Based on our calculations between the simple three-month moving average and the three period weighted moving average, the method that produced the best forecast was the weighted moving average. The reason why the weighted moving average is a better method is essentially because it does not assume that there will be equal weights for each period. Since the goal is to forecast future tire consumption, it makes more sense to assign heavier weights to more recent demand because the older demands become less useful. This is shown in the first paragraph of the case study when the senior mechanic said they usually stock for the year what they sold last year. Although this method isn’t 100% accurate, it makes more sense since you know demand …show more content…

This then leads to that calcium being lost. So if being a vegetarian has all these benefits why hans’t everyone changed their diet? Being a vegetarian isn’t as simple as it seems. They must pay attention to their diets so that they don’t miss out on vital nutrients that they would get if they were meat-eaters. The most prominent one being the protein that comes from eating meat. Being the most convenient source of protein, meat provides all ten essential amino acids and other nutrients such as iron, zinc, and B vitamins all in one serving. With most plant foods that are eaten by vegetarians, there aren’t many that can provide them with all those sources of nutrients in one serving. Meat is also the best source of vitamin B12, a vitamin which is necessary to the nervous and digestive system. In a peer-reviewed study, 2 in 3 vegetarians were vitamin B12 deficient compared to 1 in 20 meat eaters. One big issue with vegetarians is that meat-eaters are harming the environment by killing animals to satisfy their own diets. Although at first sight this may be true, it works both ways. Vegetarians must obtain their foods from the earth and
