Forecast function

Postby paulvbaal » Wed Apr 12, 2017 6:57 pm

Is there any plan to implement a function similar to the Forecast function in Vensim? We are relying heavily on the function for our Vensim projects and we are considering switching to Ventity for some, but this is only possible if there is a similar functionality.

Definitely. We'll provide a direct analog as well as something more robust to noise.

Hi,
I'm currently modeling a market using Ventity. As I'm particularly interested in the analysis of the investors' behavior in this market, a forecast function could be of great use. Have you make any progress on the matter?

No, but it's pretty easy to implement directly as a structure if you don't need multiple instances.
