As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Understanding Targets & Percentage Reached.
Apologies if this has been answered before, we are new to PMF and are only begining to get to grips with it all.

We are strugling to understand how the targets and especially 'percentage reached' elements of PMF work.

Given this example

Dimension is Gender

Measure data has the following fields

(*Where denominator_col is a default 1 for each row)

When creating the measure, we have linked this to gender dimension using GENDER_CODE.

There are 10 records where 6 female and 4 male.

When setting up the measure,

When displaying the output through a pie chart, grouped by dimension 'gender', we expect to see Male = 40% and Female = 60%

This is working fine, however the percentage reached is showing 100% for both Male and Female. Which appears to be dividing the actual / actual.

Either that or it is the (Male actual = 4)/ (Male denominator =4) which results in 100%.

Any tips on how we can fix this such that the percentage reached is 4 out of 10 and 6 out of 10?

Thank you.

Percent reached compares actual to target.

If you have a ratio or percent type measure, numerator value and denominator value will of course involve division (constitute a fraction) to ensure aggregation works.

But this is not how percent reached is calculated.

There are many postings about this question here on the forum. Try a search there on 'percent reached' and it will bear much fruit.

Hi Bob,
We have opened a case to handle this one as the boys have tried various suggestions after searching on 'percent reached' but to no avail. Here is the link:-
