Abstract:

The reasons for performing this study were 1 To develop a fiscal year FY 86 surface cargo forecast requested by the Military Traffic Management Command MTMC. Transportation workload forecasts are statements of worldwide peacetime cargo lift requirements which are provided to the Military Sealift Command MSC and Military Airlift Command MAC by the shipper services. They state requirements in measurement tons by route, commodity, and program. 2 To assist MTMC in the establishment of an operational forecasting capability using a combination of Box-Jenkins and Winters forecasting methods. The Winters and Box-Jenkins forecasting methods were obtained by MTMC and their personnel trained in the logic and use of the forecasting methods.
