Bias is a term frequently used in forecasting and six sigma. Bias is the term used when a consistent deviation occurs from the mean/average.
The deviation is always in one direction (either high deviation or low deviation). When forecasting a zero bias would represent a perfect forecast. In six sigma, 0 deviation would represent absolutely no deviation from the established standard.
