Abstract:

This study investigates the feasibility of increasing the precision of production lead time forecasts by the Defense Logistics Agency through the use of regression analysis and leading economic indicators. A sample study demonstrates the feasibility of the approach by reducing the variance of forecast errors and estimating a potential upward bias. An extensive critical survey of existing forecasting methods is included in this study.
