A Causal Factor is a time-varying quantity (such as a series) that affects demand. Oracle Demantra provides the following general kinds of causal factors:
A local causal factor depends on the time, location, and item being sold. For
example, it can be a specific discount in a specific store.
A global causal factor depends only on the time, for example, a holiday. See global
Promotional causal factors, which apply to different items, locations, and promotions. These causal factors are available only for Promotion Effectiveness.
