PREDICTION IN LOGISTICS USING FUNCTIONS WITH FLEXIBLE STRUCTURE

A mathematical approach relying on the functions of flexible structure (FFS) is proposed for forecasting logistics indices based on the assumption of statistical relationships between two indices. Real or complex conjugate pairs are used to determine the FFS, which then allows the optimal value to be found. In order to determine the accuracy and reliability of a forecasts, direct, indirect, consequential and inverse verification methods are offered. Finally, a combined scheme which compensates the disadvantages of one group of methods by using the advantages of other groups is proposed for obtaining more accurate and reliable forecasts in logistics.
