Complex mathematical models used in SAP F&R include:
Trend; Seasonal variability; Factors that have an effect on demand: holidays, promotional offers, price changes, local events, needs based on self-actualization.
Forecasting method is chosen automatically against the demand dynamics during the period of a product inclusion into a product line.
