Decomposition Tree in PerformancePoint Sever 2010

Decompostion Tree is a new feature available in PerformancePoint 2010 and it is a very useful and smart feature for BI applications.

But there are few tricks need to be followed to have the decomposition tree in a scorecard.
  • You need to create KPIs from PerformancePoint. If you import KPIs from Analysis Sevices Cube, Decomposition Tree will not work.
  • Need to provide values from a Measure. If it is provided from a MDX expression Decomposition Tree will not work.
  • Therefore if you need to do some calculations for the KPI, create a Calculated Member which having the required calculation and set the Parent Hierarchy of the calculated member as Measures.
  • Then you can use that calculated member as a measure to create the required KPI and the Decomposition Tree will be available for it.
  • Calculation property for the Actual and the Target should be Data value.
  • Also to enable the Decomposition Tree feature in the Scorecard, Silverlight need to be installed in the client machine.
  • Also when I added those created KPIs by creating a blank scorecard from PerformancePoint, Decomposition Tree did not work. But when I created the scorecard by importing KPIs from analysis service and modified the KPIs as above, then the Decomposition Tree works fine.

  1. I was able to create a decomposition tree by predefining a KPI with analysis services as data source, then adding that to a blank scorecard. Note that the calculation property on the kpi actual and target should be data value, then it works fine.
