A "Fixed Percentage" Banding Scenario creates bands by starting a defined Point Total (generally at or slightly below your lowest or lowest expected evaluated point total) and creating a new band every x percentage until all evaluated Job Classes are within a band. In this band type, bands will increase in size based on the starting point total of each band, for example 20% of 100 is smaller than 20% of 600 (20 points vs 120 points)
Lowest Evaluated Job Class Point Total (or selected starting value): 150 points
Percentage Width: 20%
Hence if your highest evaluated point total is 625 points you will 8 bands based on the following table:
How To Create:
After clicking the + Add Banding Scenario button start by naming your banding scenario in the Name field. The Name is a simple field that is used so you can recognize the banding scenario in the future after it has been created. Next select "Fixed Percentage" from the drop down menu under the "Banding Type" header.
The pop-up window will now customize to the Fixed Percentage band type.
In the "Starting Point Value" field enter in the starting value as described above.
In the "Band Size as Percentage (%)" field enter the percent size of the each band (in a percentage, ie 20 not .2) as described above.
Once completed select click the ADD button.
Your scenario will now appear in the Banding Table and you view it by clicking the DETAIL button in the row beside the newly created scenario.
