Period dimension as POV vs Business
SummaryDesign model with Period dimension as POV vs Business
We are creating Statutory (STP) and Management allocation in same PCMCS application environment and planning to split both models based on POV dimension.
Planning to design our model with 2 POV dimensions: 1. View (members: STP and MGT) and 2. Scenario. Both models are not period dependent, therefore period dimension can be created as business dimension.
Requirement: Run STP allocation for current period and Management for all the months.
Option 1 - Period as business dimension:
Mgmt Allocation: Meet our requirement by selecting 'YearTotal' in the Source for allocation rules.
STP Allocation: To simplify the rule creation, setup current month in global context to default in all rule definitions. However, it requires updating global context manually every month as EPM automate doesn't support updating context. Also need to go into each rule and hit save individually then only it updates new global context on all existing rules (SR raised).
