Building a scenario comparison

Scenarios are a powerful part of the Logica platform to enable more dynamic, real-time forecasting. Scenarios are designed for comparison: using different sets of input data but modeled on the same underlying logic. This can be used to forecast different scenarios for planning purposes or to compare forecasted values with actual historical values for the same time period.

Below is a simple model to illustrate the basics of scenario comparison in Logica.

The first scenario is the "Actuals" scenario, and contains the following values:

The second scenario is the "Budget" scenario, and contains the following values:

Scenario Comparison in the Table

To compare these two scenarios in the table:

  1. Open an existing view or create a new one.

  2. Open the Table Settings.

  3. Set the primary scenario to be "Actuals".

  4. Enable the comparison check box in the "Display Columns" section:

  5. Set the "Compare against" field to the "Budget" scenario. To display variance, check the Value and/or Percentage check boxes.

    1. By selecting the Value and Percentage options, the table will include the value and % difference between the values for each scenario.

For more information on comparisons in the table, see this article.

Scenario Comparison in the Chart

The chart inherits the comparison settings of the table automatically, and displays the values of each variable for each respective scenario:
