We are actively engaged in utilizing AF to standardize multiple calculations and actively moving them from Performance Equations in the process.
For one area, we have approximately 1500 elements with a common template; within the template there are 18 analyses.
And end user, who defined the calculations for a set of these analyses, determined today his calculation was wrong - in 4 different places.
The conversation this morning went along the lines of, "I think I caused a big problem... how hard is this to fix?"
My response after looking at it, "We have to update 4 sets of calculations - once. Because they are in templates, changing it once results in all of the affected elements being updated."
His response, and I quote, "AF is great. I don't know if you realized it yet, but it is"
Templates have been updated.
Next task? Delete the old data year-to-date and back fill the calculations.
So.. big shout out to Stephen Kwan and crew for a job well done.
