The Manage Associations app allows you to create associations between KPIs or OPIs. Two types of association are available: supporting or conflicting.
You define a supporting association between two performance indicators whenever a change in one affects the other in the same direction (for example, the Manufacturing Cost KPI supports the Net Cost of Goods Sold KPI). You define a conflicting association if the two performance indicators influence each other negatively (for example, the Net Cost KPI impacts negatively on and the Net Sales KPI).
You can use these associations later in the Configure KPI Drill-Down app to add the tile visualizations of associated evaluations to the mini charts.
Select an active KPI or OPI and then choose Add Association. Search for the KPI or OPI to which you want to associate this entity.
