Data warehousing and online analytical processing (OLAP) technologies have become growing interest areas in recent years. Specific issues such as conceptual modeling, schemes translation from operational systems, physical design, etc. have been widely treated. A few methodologies covering the entire development cycle have also been proposed, but there is still not a general, accepted, complete methodology for data warehouse design. In this work we present a multidimensional data warehouse development methodology integrated within a traditional software development methodology.
