I am new to anaplan and stucked at one small requirement.
We are having two modules i.e. Module 1 - Product segment (Defined in List for different products) with transportation cost line item and Module 2 - Transportation cost for Each segment in line items (input). Need to know how can i link the transportation cost of each segment to module 1?
What an awesome question! And way to go for choosing Anaplan! It's a great platform.to work with.
You have two options to help you link these two modules together but the key ingredient is that you MUST have a relationship defined somewhere between the product segment and the product cost. That relationship must contain a LIST formatted line item.
Option 1 is to manage the relationship in a system module. A system module, as part of DISCO, is usually a module that has one dimension and all the properties of that dimension. For you, each product segment will have a product cost associated with it. This, of course, assumes that each product segment has one, and only one, product cost. The product cost defined MUST be a list formatted line item.
Option 2 is to create a special system module that contains two dimensions. Some will call this a Calculation module (transformation) also part of DISCO, but the result is the same. This allows you to intersect all product segments with all product costs. If this is what you need all you need to do is create a module with both dimensions and one line item that contains the cost value.
