A comparative study between the neural network and the winters' model in forecasting

  • Published : 1992.06.01


This paper is organized as follows. Section 2 illustrates several applications of neural networks. Section 3 presents the theoretical aspects of the major neural network paradigms as well as the structure of the back -propagation network used in the study. Section 4 describes the experiment including data analysis, modeling, and the performance criteria followed by the detailed discussion of the experimental results. Future research avenues including advantages and limitations of neural network are presented in the last section.
