Compare Actual Data with Plan Data

Hello Everyone,

TL;DR How to correctly architect my data structure to compare Actual Activity vs. Planned/Modeled Activity.

I have a datamodel where I have 4 tables,  DriverProfile, FactTable, MasterCalendar and the DriverModel.  The DriverModel table contains how many miles a driver is expected to drive on a certain day.  The actual miles the driver drives are on the FactTable.  My goal is to compare the Actual Miles driven to the DriverModel miles.

As of now, I have a bar chart that looks like this.

The dimension is:  =If( [Driver Model Id] = [Driver Profile Id], [Driver Model Id] )

The measures are: Sum([Driver Model Miles])



This gives me the result I'm expecting.  But when I use real data, it gets painfully slow, and the CPU hits 90+% any time the chart is rendered.  I believe it has to do with the way my measure is "If( [Driver Model Id] = [Driver Profile Id], [Driver Model Id] )"

Is there a better way to do this? I'm not able to figure out how to arrive at the same result, and getting a bigger machine (4 core, 16GB currently) is out of the question.

I've attached my script and the QVF.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Compare Actual Data with Plan Data

Concatenate Both Tables(With Actual & Planned Data), use a flag for planned & Actual data
