Structural waterfall of Helsana Group The waterfall illustrates the value ratios of the results for the fiscal year 2011 of Helsana Group, without deviating from the context of a strict earnings statement. The aim is to convey a correct feeling for the results and thus for the business of Helsana without omitting important items.
Structure with deviation values This example is borrowed from the application scenario of a navigable web interface. In dynamic interfaces, a special role is played by the correct, context-dependent positioning of all elements such as the dynamic, space-dependent labeling, the positioning of highlighting elements, as well as the observance of uniform surface measures.
