PMF gives you a lot of flexibility in dealing with measurements. It supports quick one-off measurements you might add when prototyping a new scorecard. Additionally, it allows you to design deeply loaded measures that span multiple time periods.
PMF supports measure pooling, which enables you to create measures independent of specific scorecards. You can create a measure and link it to every scorecard in your organization, or unlink a measure and hold it for later use. Linked measures are controlled by data access security, which allows users to view only measures to which they have been granted access (for example, through an optional Organization dimension).
You can manually add one or more measures to PMF and quickly connect them to objectives in your system. For more information, see Working With Measures.
If you set up your scorecard using the Scorecard Wizard, and you selected objectives from the list, PMF automatically created measures for you. You can use the Measures panel button to edit these measures or convert them to loadable measures. After you have loaded measures with the loader, use the Edit Measure panel to edit their properties.
The Edit Measure panel opens, where you can edit any of the settings, as shown in the following image.
For more information on this panel, see Working With Measures.
To modify the list of measures linked to an objective, perform the following steps.
The Link/Unlink Measures tab opens, as shown in the following image.
You can link more than one measure by selecting all of the applicable check boxes.
Select the Unlink? check box for the measure.
Your changes are reflected under Measures Currently Linked.
It is strongly recommended that you adjust the weighting of measures after changing linking relationships. If you do not adjust weighting, metric totals may be inaccurate.
