They are implementing a new software system and want to know what is the best forecasting model to program into the system. They currently use one of two forecasting models, simple moving average or exponential smoothing. Given three sets of data elements, the students must develop and support their recommendation. In addition, the company is considering consolidating the distribution system into one. The team must determine whether or not that is a good idea and support their conclusions.
