FileMaker DevCon 2013 - Join Greg Lane on Thursday, 8/15 at 3:4tpm for Advanced Charting and Techniques with ExecuteSQL Session.
Reporting on last year's sales is a piece of cake. Reporting NEXT year's sales is a bit trickier. This session will explore statistical forecasting models that you can implement in FileMaker Pro to help your users analyze data, reduce uncertainty, and plan for the future. We'll examine a variety of methods to calculate trend lines, moving averages, weighted averages, seasonal forecasts, and other quantitative models that can be useful for forecasting sales, attendance, inventory demand, manufacturing, or anything else that is likely to follow patterns or trends.
