Scenario Overview Header

You must have administrator rights to access this feature.

This feature may not be available in every package. Not sure if you have this feature or you want to learn more about it? Send us a message at support@cartegraph.com.

Viewing a scenario in Scenario Builder displays the same Overview header on the Results tab and Details tab. The items displayed in the Overview header show key information from the setup of the scenario and by running a scenario.

Scenario Type: The scenario type selected on the scenario displays Budget Limitation, OCI Target, or Unlimited.

Scenario Target

  • If the Scenario Type is Budget Limitation, this area displays the total budget amount of the scenario.
  • If the Scenario Type is OCI Target, this area displays the ending OCI target value of the scenario.
  • If the Scenario Type is Unlimited, this area displays as NA.

Years: This displays the number of years the scenario addresses.

Last Run: This displays the date and time the scenario was last run.

Status: This displays the status of the current project.

Total Cost: This displays the total cost of the project.

Total Activities: This displays how many activities have taken place in the current project.

Assets Affected: This displays the number of assets that have activities suggested during the Plan Years. This is the Total Assets Included field.

Cost Per Plan Year: A chart visually displays the cost associated with the suggested activities for each Plan Year in the scenario. Hover over each vertical bar to see a tool tip of the Plan Year and Cost.

Calculated Fields

Some of the fields in the Overview Header are calculated based on other fields. Each calculation for the corresponding fields is defined below.

Total Surplus: Subtract the total cost from the total budget. This value only applies to a scenario type of budget limitation. NA displays for other budget types.

Average Activities per Year: Displays the Total Activities Included field divided by the Number of Years field.

Percent of Total Assets: Divide the Total Assets Included field by the Assets in Scenario field. Then multiply the result by 100.

Network Ending OCI: This is the average estimated OCI of the network's assets on the scenario's end date.

Network Beginning OCI: This is the average estimated OCI of the network's assets on the scenario's start date.

Network Net OCI Gain: Subtract the network beginning estimated OCI from the network ending estimated OCI. NA displays if either value cannot be calculated.

If the Adjust OCI Using field is used when creating the scenario, this will be a weighted average, with the selected field having more impact in the calculation. For more information, see Estimated OCI Calculations Within Scenarios.

Scenario Ending OCI: This the average estimated OCI of a scenario's assets on the scenario's end date.

Scenario Beginning OCI: This is the average estimated OCI of a scenario's assets on the scenario's start date.

Scenario Net OCI Gain: Subtract the scenario beginning estimated OCI from the scenario ending estimated OCI. NA displays if either value cannot be calculated.

If the Adjust OCI Using field is used when creating the scenario, this will be a weighted average, with the selected field having more impact in the calculation. For more information, see Estimated OCI Calculations Within Scenarios.

NA and Dash (–) Values

In some situations, a value of NA or dash (–) display in some overview header fields.

If the scenario has not been run, the following fields display as a dash (–):

  • Last Run
  • Status
  • Total Cost
  • Total Surplus if  Budget Type is Budget Limitation
  • Total Activities
  • Average Activities Per Year
  • Assets Affected
  • Percent of Total Assets
  • Scenario Ending OCI
  • Scenario Beginning OCI
  • Scenario Net OCI Gain
  • Network Ending OCI
  • Network Beginning OCI
  • Network Net OCI Gain

The following fields display as NA regardless of the status of the scenario:

  • Scenario Target if Scenario Type is Unlimited
  • Total Surplus if Scenario Type is Unlimited or OCI Target

The following fields display as NA after the scenario successfully runs:

  • Ending OCI: This value cannot be calculated. (For example, there are no activities suggested on any assets so their condition is not improved.)
  • Beginning OCI: This value cannot be calculated. (For example, there are no assets in the scenario because the Filter is too specific.)
  • Net OCI Gain: Either Ending OCI or Beginning OCI cannot be calculated.
