Abstract

Software design is a complex activity. A successful designer requires knowledge and training in specific design techniques combined with practical experience. Designing a dimensional model is not an exception to this challenge. We present Dimensional Design Patterns (DDPs) that can be used for designing dimensional models. We present a metamodel of the DDP and show how to integrate them into Kimball’s dimensional modeling design process.
