"A couple of thoughts...
Techniques: Croston's method is quite popular, as is Vanguard Dampened Trend. You can also consider using Monte Carlo simulation.
Process: I would assume that you need a forecast for some other type of planning (such as…"

Yi-Chun, yes, I know what you mean about Ops Research being not well-received. Many haven't heard of it, and maybe name itself is a problem, it is "non-intuitive". I usually just say "Industrial Engineering" or "quant methods" when trying to describe O.R. And the other term, from ORSA/TIMS, Mgmt Science, is no better. However, in the military, O.R. is definitely known and regarded highly. I've interviewed for defense contractors, O.R.jobs, never worked for one though.
I got my Ph.D. (way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth!) from indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta. I am now working as VP of Research & Innovation at TNS, a market research company.
I started my PhD in IE in Spring 2007 and this is my 5th semester here at OSU. We (luckily) have a very well renowned Data Base Marketing/Data Mining Professor - Dr.Goutam Chakraborty, who spearheads the SAS /SAS EM courses. At OSU we get access to all SAS software (ofcourse not the latest suites with forecasting etc..) but with almost all functionalities. We also use them for our courses extensively for Real-world projects and Data Mining Tournaments.
Though this is not my research area it ties closely to OR/Supply Chain Consulting....
