READING: Forecasting is a crucial function for companies in the fashion industry, but for many real-life forecasting applications in the, the data patterns are notorious for being highly volatile and it is very difficult, if not impossible, to analytically learn about the underlying patterns. As a result, many traditional methods (such as pure statistical models) will fail to make a sound prediction. Over the past decade, advances in artificial intelligence and computing technologies have provided an alternative way of generating precise and accurate forecasting results for fashion businesses. Despite being an important and timely topic, there is currently an absence of a comprehensive reference source that provides up-to-date theoretical and applied research findings on the subject of intelligent fashion forecasting systems. This three-part handbook fulfills this need and covers materials ranging from introductory studies and technical reviews, theoretical modeling research, to intelligent fashion forecasting applications and analysis. This book is suitable for academic researchers, graduate students, senior undergraduate students and practitioners who are interested in the latest research on fashion forecasting.

READING: Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Computer Science - Applied, grade: 1, Fachhochschule Salzburg (Information Technology und Systems Management), language: English, abstract: Precise order quantity forecasting for fashion retailers is difficult, because of the specific nature of fashion products namely long lead times, seasonality, and product attributes such as sizes, colours, and cuts. This thesis contributes to order quantity forecasting for fashion products by the use of regression analysis. For this purpose, forecasting techniques in general, and parametric as well as nonparametric regression analysis in articular are presented. This is followed by fundamentals of data mining, specifically data preprocessing and data warehousing, in order to be able to apply regression analysis on historical sales data. Furthermore, to examine the quality of forecasts a method for evaluating the economical benefit of order quantity forecasting was developed. As a next step, the presented methods for forecasting were applied to historical sales data. Therefore, sales data was analysed, regression models were applied and forecasts were calculated and evaluated finally. This thesis is concluded by suggesting a forecasting implementation and by discussing the contributions to order quantity forecasting.

READING: "An assistant buyer for a fashion-forward chain of stores has been promoted to buyer of men's related separates. She begins her new job in time for buying spring seasonal merchandise through her central buying office and also purchasing fall imported private-label merchandise. The buyer meets with the merchandise manager, who explains her customer and what merchandise classifications she will oversee. Her boss also explains what business should be undertaken: preparing, researching, and planning the purchase of spring merchandise, along with preparing information to present to upper management for producing fall imported private label merchandise. She is also told that the fall merchandise's theme is "crew." The merchandise manager also suggests that she compile a listing of relevant fashion-forecasting sources to aid her in her fashion-merchandising research. She does so, and presents the research to her boss. He tells the buyer that her list should be pared down and to try and narrow the resources and/or rank order the list, as he doesn't think she can complete that much research in the four days allotted for the plans. She has no idea what "crew" is and feels that the more research the better her plans will be, and she wants her first buying plans to be great. The buyer is disappointed and frustrated."--Bloomsbury Publishing.
