Awarded Outstanding Academic Book by CHOICE magazine in its first edition, FORECASTING, TIME SERIES, AND REGRESSION: AN APPLIED APPROACH now appears in a fourth edition that illustrates the vital importance of forecasting and the various statistical techniques that can be used to produce them. With an emphasis on applications, this book provides both the conceptual development and practical motivation students need to effectively implement forecasts of their own. Bruce Bowerman, Richard O'Connell, and Anne Koehler clearly demonstrate the necessity of using forecasts to make intelligent decisions in marketing, finance, personnel management, production scheduling, process control, and…

Richard T. O'Connell is an associate professor of decision sciences at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He has more than 32 years of experience teaching basic statistics, statistical quality control and process improvement, regression analysis, time series forecasting, and design of experiments to both undergraduate and graduate business students. In 2000 Professor O�Connell received an Effective Educator award from the Richard T. Farmer School of Business Administration. Together with Bruce L. Bowerman, he has written seven textbooks. These include Forecasting and Time Series: An Applied Approach and Linear Statistical Models: An Applied Approach. He is one of the first college…
