Thresholds

 

Thresholds are used to associate, or not, overrun objectives on headings of the type Control total and Operation.

The defining of a threshold is optional.

CONFIGURATION

 

CONTROL COLUMN AND OPERATION HEADINGS

Setting thresholds

 

The properties window for headings of the type Control total and Operation is used to define one or more threshold values.

By right-clicking:

threshold control column heading

The following threshold definition window opens:

threshold definition

The Add button is used to create different heading thresholds.

For each threshold the following information can be defined:

  • A value:
    • constant: in this case the value of this constant must be defined,
    • or a heading whose type is numeric, control total (persistent) or operation (persistent). This heading may have the same dimension or have a dependent dimension.
  • A coefficient, applied to this value,
  • A color, when the target value is reached,
  • Another color when the target value is exceeded,
  • The Target box is checked for a given threshold. This target is used to display a percentage or to calculate the remainder.
  • A restriction method:
    • None: no restriction
    • Warning: a warning message will be shown when the threshold is exceeded.
    • Prohibition: an error message will be shown when the threshold is exceeded.

Display remainder

 

The Display remainder button implies that the heading shows the difference between the objective defined in the thresholds and the calculated value.

If no threshold has been defined, this remainder is not used.

 

Display as percentage

 

The Display as percentage button implies that the heading shows the result of the calculated value divided by the objective defined in the thresholds, multiplied by 100.

If no threshold has been defined, this percentage is not used.

 

EVENT REPORTS

By clicking on the button for defining the thresholds in the data to be calculated, the corresponding window appears.

The Add button is used to create the different thresholds of the field.

For each threshold, you can define :

  • A value :
    • A constant: in this case, the value of this constant must be specified,
    • or according to an item. This item can be one of the data to be calculated in the event report.
  • A coefficient applied to this value,
  • A colour when the threshold is reached,

Another colour when the threshold is exceeded.

 

WORKLOADS

By clicking on the button for defining the thresholds, the corresponding window appears.

The Add button is used to create the different thresholds of the field.

For each threshold, you can define :

  • A coefficient applied to the defined target, in the workload plan,
  • A colour when the coefficient is reached,
  • Another colour when the coefficient is exceeded.

USE

 

Viewing

Thresholds are used to add color to the various display views.

Thus, in the Schedule and Resource views, the headings with thresholds are colored with the threshold color.

In these views, it is no longer possible to fully color the resource using this color.

To do so, click on the button display parameters button for display settings, then define the background color for the resources.

 

Use by other functionalities

Thresholds can be used in two types of heading:

  • Control total type heading,
  • Operation type heading.

The workloads also use thresholds, but in a simplified way.

Use in the dimensions

You can define the color of a dimension via a calculation heading that can have thresholds. The resources will take the color of the calculation heading.
