A point forecast is one single number that usually is incomplete. This single number is most likely the value of future demand. However, a more useful forecast is a probability forecast because it provides more than just units, and demand of dealing with volatility.

    Forecasting allows you to determine your customers’ future purchasing behaviors using different types of methodologies and analysis of data. Companies who have been able to create reliable forecasting predictions have seen a reduction in inventory waste, an increase in production capabilities, and an overall cost savings throughout the supply chain.
