Hi Experts,

I need your help for the below problem scenario -

 

The same Source Pool is required in 4 different Allocation Rules. Each rule allocates a certain percentage of the Pool.

 

Example:

Source - $100

Rule 1 - Allocates 47.5%

Rule 2 - Allocates 47.5%

Rule 3 - Allocates 2.5%

Rule 4 - Allocates 2.5%

 

Challenge : After every rule is run, the source gets exhausted so I cannot keep the same allocation factor in my PCMCS rules.

 

My solution :

I made a calculation tweak and modified the factors as below to allocate on the basis of Remainder

Source - $100

Rule 1 - Allocates 47.5%

Rule 2 - Allocates 90.47619%

Rule 3 - Allocates 50.0%

Rule 4 - Allocates 100%

Howdy, Stranger!
