The aims of this book are to explain the fundamental theoretical and practical bases of the principal methods used to analyse and forecast demand and, secondly, to examine the state of the art in the practical application of these techniques. The main emphasis is given to analytical techniques especially those with an economic basis. The concept of demand is treated in outline in chapter 1 and A general description of the main forecasting techniques is provided in chapter 2. Several of the principal methods are selected for more detailed examination in subsequent chapters. Chapter 3 deals with the theoretical and statistical background of some of the more rigorous techniques. Chapters 4 and 5 are concerned with recent applications of these approaches and chapter 6 provides A description of delphi models and their use in research. A comprehensive annotated bibliography of recent work is included.
