Tools to Forecast Technology Innovations staff of a business. As Ralph Lenz, U.S. Air Force technology forecasting pioneer once said, “Technology forecasting may be defined as the prediction of the invention, characteristics, dimensions, or performance of a machine serving some useful purpose.” There needs to be a systematic process. Forecasting demand and revenues for new variants of existing products is difficult enough. But forecasting for radically innovative products in emerging new categories is an entirely different ball game. There are no past trends to reassuringly extrapolate into the future, just a ton of uncertainty about whether the latent demand that the marketing folk suggested to .
Effective demand planning doesn’t just happen, it requires work. To move forward, companies have to admit the mistakes of the past, implement continuous improvement programs to drive discipline, and carefully re-implement demand planning technologies to sense and shape demand. Here’s a guide to making sound demand planning a reality. Forecasting in any context requires understanding forces of change that will affect the status quo or current norms, and spotting future needs for talent planning requires a Author: Samantha Howland.
Second, there is extensive research literature on the differences in innovation between a high-tech industry and a low-tech industry (Lynn et al., ). It . Long term demand forecasting models are helpful when it comes to making larger capital planning decisions. These models provide information for making major strategic decisions and demand pattern data from long term data sets can help a company forecast for end of life products and new product introductions to a growing industry.

They are most appropriate when little historical data is available or when experts have market intelligence that may affect the forecast. Such methods may also be necessary to forecast demand several years into the future in a new industry.
