    The use of computers in financial planning has become an area of increasing interest to financial management and data processing users. Computing systems facilitate the use of financial models in that they allow for the storage and retrieval of a representation of a financial plan and also for the evaluation of the consequences of “what if” conditions. Thus a financial model is a too... View full abstract»

    Business planning has become a major management concern within many corporate organizations since business planning systems now assist in the conduct and management of many corporate activities. Common to all planning groups is the rising cost of development, implementation, and maintenance of planning systems and, as a result, financial planning programs and techniques have been formulated to fac...

  • Planning-data systems

    Planning and planning data can be categorized, according to managerial objectives, as operational, tactical, and strategic. The use of a computer to process planning data can be aided by the use of a planning systems generator such as PSG II, a programmed discipline that allows the business and/or financial planner to specify a data bank and enter data values, to set up rules for additional data g...

    Users of smaller systems, such as an IBM System/3, can design and implement financial models using a method similar to the top-down approach used on larger systems. There are three approaches depending on the system configuration: card systems, FORTRAN and DASD systems, and non-FORTRAN and DASD systems. The financial modeling systems resulting from these methods utilize approaches (such as top-dow... View full abstract»

    We have described our experimental approach to bank modeling, one intention of which is to permit bank management to estimate how well the policies they devise will stand up under the uncertainties that make the banking industry so dynamic. One need only look at government actions that affect the country's monetary policy to see the importance of possible but unexpected contingencies. We have mode... View full abstract»

  • Forecasting techniques

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):187 - 209

    Computer-assisted forecasting techniques have been presented. Time-series extrapolation techniques are based upon the historical pattern of the item to be forecasted. Of particular importance are causal (functional) models which take influencing factors into consideration. Regardless whether the causal model comprises a single relation or multiple relations, one must be aware of the various tests ... View full abstract»
