Occasionally I am asked about where to find better documentation for the BI-Apps data sources. If you need this, then this is available via the Metalink note (ID 1274680.1), that provides a link to an Excel spreadsheet documenting the data “lineage” of the information found in the BI Apps data warehouse: it is almost 8 MB, in a zip file online link.
Also you may be interested in the Metalink note (ID 846917.1) that contains a link to the Business Analytics Metric Reference Guide. This contains information on the KPIs and on how certain variables are calculated.
Hope this helps you in your BI-Apps engagements.
Short-cuts to the download links, so you don’t have to read the entire Metalink notes:
