Abstract

Forecasting has been one of the main applications of KK systems since they first made their appearance in the early post-war years. Two types of KK forecasting may be distinguished: (i) arithmetical forecasting; and (ii) judgemental forecasting. The first type will be discussed in this section and the next and the second type in section 9.3. In this section the procedure used in arithmetical KK forecasting will be described, while section 9.2 will be concerned with the main problem which is involved in KK forecasting of this type.
