How does Panaya determine usage?

The Usage field relates to the ERP system usage period, i.e. how often the object is used in the extracted usage time frame:

Frequently Usedthe top 20% of all used objects under a specific module
Normally Usedthe middle 60% of all used objects
Rarely Used the bottom 20% of all used objects
UnusedThere is no record of the object in the ERP usage collection sources.
Unknown Panaya cannot determine precisely if the objects were used or not. Usually these would be objects for which your ERP does not collect and store Usage information, therefore by default it is Unknown if they are used or not.

"Panaya will determine if an object has been Frequently, Normally or Rarely used by comparing each entry level object relative to the other used objects within a given module.  

If the object is in the top 20% of usage compared to other objects usage in its module then we will label it ‘Frequently Used’.  If it is in the lower 20% of usage compared to other objects in its module then we will label it ‘Rarely Used’. Those in the middle are labelled ‘Normally Used’.  

If an object was never used in production over the course of all our accumulated historical usage data then we will label it as ‘Unused’.  Panaya will classify the usage as‘ Unknown’ in cases where it was not possible to determine the usage level (e.g. SQL Queries). Programs usage is determined based on the usage level of the entry level objects they are connected to."
