About SVP Algorithms

The following two algorithms are available in the SVP module:

  • Percentage change. Refers to the type of algorithm to be used during the specified SVP action. That is, it modifies the source value by a percentage as it populates the target proportionately. Period definition is not required when using %Change.
  • Trended Volume Period. Compares Trend Volume Period with Source Period and extrapolates by percentage from Source to Target. Algorithm period definition is a required field. Table 12 shows settings for Source, Algorithm, Variance, and Target periods.
