Allocation rules in Planning Business Modeler

Allocation rules allocate a single value over a range of other cells. For example, allocation rules might allocate forecasted revenue over a range of specified months, based on actual revenue from the previous year.

There are no system-defined allocation rules. Allocation rules must be created by the user.

Rules that perform allocations can distribute values in a single model, or distribute values across different models.

  • Single model allocation

    Distributes a cost or resource across a range of specified cells.

  • PullCrossModelAllocation

    Distributes a cost or resource when the source to be distributed and the destination that receives the distribution are from different models.

    The rule is saved to the destination model, and is said to pull data from the source model.

  • PushCrossModelAllocation

    Distributes a cost or resource when the source to be distributed and the destination that receives the distribution are from different models.

    The rule is saved to the source model, and is said to push data to the destination model.

For more information, see the reference documentation for the ALLOCATE statement (PEL) statement.
