Business Dimensional Model

The Business Dimensional Model™ is a vehicle to document conformed dimensions with business attributes and their relationships in end user terms. This conceptual multi-dimensional model easily translates into both logical and physical database designs. The Business Dimensional Model™ identifies:

Dimensionality of the business
Business attributes within each dimension
Attribute relationships within each dimension
Hierarchical structures (drill paths)
Required business measures or facts
OLAP requirements
Potential pre-stored aggregates
