The KPI chart displays the values that were captured in the KPI value section. All the values take into consideration the unit of measures display factor; chart value = captured value * UoM display factor.
The dates on the chart correspond to the date selected on the right summary area; the selected date will be the last date shown.
The summary section is calculated based on the selected performance period; change the performance period in the Chart options panel; this can be found next to the Download button.
The status of the KPI is calculated based on the calculated Trend of the KPI; this is calculated on the captured baseline vs default target value. If no target was captured in the KPI, the default target value is used in the calculation.
In order for the status to be calculated, an Actual value for the performance period is required; no actual value will display in grey with N/A variance.
An actual value was captured and performance is better than the target, resulting in a positive variance calculated. For example, an upward trending KPI with a target of 90 and a captured actual of 100 will result in a variance of 10.
An actual value was captured and performance is below target, resulting in a negative variance calculated. For example, an upward trending KPI with a target of 100 and a captured actual of 90 will result in a variance of -10.
