I'm completely at loss. I'm reading all the help + img-documenantion, but i'm not able to figure out how to get a calculated metric. E.g. a simple figure where I have $/per weight * weight = X $.

I understand the metric definition part, but cannot figure out how to customizise and configure the program to calculate it.

ANy pointers, documentation etc appreciated.

Dear Espen,

When the customizing is maintained in:
Common Functions > Metrics Management > Define Metrics
... then the Metrics-Values can be directly maintained on tab "Deliverables > Metrics". Then the fields are ready for input and can be maintained. (Assignment of Metrics to item-type must be done.)

When you would like to use a calculation for the metrics-values you have to use a report within
the "Key Figures".
The customizing can you find in:
Portfolio Management > Process and Service Settings > Key Figure Monitor.

When we create this report for a Key Figure, can that report use manually entered metrics data as input?

In Espen's example above, can "$/per weight" and "weight" be manually entered metrics, and "X $" is then a calculated metrics/ key figure?
