 English term or phrase: one-number principle One-Number forecast process
 principio de la cifra única Explanation:Another problem is consistency of forecast information. In enterprise computing we are used today to have integrated transaction systems. We are used to the one number principle. You don’t want to have, for example, several volume numbers: one number for the expected sales or demand, another number for buying your raw materials, another one for production. You would end up in chaos. So you want only one number as a basis for all that different processes. And for forecasting it’s the same – we need the one number principle. Therefore, forecasts have to be set up in a way that makes this kind of consistency, the one number principle, possible.
