Definition

Definition should include
  • how a fact, also known as a measure, can support numeric operations such as simple arithmetic, statistical calculations, and simultaneous equations
  • how dimensions provide filtering, grouping, and labeling for individual, non-overlapping data elements
  • how they relate to multidimensional terminology terms (e.g., members, hierarchies, sparsity, data cube, star, constellation schemas).
