Comparing values to target values

Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to compare achieved lead times to target lead times. These target values come from a database and can differ per year.
My sample PBIX-file can be downloaded via the link at the bottom of this post.

DIM_Targets:

The idea is to visualize the data in the report as follows:

Blue are columns from DIM_Maintenance, 'Lead time' is a calculated column based on StartDate and EndDate.

Red are my two measures to fetch the target value from DIM_Targets, for the corresponding year of the StartDate. However, my measure picks the MAX target, so for the bottom 2 rows the targets now say 5 where they should say 4, as 4 is the target value for 2023.
'Achieved' is when Lead time <= Target value, else 'Not achieved'.

 

Model:

2 questions:

1) The targets could be used for DIM_Maintenance and DIM_Customer. Is this model a good setup for using targets?

2) How to show the right target value (Target ID = T1) in the 'Target (days)' column? In such a way that the calculated column or measure can also be used in a slicer, to filter e.g. only 'Achieved'.

Please find my sample PBIX-file here:

Thanks!

Thank you for your suggestion. I now added a link to the sample file at the bottom of my initial post.

Here is the measure used as a visual filter

I also modified the data model a bit.  Targets are not really a dimension table, at least how I understand your business premise.

Thanks @lbendlin for looking into it.  I understand that the measure Target achieved can be added in the side bar filters, but for users I'd prefer to add it in a slicer if possible. Although this is a nice-to-have.

 

The more important question is how to find the right target.
The target for %MaintenanceKey 840 is 4 instead of 5 (because start date year = 2023). What would be a measure to find the target where the target year equals the start date year?
