ABSTRACT
This paper addresses the issue of sales forecasting using a new approach based on connectionist and subspace decomposition methods.A tool is designed to support company management in the process of determining expected sales figures. Neural networks trained with a back-propagation algorithm are used to predict the weekly sales of a video game. For this purpose, optimal topology is found and a time-sensitive neural network is implemented. We have considered the use of many influencing indicators and parameters as inputs. In order to assess the relevance of these parameters, we perform a pre-processing based on Principal Component Analysis.
