About this course

Course code TPD89888GC20
Duration 4 Days

This course is designed to teach you how to create and manage Standard Profitability and Management Ledger models by using Profitability and Cost Management. You create applications for Standard Profitability and Management Ledger models in Performance Management Architect and deploy them to a Profitability and Cost Management server. You define stages for a Standard Profitability model, create drivers, and assign destination intersections to source intersections. You generate calculation scripts and calculate the model. You use stage balancing and trace allocation reports to validate the model. You create rules and rule sets for a Management Ledger model. You configure the execution order of the rules and run calculations. You use rule balancing and trace allocation reports to validate the model.Learn To:Create and view reportsGenerate calculation scripts and calculate model stagesCreate model stages and points of viewCreate and deploy Profitability and Cost Management applicationsLoad data into Profitability and Cost Management applicationsCreate drivers, driver selections, and assignmentsCreate Management Ledger applicationsCreate Management Ledger rule sets and rulesLive Virtual Class FormatA Live Virtual Class (LVC) is exclusively for registered students; unregistered individuals may not view an LVC at any time.
