Developing an Industry Forecast Model and Quarterly Report for the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF)

Project Details

Layman's description

Having a clear understanding of the future developments in your sector is a key advantage for any business, which is why the Builder’s Merchants Federation (BMF) wanted to empower its members with quarterly forecasts. Supporting industry leaders such as Travis Perkins and Jewson, the BMF reached out to Birmingham City University (BCU) to develop a model that would forecast the economic condition of their sector.

Dr Erez Yerushalmi is to train and supervise an economist within the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF). Together, they will develop a forecast model of sales for the Builders and Merchants industry, and produce the first industry report, which will become a quarterly BMF publication.
