Features

The following statuses are displayed in the front end on the Item Dashboard and Item Overviewview:

Staffing Status

The staffing status for an item is determined by calculating the difference between total demand (for all roles) and total assignment (assignments for all roles) with a given assignment unit during the item's duration.

The formula is as follows:

Assignment = 0 Status: red (configurable)
0 < Assignment  Status: yellow (configurable)
Assignment = Demand Status: green (configurable)
Assignment > Demand Status: yellow + green.

In the item dashboard, when you click the status in the Staffing Statuscolumn, you can see a brief status overview of the staffing situation for the portfolio item based on the demand (role demand in Project Management) and the resource supply (resource assignments) for this item with a given assignment unit for one year in ranges of three months.

Scheduling Status

The schedule status for an item is based on the ratio of completed tasks to date to all tasks that are planned to be completed to date. Each task is weighted by the number of planned hours it takes to complete and the percentage completion of the task.

In the item dashboard, when you click the status in the Scheduling Status column, you can see a brief status overview of the scheduling situation for the portfolio item in ranges as follows:

  • 0% to 24%
  • 25% to 49%
  • 50% to 74%
  • 75% to 99%
  • 100%

Budget Status

The budget status indicator gives a summary of planned cost and actual cost as follows:

Planned Cost = Sum of financial data for amount type Budget
Actual Cost = Sum of financial data for amount type Actual Cost

The budget status is calculated as follows:

  • For budget cost (total) > actual cost:
budget ratio = (actual cost (total) - budget cost (total)) / actual cost (total) x 100
  • For budget cost (total) < = actual cost (total):
budget ratio = (actual cost (total) - budget cost (total)) / budget cost (total) x 100

In the item dashboard, when you click the status in the Budget Status column, you can see a brief status overview of the budget situation of the portfolio item.

Selection

Test Mode: Set this indicator to run the report in simulation mode; no data is saved.

Update Key Figure Thresholds: If you set this indicator, the system updates the key figure thresholds for the selected objects. Note: the system only updates the generic thresholds, that have been calculated by the BAdI:Threshold Values for Key Figure Monitor.

Update Key Figure Values: If you set this indicator, the system updates the key figure values for the selected objects by using the report defined the Customizing activity Define Key Figures.

Output

In the Log Display, you can see several messages that indicate whether the budget, staffing, and scheduling icons have been calculated as configured in Customizing and whether the update of key figure values or key figure thresholds has been successful.

If you do not set the Test Mode indicator, the log also displays a message to confirm that data was saved successfully. If saving was not successful, the system shows an error message.
