Frequently there is a time lag between awareness of an impending event or need and occurrence of that event. This lead time is the main reason for planning and forecasting. If the lead time is zero or very small, there is no need for planning. If the lead time is long, and the outcome of the nal event is conditional on identiable factors, planning can perform an important role. In such situations, forecasting is needed to determine when an event will occur or a need arise, so that appropriate actions can be taken. In management and administrative situations the need for planning is great because the lead time for decision making ranges from several years for the case of capital investments to a few days or hours for transportation or production schedules to a few seconds for telecommunication routing or electrical utility loading. Forecasting is an important aid in eective and ecient planning.
