The title of the KPI/KRI. This will be a hyperlink and upon clicking will navigate the user to the KPI/KRI details area in Camms.Strategy if you have Camms.Strategy 


Responsible Officer

Select from the pre-defined ‘STAFF’ records in the drop down list. The person selected here will be the one that is responsible for the KPI/KRI. 



Unit of measurement for the KPI/KRI. 

Enter a unit of measurement by clicking on the drop down list ‘Unit’ and select the most suitable option.

Examples include number, percentage, days, and currency. This is the ‘Y’ axis of the KPI graph.

Note: Not Applicable for Camms.Risk standalone users.



The Period of the KPI/KRI on which it is being reported on. 

Select a period which indicates how often you want to measure this indicator.

For example, is it Monthly, Quarterly or Annually? It is important that this is chosen correctly in the first instance as it cannot be modified once created.

Note: Not Applicable for Camms.Risk standalone users.



The method of aggregation for the KPI/KRI. 

Choose your aggregation method from the available options: cumulative, normal and average.

  • Cumulative will result in the system summing up values based on the time frames selected.

  • Normal will return the figure for the last closing reporting period within the selected time frame.

  • Average will display data as an average of the period of analysis.

IMPORTANT: If you have changed the KPI aggregation at any time after setting it up, you will need to re-save the targets and actuals tab (re-save the current data) in order for the calculations to be refreshed and reflect correctly within other screens/reports, etc.


Calculation Method

The method of performance calculation for the KPI/KRI.

The calculation method for the KPI determines the rules behind the traffic light reporting. You can choose Less is Better, More is Better or Goal Post.

KPI Calculations

The below table explains how the calculations are reflected in traffic lights, which uses different colours to denote the performance.


Time Horizon 

The Time Horizon dropdown lets you choose how the KPI graphs and values are displayed.

This is an optional field which can be activated by CAMMS if requested as part of your Scoping Day. There are three options: YTD, Period and Rolling. If not activated, the Time Horizon will default to Period.

There are three options YTD, Period and Rolling.

  1. YTD will always show beginning of the financial year to Date To chosen, regardless of Date From selected.
    Example 1: YTD KPI; Period - Monthly, Aggregation - Cumulative

If Date From = 1/7/08 and Date To = 30/11/08 the calculation would ignore Date From (as it is a YTD KPI), and therefore calculate it as July+Aug+Sept+Oct+Nov.

2. Period will always show the period Date From and Date To.
Example 2: Period KPI; Period - Monthly, Aggregation - Cumulative

If Date From = 1/8/08 and Date To = 30/11/08, the calculation would be just for those months (August + September+ October+ November)

3. Rolling is a time period for the KPI for when it cumulates or averages, e.g. 5 month cumulative KPI would display as follows:   

Period 6 shows the sum of period 2 to period 6 (5 periods)
