About system-defined rules for financial models in Planning Business Modeler

The rules that PerformancePoint Planning Business Modeler generates automatically are called system-defined rules. System-defined rules can be procedural rules that are run explicitly, or they can be definition rules that are run every time that a query involves the values that the rule governs.

System-defined business rules are part of the collection of elements that are associated with a model. When you create a model, Planning Business Modeler links a collection of associated elements that vary with the type of model created. These elements include dimensions, variables, and system-defined rules. For example, when you create a financial model with shares calculations, Planning Business Modeler adds a set of important model properties and then links aggregation, consolidation, and flow rules.

When you click the Business Rules tab for a model, the Business Rules workspace displays the rules and definitions for that model, grouped into rule sets.

Note:  Most system-defined rules cannot be deleted and cannot be modified.
