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: `Als Indiana Jones econoom zou zijn, zou hij Steven Levitt heten. Freakonomics leest als een detective. Wall Street Journal Wat is gevaarlijker: een pistool of een zwembad? Wat hebben sumoworstelaars en schoolmeesters gemeen? En waarom wonen drugsdealers bij hun moeder? Het zijn vragen die je niet gauw van een econoom zou verwachten.

Of de waarheid over vastgoedmakelaars. En, stelt hij, heeft het dalen van de misdaadcijfers in plaats van met een goed draaiende economie niet eigenlijk alles te maken met de legalisering van abortus? Freakonomics is het leukste en verhelderendste boek over economie dat je je kunt voorstellen. Een mix van essentiële feiten en een meeslepende vertelling, die onze blik op de moderne wereld voorgoed verandert en verscherpt. `Een fascinerend en belangrijk boek, leesbaar, compact en barstensvol informatie over de wereld om ons heen.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The purpose of this thesis is to expand the current fashion forecasting methodology by applying a strategic planning and forecasting technique called scenario planning (also referred to as the 3Shell Method4) to fashion forecasting. In traditional fashion forecasting, Practitioners have relied on methods that primarily focus on arriving at one 3official future.4 This official future is created by discovering innovations (gained through historical and current analysis), applying them to fashion frameworks and then interpreting them in a future context. In some cases, forecasters may allow for more than one future, but it is still generally circumscribed around a single future with variations of good/better/best or perhaps best case/worst case scenarios. The method of scenario planning offers opportunities to better address the complexity of the external environment of the fashion world, to challenge the mental models of fashion forecasters and fashion industry professionals, and to help fashion businesses anticipate change and manage risk in an uncertain world. Scenario planning is the beginning of a larger strategic conversation that creates a common language among participants and most importantly it relies on the creation of multiple divergent futures or scenarios. Once developed, the narratives of the scenarios are richly fleshed out allowing you to literally 3live4 in a projected future and to test your strategies or concepts for 3robustness4 and 3resiliency.4 This thesis: 1. provides an overview of fashion forecasting and scenario planning techniques; 2. examines the similarities between the two processes; 3. determines how the two methodologies diverge in practice; 4. outlines which tools used by fashion forecasters could be easily adapted to the scenario planning process and what fashion forecasters need to add to their repertoire in order to utilize scenario planning; 5. proposes how scenario planning could be applied to fashion forecasting and what some of those specific applications might be; 6. outlines the general difficulties of scenario planning and determines how those would relate specifically to the fashion industry; 7. and in conclusion, creates a case for utilizing scenario planning in fashion forecasting by emphasizing the benefits of scenario planning.
