CP112 Global Entities
Learn about CP112 global entities
CP112 uses two types of entities, GLOBAL ENTITIES and DATA MODEL ENTITIES. DATA MODEL ENTITIES are those entities defined and used in order to model the business processes, programmes, projects, tasks and any other entity that is involved in one of the system stages (DESIGN, IMPLEMENT, OPERATE). GLOBAL ENTITIES are those entities that can be used anywhere inside de platform in order to provide common grounds and reference for the DATA MODEL ENTITIES.
CP112 uses the following GLOBAL ENTITIES:
- Organisation: the organisational structure/chart on which the DATA MODEL ENTITIES are applicable
- Risks: the list of risks that are applicable for the DATA MODEL ENTITIES
- Commercial: suppliers and clients that are in a commercial relation with the organisation
All GLOBAL ENTITIES can be used anywhere inside the platform when working with the DATA MODEL ENTITIES. Click the button below to find out more about how to work with the DATA MODEL ENTITIES within the CP112 sections.
When the data model entity details dialog is open, you will notice that, in all cases, on the "Details" tab there is a dropdown list named "Owning Org Entity". When click on the dropdown, all organisational units are shown and one of them can be selected. Note that "Owning Org Entity" is the organisational unit that is responsible/owns that entity (programme, project, task, asset or others). This ownership is different from the information that can be filled in the field "Owner" of the same dialog/tab. "Owner" refers the user that is responsible to operate the entity within CP112 platform.
When the data model entity details dialog is open, you will notice that, in most of the cases, there is a "Risks" tab where the risks associated with the entity can be defined. Once defined, the risks are stored in a global pool of risks and can be used in other sections of CP112.
When the data model entity details dialog is open, you will notice that, in all cases, there is a "Relationship" tab available. This tab offers the information about which other entities (global or data model entities) are connected in a non parent-child relation with the selected data model entity. The commercial partners connected to the selected entity are shown in the "Operation" sub-section of this tab.
Global entities can be accessed from the global sections of CP112. All global sections are accessible from the main menu (main menu -> Organisation and main menu -> Risk, main menu -> Organisation and main menu -> Commercial). Inside the sections, the global entities can be processed in the same way as the data model entities.
The global entities for the Organisation are accessible through main menu -> Organisation. These entities allow building the model of the organisation that uses CP112 and are the organisational units (departments, functions, teams and others). CP112 offers administration features that allows the definition of the types of organisational units, these features are available for the administrators. The organisational structure can be created by setting the right parent-child relations between these entities. Use the "Analytics&Reports" feature available inside the section in order to visualise the organisational structure in a graphical way.
The global entities for Risks are accessible through main menu -> Risk. Inside the Risk section of CP112 you can define the risks and connect them to different data model entities. However, for a better control of the relations between the entities, it is recommended that this connections with the data model entities to be made when visualising/editing a specific data model entity (through the dedicated multi-tab entity dialog). Use the Heat Map and Graph features of the Risk section in order to get a global overview of the risks situation across the organisation.
The global entities for Commercial are accessible through main menu -> Commercial. All commercial partners of the organisation can be defined inside this section. These partners are divided in two subsections, SUPPLIERS and CLIENTS. Use the reporting features of the Commercial section in order to obtain a global view on the commercial situation at the level of the organisation. The relations/connections with the data model entities can be made from this section or from the data model entities sections (DESIGN, IMPLEMENT, OPERATE). For a better control of the relationships, it is recommended that the connections to be set from the specific data model entities sections.
