Course description

Understand how calculation takes place within FCCS. Explore the multidimensional business rules and calculations scripts and understand the capabilities, features and syntax of how to perform calculation, translation and consolidation within FCCS.

This three-day course covers everything required to design, build and deploy effective calculations within FCCS applications. Learn about member formulas and when they should be used. Find out about the FCCS out-of-the-box calculation capabilities and understand how ‘seeded’ calculations can be modified to amend the standard consolidation process. Discover how calculation manager is used to manage calculations both within the graphical designer and script editor. Learn how to control calculation scope and how to build custom validation rules vs the automated validation on the balance sheet.

Explore the available calculation functions, the associated syntax and understand how to use templates to create reusable code snippets for efficient design of calculation rules. Find out about statutory consolidation rules and strings and how to deploy, duplicate and modify rule sets.

This course also investigates the development of efficient ad hoc ‘On Demand’ rules that add additional flexibility and run outside of the consolidation process.
