Supporting Demand Planning Process with Walsh-Fourier Based Techniques
The demand planning is one of the most frequented topics in logistics planning within the supply chain management. The prediction of future demand is a very important phase in the enterprise resource planning in point of view of supporting other planning functions (e.g. production planning, material requirements planning etc.).

The dyadic harmonic analysis is a new stream and alternative solution to recognize and understand the behavior of the economical time series.
