The Cumulative Benefits report displays either a Run Rate or Cash Benefit Target line depending on the report type filter(highlighted below):
Please note the Annualized Benefit filter(Highlighted above) plays a major role is the values displays both Target(line) and Actual(bar), when checked it will display the target value as captured on the Pipeline section displayed of the Menu below:
When the Annualized Benefit flag is not checked the Targets are calculated as follows also taking account that PIPware treats all target values captured on the Pipeline section as Annualized.
PIPware depends on the following parameters to calculate the target for a month, i.e.
AnnualDays = Calculate the number of days in the year from the start date of the month. In most cases, this will result in 365, except if there is a leap year. So for example, if the start date of the month is 1 Feb 2019, it will then calculate the number of days between 1 Feb and 31 Jan which will be 365. However, for 1 March 2019, it will be 366 days (1 March 2019 - 29 Feb 2020).
MonthDays = Calculate the number of days in the month from the start date to the end date of the month. The start and end dates for the month depends on the dates set in the Default Calendar (Admin > Calendars). For example for Feb 2020, the number of days will be 29 (1 Feb 2020 - 29 Feb 2020).
When calculating the number of days, it only takes into account the working days (Admin > Site > Working Days). It also excludes any Site unavailability (Admin > Site > Unavailability). If the working days are set to 7 days a week and there is no site unavailability loaded.
The target for the month is then calculated as follows:
MonthTarget = AnnualTarget / AnnualDays * MonthDays
