We have recently delivered a comprehensive technical training program to a large commercial customer. In addition to customized instruction, this program includes extended training manuals, follow-up exercise sets with answer keys, and a custom training database instance loaded with training data.
Within the PeopleSoft Pension Administration product, business rule
parameters are the building blocks of the software implementation. Building a
parameter hierarchy is the cornerstone to the utility suite.
This populated utility allows a developer to quickly identify where a parameter is used. This is the most valuable tool in the collection. This allows a developer to avoid changing a parameter and having an unintended or negative impact on the system processes. It also allows a developer to find all the places a change needs to be made, or to trace a parameter with a known problem. It can also help you certify that it is safe to delete a parameter.
How does this utility work? The tool provides a process known as the parameter usage explosion. This process searches for all parameter references and stores them in a format accessible by other utility components and as a tree, accessible by the PeopleSoft tree manager. This process can be re-run after parameter updates are made to re-analyze the hierarchy.
