Diving on NetDiver Data

To perform a dive:

  1. On the Console, expand Models to view the individual cBase or model names and dimensions.

    Console Models label.

  2. If necessary, expand the cBase or model that you want to dive on.

    The Console displays a list of categories (optional) and dimensions. A down-arrow to the left of a dimension name indicates that the dimension is diveable.

    Expanded model example.

  3. Click the dimension that you want to dive on (this is the initial dive).

    Dimension details appear in the dive window. This example shows a dive on the Supplier dimension. This is reflected in the Console History and the column heading in the dive window.

  4. To perform the next-level dive, select an item in the dive window by clicking on it.

    In this example, Brandevor USA is selected. NOTE: Alternatively, if you select an item using a double-click, the Console refreshes to display DimCounts specific to that supplier.

    The Supplier, Brandover USA, selected in the dive window.

  5. In the Console, click a diveable dimension.

    Dimension details specific to the item clicked in the previous step appear in a new dive window. This example shows a dive on the Product dimension. Note that the data on this dive is specific to the previous dive (Brandover USA supplier).

    The Totals row reflects the numbers for the specified product.

    Totals for a dive on supplier and product.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 as needed.

NOTE: Each time that you dive on a dimension, a new dive window layer is added to the display. This dive window is a filtered view of the data based on the previous dives. Because it is the most recent or complete subset of data, it is considered to be the active dive window.
