SQL 2005 Analysis Services KPI

SQL 2005 Analysis Services KPI

SQL 2005 Analysis Services KPI

So the KPI has a value and a goal field.  Let's say the value is sales growth and the goal would be looking at things like:  if we reached a sales growth of 20% then that is good, 10% is fair, negative is bad.  No problems.

Now my issue is that I will create this cube but I will install it on a number of different company servers.  Each company is going to have different goals.  One might say 20% is good, 10 % is fair.  Another might say 12% is good and 3% is fair.

Is is possible to code the KPI so that it gets the percentage threshhold number from say a data table rather than having them hard coded?  I really don't want to customize the KPI every time I install it as I will have to keep track of the customizations and then reinstall them if there is an update.
