolative forecasting models have been available for many years and as most organizations have the need to regularly develop forecasts one might anticipate the widespread use of these models. The evidence in Australia indicates that computer based forecasting systems are not being widely used and in fact a number of established systems have been discarded, with the issue of forecast accuracy often being mentioned as a problem area. Two experiments are carried out to examine this issue by comparing judgemental and quantitative forecasts. Other problem areas mentioned as contributing to the abandonment of forecasting systems include the difficulty of manually reviewing the computer forecasts and the effort required to carefully massage the forecast database to remove extraordinary events.
