Genetic algorithms in seasonal demand forecasting


  • Chodak, Grzegorz
  • Kwaśnicki, Witold


The method of forecasting seasonal demand applying genetic algorithm is presented. Specific form of used demand function is shown in the first section of the article. Next the method of identification of the function parameters using genetic algorithms is discussed. In the final section an example of applying proposed method to forecast real demand process is shown.
