BPC 10.1 Embedded - Dynamic report layouts

Hi,

We have a requirement where user wants to select any of the 8-9 predefined dimensions in BPC (and may be combinations) and enter the data for the selected combination. Then this data will distribute based on a business logic and saved to plan cube always at product level irrespective of selected combination.

My question is:

a. Is it possible to build a dynamic input form in BPC unified which will change it's structure based on the combination of the selection?

Since we will use an input ready BEx query as a base for this form I'm not really sure about the dynamic nature of the input form.

OR we need to narrow down the requirement to build multiple input forms and facilitate the navigation between these forms?

b. Is the design of distributing the entered data to all the required products using a planning function, realistic?

Thanks,

Raghu

    Hi Raghu,

    you questions are very high level. If you are interested in the features of an (input-ready) BEx query you can just start reading the documentation, cf.

    Planning Business Data with BW Integrated Planning - SAP Library

    and the subtopics.

    As in any BEx query you can drill-down characteristics, set filter at run time etc. so in this sense it is dynamic. Though from my experience planning scenarios are more 'guided' since created data should follow some consistency rule.

    Disaggregation is a build in feature of an input-ready query, you again have to read the documentation to find out whether this meets the requirements. In addition there exist many planning function types that might be helpful; if nothing fits one can also consider to use FOX or an exit planning function type where you can implement your business logic.

    So very general answer to a very general question.

    Regards,

    Gregor
