## Level 2 Sprint 2 - DEM03 Demand Forecast Module

Hi - I've been ploughing through sprint 2 and I have over looked most of the guidance for these formula - how close am I?

Baseline forecast is equal to DAT03 if it is current year data, otherwise Final forecast has to be offset:

IF 'SYS01 Time Settings By Week'.'1st Forecast Year?' THEN 'DAT03 Historic Volumes'.'Offset Volumes for 1st Forecast Year' ELSE IF 'SYS01 Time Settings By Week'.'2nd Forecast Year?' THEN OFFSET(Final Forecast, -52, 0) ELSE 0

In Initial Demand Forecast you just replace down with up and In Forecat cf use Initial Deman Forecast instead of Default.

Hi,

I think you should review the following:

'Baseline Forecast' can be equal to DAT03 if DAT03 meets the condition of being historic volume data.

In 'Initial Demand Forecast' purpose is Round up the 'Default Forecast' value to a whole number.

In 'Forecast cf' purpose is to compare the value of the 'Initial Demand Forecast' and the value of the Final Forecast line items, while you focused on 'Default Forecast'.

Rest looks okay to me!

Thank you for this.

I'm truly stuck on the formulas - how should I best express these?
