Can the program retain significant amounts of actual historical and forecasted data?
This capability keeps prior business experiences readily available to an organization, either for review or for transfer of prior trend patterns to new Items. TimeTrends can retain up to 1,040 periods of history (actuals), and up to 520 periods of forecast (future) data. In a weekly database, this corresponds to 20 years of history and 10 years of forecast. Specialized tools such as Copy Demand Profile are included to facilitate the creation of new items based on the behaviour of existing items that are known to exhibit similar trend activity.
