Measures as special dimension table

Post  Kraft on Fri Oct 16, 2009 3:03 pm

I am modeing a data warehouse for a manufacturing industry. The issue I had is there are too many measures for one particular business process. Say for a work centre, we have 20 measures, and each measure might have different unit of measures. Is is a good idea to create a dimension table say DimMeasures to hold these measures instead of creating many columns in facts table?

Thanks!

No, that doesn't sound like a good idea. But maybe if you increase the dimensionality there may be few measures for each context.
