- Weighted moving average
- Single exponential smoothing
- Double exponential smoothing

- Curve fitting
- Polynomial regression
- Neural network

- Click Next.
The
parameters page of the specified forecast model opens.

- Specify the parameters of the forecast model and click Finish.
The Forecast wizard closes and the
forecast model is displayed in the Forecasting Models table.

A duplicate model is created and displayed in the Forecasting
Model table. This feature is useful if you want to test
several models of the same type with slightly different parameters
each time.
