Feasibilities of Network Diagrams: IBP Analytics Application

Hello Team,

We have a Priority A requirement on depicting my client's supply chain entities visually and track the flow of respective key figure values across the network. I'm building a POC for the same, and using IBP 1611 version.

I have some doubts on the Network Charts Functionalities. Please shed some light

1) Can we explode the Network diagram ? Like a Drill down effect. Click on one node of the network which opens up another network diagram ?

2) Can users go to the Tabular format of the Network diagram, and change the values directly in the table for a particular entry, save it, & refresh the dashboard to see the updated network diagram.

3) Can we put some alerts on the Network diagram or Can we configure the Heat-map network diagram, and some how manually maintain the values of legend, to finally use those colors as an Alert? For example: Lets say a Network diagram have 3 plants, and one plant has very less capacity, so even for the less key-figure value, system should depict it in a different color? (or can this be achieved by the Alerts app with some visualization in it)

I would be very grateful for every suggestion & comment :)

    Hi Venkat,

    As per my knowledge below functionality available in control tower.

    1. Network diagram drill down functionality is not yet available. I tried to build this but could not build it.

    2. We can not change the network diagram directly, based on your attributes diagram will show. In your case we need to change the relevant attributes and filter the data records which data populate in network.

    3. Alerts can not be linked to network diagram, in alert definition under Metrics network diagram not available.

    All your requirements are important to business to identify and address high-level issues. These requirements might be in future releases or road map items.

    Best Regards,

      Thanks much for your time and response Lingaiah. Got some clarity on the subject.

      Even i thought the same about the "Network Diagram drill down" & "Changing the Network node values" in tabular formats functionalities. As of now, they are not available :(

      Can you please share any documentation on the configuration of the Alerts in Fiori app, how we assign users to an alert etc. is my email id. It would really help me, if you can send me any sort of documentation
