next previous Managing Forecast Overrides

To make adjustments to a forecast, simply select Overrides from the tabs menu. The following screen will appear:

PEER Planner’s Override function allows you to adjust a forecast manually or graphically. With the ability to override elements of a statistical forecast, you are able to take into account subjective management opinions or additional information that is not reflected in the baseline forecast.

Constraining Forecast Overrides Since overrides can be made at any level in the product and/or customer summaries, you may need to constrain the override not to be applied to all the customer codes making up the summary.

Eyeballing a Manual Adjustment As an alternative to manually entering revised estimate numbers into the forecast grid, you can "eyeball" your adjustments and make your changes graphically.

A graph of the statistical forecast will be displayed, along with a list of the numerical values for each period. To override the forecast, click the value on the graph that represents your modified estimate for a particular period. The graph for jump to that value, and the numerical values on the side panel will automatically adjust.
