Use the exponential smoothing formula to calculate the forecast for week 2.
of 0.5.
Exponential smoothing formula:
C5

Step 2:

= ABS(C6)

## Find the mean absolute percentage error.

Mean Absolute Percentage Error:
C8

Step 5:
Step 6:

= C4-C5

Find the mean absolute deviation, this is the absolute difference between th
and the demand forecasted. Therefore all deviations are positive.
Mean Absolute Deviation
C7

Step 4:

= (0.5*B4)+((1-0.5)*B5)

Find the mean error, this is the difference between the actual demand and th
forecasted
Mean error:
= Actual Demand - Forecasted Demand

Step 3:

## = Mean Absolute Deviation / Actual Demand (format as a p

= C7/C4
