attach(mtcars)
plot(hp, mpg)
?lm
# creat a regression model
model1 <- lm(mpg ~ hp, data = mtcars)
~~~~~~~~
# call a summary of the model result
summary(model1)

?abline
# plot the regression line
abline(model1, col = "blue")

# forecast the airpassenger data
AirPassengers

# plot the data
ts.plot(AirPassengers)

# seasonal decomposition
fit <- stl(AirPassengers, s.window="period")

# plot the T/S/I component
plot(fit)

# Task
# apply the stl function to "BJsales" data

# plot the original BJsales data
ts.plot(BJsales)

# transform into the Time Series (ts) data using "ts"
bj.ts <- ts(BJsales, start=c(1964,1), 
 end=c(1976,6), 
 frequency=12)

# plot the ts data
plot(bj.ts)

# seasonal decompositioning bj.ts
fit.bj <- stl(bj.ts, s.window="period")

# plot the time series components
plot(fit.bj, 
 main ="decomposition of BJsales")

A Book Review

All students are required to review a book in relations to logistics and supply chain system. Such books should not be a textbook. A management pocket or a person/company bibliography are recommended. You may find my suggested list here.
