The tools are moving average‚ weighted moving average and exponential smoothing. The moving average takes the total of actual demand for previous months then divides by the number of months added. The number of months that is used can be predefined such as using the previous three months. This is the simplest and easiest calculation but often is not accurate since it can have a lag in spotting trends (Murphy). The weighted moving average is similar to the moving average but it places weights

Explainthe relationship between the average cost and marginal cost curve? Answer: We usually assume that the Average Cost curve is U shaped The MC curve will intercept the AC curves at its minimum point. When AC is decreasing‚ MC lies below AC - because when MC is below AC‚ producing an extra unit of output will pull down average cots When AC is increasing‚ MC lies above AC - because when MC is above AC‚ producing an extra unit of output will raise average costs Therefore MC will intercept the
