What is the IQ Algorithm

The IQ Algorithm is a forecast cleansing algorithm that looks at the last 3 years of history and if there are consecutive years in which there was no demand then the forecast is changed to 0. It also works to cleans the affect of unusual spikes and other one time historical events.

This algorithm was developed to address some known challenges with forecasting algorithms where small forecast values are applied to periods where they should not be applied and are overly influenced by unusual historical demand patterns.
