RDF: Winters Responsive Method is Generating Unexpectedly High Forecast (Doc ID 2158520.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting - Version 14.0.2.2 to 15.0.1 [Release 14.0 to 15.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An unusually high forecast is noticed when the default selected Winters mode is 'Winters Responsive' and the system forecasting method selected is 'Multiplicative Seasonal'. When the Winters mode is changed to 'Oracle Winters', the system selects again a forecasting method as the Multiplicative Seasonal, but the forecast seems normal.

There seems to be an issue with the 'Winters Responsive' forecasting method.
