The OR Society - Webinars

Webinar series

The OR Society is delighted to bring you a series of webinars offering an ongoing discussion for a living network interested in problem structuring methods. Every first Wednesday of the month, we will have a range of expert speakers sharing their case studies and collating overviews of actual successes and failures. The feedback will help to create an accessible storybook for analysts to tap into.

By developing libraries of methods and experience, a broad knowledge of problem archetypes and taxonomies will emerge from the perspectives of academics, practitioners and other stakeholders.

Webinar schedule

Getting the Best Out of Forecasting Software
Date: Tuesday 4 December 2018 | 3pm
Join us for the 'Getting the Best Out of Forecasting Software' webinar, presented by Professor Nikos Kourentzes and Professor Robert Fildes, Centre for Marketing Analytics and Forecasting, Lancaster University Management School.

In most organisations, forecasts are produced through software, whether it is the ubiquitous Excel, an advanced econometrics package or an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

This webinar will examine: 

  • The selection process for software acquisition
  • Appraising the software for efficiency
  • Testing and making improvements
  • Effective forecasting methods
