Subject Area Concepts
The Logical 03000 - Reporting - Macro View subject area includes a range of general reporting entity types. It is the one operational reporting subject area that contains some enterprise-level summaries as well as store-level summary information.
This subject area lists the different transaction summaries available in ARTS and ties them to the ReportingPeriod entity type. The ReportingPeriod entity type establishes the time interval covered by each summary entity type instance. The ReportingPeriod foreign key referenced by each reporting summary entity assigns it to a historical time interval which is what makes them history entities.
As described in the Operational Reporting topic, the summary entity types are tactically focused and mostly address store-level activity.
