We are looking in the procces of bidding out a lot of seasonal business. The company work for has different fluxuations for different products. We are searching for 2 things.
1) I was to identify the 2or 3 month seasons based on a formula
2) A way to formulaically apply that to another data set.

Here is an example:
We can see from the data that we start with season 1, then in May and june we have 2 months of increased data or season 2, in July this drops again and is season 3. Oct-Dec is variable and we would not want to call that a season.
2011 Shipment distribution</SPAN>2013 Distribution based on 120 shipments</SPAN>
Jan</SPAN> 1 </SPAN>
Feb</SPAN> 1 </SPAN>
Mar</SPAN> 2 </SPAN>
Apr</SPAN> 2 </SPAN>
May</SPAN> 10 </SPAN>
Jun</SPAN> 10 </SPAN>
Jul</SPAN> 2 </SPAN>
Aug</SPAN> 2 </SPAN>
Sep</SPAN> 2 </SPAN>
Oct</SPAN> 8 </SPAN>
Nov</SPAN> 1 </SPAN>
Dec</SPAN> 8 </SPAN>
