Return to Sales Model Overview

The measures in the Sales_measure dimension include all revenue, sales-related costs and the drivers to compute these. The measures are connected through their calculations and are grouped in global subsets, which are visible in the web reports. The measures can be configured to a high degree. When measures are added, modified, or removed, the calculations and global subsets that use them must be modified accordingly to preserve the functionality.

The sales measures can be configured through their attributes:

Attribute

Description

Name

Readable name of the account. Localized translations can be provided. This attribute is visible in the report. There is no hard-coded behavior implemented on this name. (string)

Description

Long text for the account. This attribute can contain a definition of the amounts booked to this account or instructions for the planners. Localized translations can be provided. (string)

Format

Number format for this account to be driven by the database. (string)

PCalculation

Calculation rule for planning versions (versions having calculation schema P). (string)

PCalculationDependencies

Dependency for the calculation for planning versions (versions having calculation schema P). (string)

ACalculation

Calculation rule for planning versions (versions having calculation schema P). (string)

ACalculationDependencies

Dependency for the calculation for planning versions (versions having calculation schema P). (string)

Conversion Type

Defines which exchange rate is used during currency conversion. Valid values are base elements of the Conversion Type dimension, e.g. AverageMonth EndMonth Start, and ~. Sales accounts usually use currency conversion with average rates. Use ~ to suppress the currency conversion, e.g. for statistical figures like number of heads. (string)

See Fact Cube Using Currency Conversion and Configuration of Conversion Types

AggregationType

Semi additive measure behavior. (string)

Valid values are:

  • (empty): Regular additive behavior
  • First: First child
  • Last: Last child
  • Avg: Average of children

The following sections describe the initial setup of the measures.
