6. MDE P&L


Last step is to create a simple P&L hierarchy. All you need are these four nodes, link them to our appropriate submodels and join them using plus sign and you are done. Here are the formulas:

Node fx

'Gross Profit' + 'OPEX'.'OPEX'

Gross Profit

'Revenue' + 'COGS'


'Product'.'Revenue Product' + 'Service'.'Revenue Services'


'Product'.'COGS Product' + 'Service'.'COGS Services'

If you have done everything right, the final model should look like this:

As a last check, you can use the data preview button on the profit node to check if all of your formulas function the way they should:

Correct result

You are now able to create complex models on your own. We suggest you use your new model to create a workspace with 2-3 scenarios and few dashboards to understand the power of what you just created.

Good point to start learning about Workspaces is the Visualizing Data section of our documentation.
