The weights are stated from the most current time period to the oldest time period. F-3 Using the table above, with smoothing constants of a = .10 and then a = .30, forecast income for week 11 using exponential smoothing. Solutions F-1 On the basis of minimizing the mean square error, the three-period simple moving average gives a better forecast (smaller MSE).
