Strategic Workforce Planning Rules

Oracle Strategic Workforce Planning Cloud provides business rules to calculate values in the application.

To see all the rules in the application, from the Home page, click Rules.

To run a rule from within a form, either click Actions and then the rule or right-click in a data cell. The available rules depend on the context.

About Strategic Workforce Planning rules:

  • Calculate Demand—Run this rule after you enter demand driver information to see the impact on demand FTE.

  • Calculate Supply—Run this rule after you enter supply driver information to see the impact on supply FTE.

  • Process Loaded Strategic Workforce Data—Run this rule after your import new data from HCM to compute headcount projections for Strategic Workforce Planning. Running this rule sets the Headcount to 1 and the Partial Payment Factor to 100% for every employee unless you've loaded different values at the processing month. This rule copies the data to the necessary periods in the planning year range.

    Best Practice Recommendations:

    • Don't run Process Loaded Strategic Workforce Data and the Workforce Module's Process Loaded Data rules at the same time.

    • You can run the rules Process Loaded Strategic Workforce Data and the Workforce Module's Process Loaded data for multiple entities at a time by selecting the parent entity under Total Entity. Oracle recommends that for performance reasons, you run multiple instances of rules by selecting different children under Total Entity instead of running rules for all entities in one pass.
