## exponential smoothing

[‚ek·spə′nen·chəl ′smüth·iŋ]
(industrial engineering)
A mathematical-statistical method of forecasting used in industrial engineering which assumes that demand for the following period is some weighted average of the demands for the past periods.

## exponential smoothing

A widely used technique in forecasting trends, seasonality and level change. Works well with data that has a lot of randomness.

The combination of autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) and seasonal exponential smoothing (SES) techniques were found to be the most accurate.
Also the authors of this study would like to implement weighting method to weight the three criteria based on exponential smoothing for multi-criteria inventory classification (Jamshidi & Jain, 2008).
To improve the results in the event that excessive variation in the electricity consumption during the occupied or unoccupied hours causes the first and last knot points to incorrectly identify the startup and shutdown times, exponential smoothing with adaptive updating of the discount factor can be used to smooth the hourly observations before solving the constrained optimization problem in Equation 2.
Let be a popularity degree of a block is defined as the future access frequency based on the number of access demand, at a time, the popularity degree of a block can be calculated using Holt's Linear and Exponential Smoothing (HLES).

Smoothers (and parameters in italics) used are lowess (weighted quadratic least-squares), f (span); Friedman super smoother (cross-validated running lines), span (span); cubic spline, spar (smoothing parameter), Savitzky-Golay (local polynomial regression), p, f (polynomial order, frame size); Kalman (state space model), none; running mean, wsize (window size); Whittaker (recursive penalized B-splines), [lambda] (spline parameter); and exponential moving average (EMA) (weighted recursive exponential smoothing), [alpha] (spline parameter).
