Long Term Forecasting at Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce has a global reputation for excellence but international trade tensions, uneven growth, fiscal tightening and currency instability can still combine to make long term forecasting an unprecedented challenge.

Rolls-Royce, a world-leading provider of power systems and services, has established a strong position in civil aerospace, defence aerospace, marine, energy and nuclear.

For civil aerospace, specific factors affecting demand include GDP growth, aircraft productivity, operating costs, environmental issues and the number of aircraft retirements.

While the market is subject to disruption by external events, such as war, acts of terrorism, or economic downturns, it has always rebounded to its long-term growth trend.

Judy Nolan, Forecasting Process Manager at Rolls-Royce, will speak about the complexity and challenges of forecasting at IBF’s Complimentary Forecasting Meet-Up in the United Kingdom on Tuesday 4 October 2011 at Rolls-Royce plc, Derby, UK.

Nolan is the Forecasting Process Manager for Rolls-Royce plc, a corporate role that manages all the forecasting processes across the company.

She has a Pure Mathematics and Statistics degree from the University of Sheffield and is a Chartered Mathematician and trained in Six Sigma.

Registration for this meeting is free. Following the presentation, the meeting will continue at a local pub near Rolls-Royce’s office.
