    SN-008590 ***Alert Note***

    Incorrect risk factor values possible from scenario when transformation
    method has multiple output variables

    Product: Risk Dimensions
    Component: RISK DIMENSIONS
    Priority: ALERT

      Incorrect risk factor values may result from a Scenario Analysis or a
      Scenario Simulation if all of the following are true:

      1. A transformation method has more than one output variable.
      2. The scenario specifies the value of one or more input variables for
      such a transformation method.
      3. The scenario specifies the value of two or more output variables of
      such a transformation method.
      4. The scenario does not specify the value of at least one output
      variable of such a transformation method.

      If these conditions simultaneously hold, then one or more of the
      scenario-specified output variables in (3) above will be incorrect.

      To circumvent the problem, create a separate transformation method for
      each output variable.
