The second solution comes to us from the Sisifo Page Team. Click here to read their report:  http://sisifospage.tech/2017-10-30-forecasting-bsts.html.

Here is the three month result (rolling 12 month demand):
• Month 80 = \$81.8 million.
• Month 81 = \$81.3 million.

Here is their three month forecast:
• Month 80 = \$81.5 million.
• Month 81 = \$81.2 million.
• Month 82 = \$81.0 million.
Here is their "squared error":
• 0.4 Trillion.  This solution takes the lead!
Solution #3 is tomorrow - we'll see how this solution compares!
