REPORT ON THE FORECASTS OF UNIT SALES
The aim of this report is to assess the predictions for the next year of unit sales in our three core product lines.
SALES FORECASTS EVALUATION
Firstly, according to our prognosis, the chart shows that the demand for fridges appears stable during 2012.
Regarding TVs, a significant raise has been predicted and sales are expected to be the double (20 thousand units) by the end of the year.
Finally, in terms of cookers’ sales a considerable fluctuation is forecasted: 5 thousands units in the winter quarters and 10 thousands in the summer ones.
In the light of the forecasts, it can be stated that our most stable product line is the fridges’ one, while cookers seem to be a seasonal product. Nevertheless, our most profitable products are clearly going to be TVs.

Both the former and the latter seem to be pushing our staff out of the company’s building, which explains the empty canteen at lunchtime.
SUGGESTIONS FOR RECOVERING THE CANTEEN’S GUESTS
I would mainly recommend two simple ways for gaining our staff back to the canteen: the first one is to allow smoking in the interior terrace...
