  • PCM is an application that computes values through Activity Based Costing. A model is a container of data and information where users do their analysis.
  • PCM models store the data on the database and the computed results on the application server.
  • On the database, most models do not require vast amounts of space.
  • On the application server, models can approach 100GB if large(10^23 members).
  • PCM uses a single database Oracle or MS-SQL. It does not run on ‘old school SAP‘.
  • PCM can export to many different formats. PCM gets data three ways, manually, data bridge and data loader.
  • The smallest possible production PCM setup is one database server and one application server each in their own distinct box. Power users connect via fat client. End users can connect via fat or web client. Most problems are server based.
