Understand relationships between your IBM TM1 objects

As your IBM TM1/ Planning Analytics application grows, your number of TM1 objects is likely to increase as well. It is good practice to clean up all objects which are not used anymore. In a complex TM1 model, knowing which TM1 objects can be deleted could be time consuming.

This article shows the different features of Pulse which will help you to understand quickly all relationships between your TM1 objects and to determine which objects are not relevant anymore.
