The model structure allows for measures to be “contained” by other measures, creating a “parent/child” hierarchy.

Simply “drag” a measure in the model over an existing measure to set its parent:

The best practice is to contain aggregated measures under their source measure. Contained measures’ naming convention can be simplified to adapt to the contained naming structure (e.g. Total Production.DTD).

The same concept can be used to contain measures used in calculations. This will allow for ease of fault finding and calculation verification.
