Analysis Services (SSAS) Multidimensional Design Tips – Creating Dimensions

In the previous article, Analysis Services (SSAS) Multidimensional Design Tips – Data Source View and Cubes, we discussed best practices for SSAS Multidimensional cubes and data source views. In this article, we continue the series with design tips for creating dimensions as the subject. As with the previous article, most tips are suited for SSAS 2008 (most likely 2005 as well) to 2016 and later versions. Analysis Services Tabular is not covered in this article.

The best practices listed in this overview is a selection made by the author, as they are considered basic for a good dimension design. However, best practices are not carved in stone and sometimes you can deviate from them.
