1. In either the Measure Explorer, the Indicators tab or on the Objective Chart; click the key indicator.

2. Click the Analysis tab.

3. In the Target Threshold section, click the Edit button.

4. The Indicator Target Thresholds dialogue is displayed.

Indicator Type defintions (where green is the most desirable color):

: the more the better

: the less the better

: middle range is best

: outer ranges are best

5. Using the radio buttons, select the Indicator Type.

6. Enter the key indicator threshold values (as rational numbers). The threshold value fields accept numbers with up to 13 digits, including up to 4 digits after the decimal place. Both positive and negative numbers are accepted in the threshold value fields.

For example in the indicator type case selected; the values entered could be a threshold range of the number of open incidents reported. Fewer incidents reported are better than more incidents.

Only threshold values that respect the ordering of values will be accepted. That is, a number cannot be entered as a higher ordinal value than another number with a higher numerical value. For example, threshold that indicate increasing values from 20 to 10 will not be accepted by the EPC Measure module, and the OK button will be grayed out until acceptable values are entered.

In all cases, the values indicated are optimistic. That means the boundary values are included in the better of the two categories. For the example given, that means:

  • Red: Greater than 20 open incidents is critical.
  • Yellow: Between 11 and 20 open incidents is a caution that the situation requires ongoing attention.
  • Green: 10 or less incidents indicates the situation is acceptable.

7. Once the values for the indicator boundaries are set, click on OK to save them.

8. In the Unit section, enter the threshold units.
