Integration of Detail-Planning Cubes (Cost Center Cube)

Return to Cost Center Model Overview

When running the Human Resources and Cost Center models on the same OLAP database, detailed data from the Personnel Costs cube can be automatically integrated into the Cost Center cube. The integration is implemented as rules in the Cost Center cube. These rules are defined as part of the KPI calculation.

The sample data package for the model contains some samples for the integration. 

Example

The Cost Type element 311070 (Salaries & Wages) integrates values from the measure Wages and Salaries in the Personnel Costs cube.

  • The Employee dimension exists only in the Personnel Costs cube; the total value from All Employees is integrated.
  • The Currency dimension exists only in the Cost Center cube. The value is integrated only into the LC (Local Currency) element, while other elements are set to null. However, these other currency elements may be calculated by the currency conversion, which takes precedence over the KPI calculation.
  • All other dimensions are shared.

The rule expression for this is:

The integration for planning versions (assigned to the P calculation schema) and for the actual version (assigned to the A calculation schema) are identical. The integration rule instances should be generated only if the source cube Personnel Costs exists.

The attributes for the Cost Type element 311070 (Salaries & Wages) are:

Attribute

Value

Remarks

PCalculation

IF( !’Currency’ == “LC” …

The complete expression is shown above.

PCalculationDependencies

Cube:Personnel Costs

Create rule instance only if the source cube Personnel Costs exists.

ACalculation

IF( !’Currency’ == “LC” …

Identical to the PCalculation attribute.

ACalculationDependencies

Cube:Personnel Costs

Create rule instance only if the source cube Personnel Costs exists.
