   Publication details



The FoReco (Forecast Reconciliation) package is designed for point forecast reconciliation, a post-forecasting process aimed to improve the accuracy of the base fore- casts for a system of linearly constrained (e.g. hierarchical/grouped) time series.
It offers classical (bottom-up and top-down), and modern (optimal and heuristic combination) forecast reconcilia- tion procedures for cross-sectional, temporal, and cross- temporal linearly constrained time series (Di Fonzo and Girolimetto, 2021)1.
