BPS: Planning with Non-Cumulative KF

Former Member

Hi All,

i'm trying to implement Headcount Planning and to do this i'm thinking to use a non-cumulative KF (Headcount) with delta cumulative KF (Hiring and Dismissal).

The user should plan the delta cumulative KF.

I would like to know if this is possible in BPS 'cause i have read that it's "better" not to use non-cumulative KF in BPS.

Thanks in advance

Hi Fabio,

It is suggested because if we plan based on Account Model then we can decrease volume of planning and lot other advantages and you can refer to for relavant documentation infact.

But it is depended on your Business and customization how you want to go with( I mean Your organization view) and in what way you are asked to plan.

Very Thanks Marc,

so you say me that i cannot plan on the cumulative KF associated to the Non-Cumulative one, example:

1) ZHEADCNC -> Non-Cumulative KF with INFLOW and OUTFLOW:

1a)ZHEADCAS -> Cumulative KF for INFLOW

1b)ZHEADCCS -> Cumulative KF for OUTFLOW

Is it not possible to plan on 1a) and 1b) and get the exact value on the non-cumulative KF?

The question is that the user should plan the headcount variation and not the "headcount stock" on a defined cluster.

I appreciate any hints

Hello Fabio,

you do not have an option. BPS does not support planning on non-cummulative key figures. So you have to do the planning on the cummulative key figure anyway.

An alternative is to use a cummulative KF for headcount with an exception aggregation for the time dimension. Then you could plan the YTD figures directly.
