How to: Associations Between Models
An association is a logical relationship between two models in Planning Business Modeler: the source model and the destination model. When you create and run an association, you can move fact data from the source model to the destination model. You can also aggregate that data during the process, if you want.
Associations that move data are useful in a variety of scenarios. For example, you can create an association that contributes data from a smaller source model to a larger aggregate model. This enables you, for example, to run a staged consolidation, in which the consolidations from a separate model of a business division feed into a larger corporate model.
Analysts can also use an association to project data from an existing model into a separate model for "what-if" analysis.
