Mohammad M. Ali and John E. Boylan

Foresight: The International Journal of Applied Forecasting, 2010, issue 18, 14-18

Abstract: Many studies have pointed to the possibility of substantial benefits from collaboration among supply-chain partners, including information sharing - one form of which is the sharing of forecast information (FIS). In this article, Mohammad Ali and John Boylan report the substantial and specific benefits of FIS found in their study of two large companies: a European supermarket and a U.S. hardware manufacturer.
