The PerformancePoint Decomposition Tree is an analytics tool that dashboard individuals can utilize to perform root-cause analysis. Dashboard users can see how individual members in a group contribute to the whole. In a Decomposition Tree, members are ranked from biggest to least, or from least to greatest. The Decomposition Tree enables individuals to decay, or assess, a group to see its specific members and how they can be ranked according to a chosen measure, such as by sales quantities. The Decomposition Tree serves for understanding why a specific value in a report or a scorecard is exactly what it is. Nonetheless, dashboard users can not export a Decomposition Tree to Excel or PowerPoint like they can with some other kinds of reports, such as scorecards or analytic charts or grids. In addition, dashboard individuals can not conserve their analysis that they did using the Decomposition Tree.
As a dashboard author, you do not produce the Decomposition Tree by utilizing PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer. In addition, you can not display a Decomposition Tree as a top-level report view that is always displayed in a dashboard together with other reports. Instead, dashboard users open the Decomposition Tree from a report in a dashboard that is deployed to SharePoint Server 2013.
To open and make use of the Decomposition Tree, dashboard users should have Silverlight 3 or Silverlight 4 installed on their computer. Also know that depending on how a scorecard or an analytic view is set up, dashboard users might be not able to open the Decomposition Tree. For instance, if a dashboard individual right-clicks a report or scorecard value that utilizes a calculated member or a background product, the Decomposition Tree option may not be readily available.
Dashboard individuals would usually use a Decomposition Tree to see how a single value in a report or a scorecard can be crashed into its contributing members. The Decomposition Tree immediately sorts results and uses an inline Pareto graph to the data. Therefore, dashboard users can quickly see the greatest contributors to a specific report value. Dashboard individuals can likewise see trends across individual members that add to a total value. When dashboard users start to make use of the Decomposition Tree, they normally start with one bar, which is a decomposition node, found on the left side of the display.
