Demand Forecasting for
Microsoft Dynamics AX/Dynamics 365 from Farsight Solutions is a fully
integrated Dynamics module that calculates forecasts of future demand for items
based on either sales order or sales invoice demand, and optionally production
and projects demand, providing a powerful tool that enables companies to
intelligently plan ahead.
Users can compare forecasts against history and manually adjust figures easily
& conveniently, with graphical presentation of information to clearly
display seasonal and other trends.
Demand Forecasting enables companies to generate demand forecasts using
advanced industry-standard forecasting algorithms without the need to interface
to external products. The inclusion of the Forecast Pro forecasting engine from
Business Forecast Systems, Inc., Belmont, Massachusetts, provides customers
with the power of an industry-leading forecasting solution and the ease of use
of the Dynamics user interface.

Adjustments to forecasts to
allow for sales promotions and other events
Ability to manually adjust
demand history to remove abnormal demand (outliers)
Documentation of reasons for
