Module with multiple dimentions
My company is now hiring an external consultant for anaplan model building. One thing I wanna understand more from the community is that when do we build different modules for calculations. So here is the original data
Let's say it's a table with Dimension ABCDE , and metrics FGHi
ABCDE could be list like Industry, Location, Company name
And the output is supposed to be pages where we have the aggregation of the metrics by different dimensions (or combination of dimentions)
Instead of building a module having all ABCDE dimentions together, the model builder is doing it in a duplicated way.
Her reason is that the dimeition of ABCDE in a module would **** up the model (10*10*10*10*10 cells at least and other cells in the base calculations)
However, this is going to make the maintenance of the dashboard very complicated. What's the best practice for these multi dimension summaries?
Also - when is a time we should put the dimension (ABCDE in this case) as a dimension vs as a line item (by referring to the list)
