Integrated with Activity Analyzer.
Modeling tools work with any project.
Treat activity drivers as fixed, linear variable or non-linear variable.
Recalculate activity drivers based on changes in cost object outputs.
Treat resources as fixed, variable or step variable.
Evaluate capacity and identify activities that exceed capacity.
Recalculate resources based on changes to driver volumes.
Save the results of any project as a scenario.
Restore any project from any scenario.
Compare scenarios online or in reports.
Compare combinations of scenarios online for user-defined period analysis.
Create budget period scenarios.
Save actual results as a scenario.
Compare actual vs. budget results.
Divide an annual budget into periodic budgets.
Combine periodic budgets into an annual budget.
Query scenario data with any ODBC compliant reporting tool.
Business Analyzer provides a sophisticated modeling environment that can generate quick "what-if" scenarios as well as complete activity-based budgets. Because it's seamlessly integrated with Activity Analyzer, any project can be used as the basis for activity-based planning and budgeting.
Business Analyzer makes it easy to run scenarios and measure how certain changes impact costs and profitability. Tools are available to adjust employee and expense resources for external economic factors like merit wage increases and inflation, recalculate activity driver volumes based on changes in product mix, evaluate capacity constraints and calculate projected resource requirements.
The results of each modeling exercise can be saved as a scenario and on-line inquiry screens let you compare scenarios or a range of scenarios.
Activity-based budgets can be constructed and saved in budget period scenarios. An annual budget can be automatically divided into periodic (monthly, quarterly etc.) budgets or periodic budgets can be compiled into an annual budget. Actual vs. budget resource, activity and product/customer costs can be compared within any period as well as across periods.
