STRUCTURE: Operation type heading

This is a dimension or form type of heading.

You can choose between two types of operation:

  • Duration,
  • Formula.

An Operation type of heading can perform:

  • A calculation between two or more headings with the same dimension, for each resource of a dimension in the case of a Duration calculation,
  • A calculation between two or more headings with the same dimension, possibly combining constants, for each resource of a dimension in the case of a Formula calculation.

This type of heading can be persistent or not.

You can apply thresholds (objectives) to it, as for the other calculated headings.

Case of the dimension heading

 

This type of heading can be persistent or not.

You can apply thresholds (objectives) to it, as for calculated headings.

Duration

A Duration Operation heading performs a calculation in the form of a difference between two date headings with the same dimension, for each resource of a dimension.

 

Formula

A Formula Operation heading performs a calculation between several headings with the same dimension and may also include constants, for each resource of a dimension.

Case of the form heading

 

You cannot apply thresholds (objectives) to it as for the calculated headings.

 

Duration

A Duration Operation heading performs a calculation in the form of a difference between two date values of the same event:

  • heading of the same form,

  • heading of a dimension,

  • Event start date,

  • Event end date.

Formula

A Formula Operation heading performs a calculation between several headings from the same form, and may also include constants, for each operation of an event.

This type of heading is always persistent.

FUNCTIONAL PREREQUISITE

 

Form

A form heading that is the Duration operation type can function without any prerequisite. However, it may be useful to have two Date hour headings in the same form.

Dimension: non persistent heading

Duration

A Duration operation dimension heading that is non persistent requires one or two headings from the same dimension and their type must be:

Formula

A Formula operation heading that is non persistent requires one or two headings from the same dimension and their type must be:

  • Numerical,
  • Control column (persistent or not),
  • Operation (persistent or not),
  • or Events values (persistent or not).

Dimension: persistent heading

Duration

A Duration operation dimension heading that is persistent requires one or two headings from the same dimension and their type must be:

  • Date hour,
  • or Persistent Events Values.

Formula

A Formula operation heading that is persistent requires one or two headings from the same dimension and their type must be:

  • Numerical,
  • Persistent Control Column,
  • Persistent Operation,
  • or Persistent Events Values.
