Unit Introduction

    The core of SSA’s Configurable Enterprise Financials (CEF) is Configurable Enterprise

    Accounting (CEA). CEF and CEA replace World Class Financials (WCF) and BPCS

    General Ledger (GLD) respectively. CEA is a distributed logic approach to client/server

    development comprised of four products and two integration approaches.

    Unit Objectives

    At the end of this unit you will be able to:

    ? Identify the ATP and BPCS subsystem setup required to process transactions.

    ? Identify the steps required to process a subsystem transaction.

     Financial Interfaces 15-1 ? Explain the model resolution process.

    ? Discuss the use of hard-coded account values, macros, and advanced macros.

    Terminology

    Listed below are terms presented in this unit.

Client/Server version of the BPCS General Ledger. It is one of the Configurable

    four CEA products. Ledger (CLD)

    The basis for all journal entry activity in CEA. Events contain one Event

    or more models. Each model within an event sequence becomes a

    journal entry during Events Processing. CEA application creating journals for processing and integration Events Processing

    with subsystems.

    Process of combining like transactions into a single journal entry. Journal Grouping

    Program retrieving subsystem information during Advanced Macro

    Transaction Processing. A macro allows definition of the selection

    of account segments, amounts, and journal reference information

    based upon information available when the transaction is created.

    Macro names are entered on the model line during model setup.

    Defines the characteristics used to formulate a journal entry during Model

    Events Processing. A completely defined model will result in the

    desired credit and debit postings. Models support the use of macros

    retrieving subsystem transaction information before posting.

    Processes events, models, and macros to create and post journal Posting Engine

    entries. Allows users to create specific templates for processing

    individual transactions without modifying BPCS applications.

    User-defined code identifying the purpose of a particular transaction Reason Code

    and resulting in the resolution of an event. Process of summing two or more journal lines within a journal into Summarization

    one line based on matching accounts.

Advanced Transaction Processing (ATP)

    Advanced Transaction Processing is used to post journals created by BPCS subsystem

    transactions to the BPCS Configurable Ledger. It supports configurable transaction

    processing by allowing users to define the accounting treatment and processing without

    having to modify any BPCS applications. Transaction information is processed by a Posting

    Engine using three main CEA setup applications; events, models, and macros.

    The figure illustrates the ATP process.

CEA/ATP Setup Applications

    Prior to processing subsystem transactions, specific information should be defined in the

    seven CEA setup applications used by ATP. These applications are described on the

    following page.

    The figure illustrates CEA/ATP Setup Applications.

A combination of a macro and an alias. Defining advanced macros is Alias

    a two-step resolution process. Macros are defined as advanced from (Advanced

    the model window. Once defined, the macros will cross reference to Macro)

    an alias file and return the segment values defined in the alias file.

    Each Subsystem transaction utilizes an event linked to a reason code Event

    and subsystem program to post the resulting journal entry. Reason

    code and event combinations must be set up prior to processing

    subsystem transactions.

    The ledger is where the journal source is defined linking the Ledger

    subsystem transaction to the journal number assigned to a specific

    journal entry in the configurable ledger. The ledger application also allows the user to define how subsystem

    transaction information is summarized and which exchange rate to use

    when posting transactions to the configurable ledger.

    Models contain macros used to retrieve subsystem information for a Macro

    specific transaction from existing BPCS files. Each event contains one or more models. Models define the actual Model

    account segment information.

    The segments application allows the user to define how transaction Segment

    information is summarized. This information may be overridden at

    the ledger level.

    The Subsystem Determination Setup application identifies the event Subsystem

    used to process specific subsystem transactions. A reason code and Determination

    subsystem program are linked to an event.

BPCS Subsystem Transactions Setup

    Specific information should also be defined in the BPCS subsystems prior to processing a

    subsystem transaction. This information is described on the next page.
