    Hi, I am currently a student in the UK and for my final year dissertation I am creating a forecast model within excel of a sector in the steel industry. To gain the forecast I am using a Neural Network, and am unsure on some aspects (basics I know but we all gotta learn from somewhere) and would like to run some assumptions past you guys,

    I have created a multi-layered perception feed forward NN, used a transfer function of tanh, used a non linear least squares algorithm to train my NN.
    1. I have also been told that it is a autoregressive model but unsure what this means. ???
    2. I have also used the analysis tool solver to lower the error between predicted and actual results, is this excel addin one of these terms or something else entirely?

    Any help would be much appreciated
