Model Schema Documentation Platform

Hi all,

 

Just finished my Anaplan training and starting the FP&A case study. 

 

I am drafting the model schema and would like to do it electronically. Any best practice for which platform to use to document the "model schema"?

 

I was going to use excel...

 

Thanks, 

Brett

Re: Model Schema Documentation Platform

Hello,

 

I document my schemas as simple flowcharts & avoid crowding them very much (for example, I don't indicate the dimensions in the schema, just the subject & key objectives)

 

Details are placed in supporting materials (like a bulleted list)

 

I use an online flowcharting tool, there are many tools out there.  PPT works well also

 

cheers!

Re: Model Schema Documentation Platform

You probably already found something but there are lots of choices:

 

I've used excel and visio historically but prefer the newer online tools like Gliffy and Lucid Charts.
