Creating a Project Using Architect

Creating a Project Using Architect

MicroStrategy includes a project design tool known as Architect. Architect allows you to define all the required components of your project from a centralized interface. Architect also provides a visual representation of your project as you create it, which helps to provide an intuitive workflow.

Architect is provided in addition to the Project Creation Assistant, which is a wizard-style tool that steps you through the process of creating a project. Rather than providing a step-by-step process to create a project, Architect allows you to see your project take shape as you create it. For a comparison of Architect and the Project Creation Assistant, see Architect versus Project Creation Assistant.

Architect provides a wide range of project creation and modification tasks, which are covered in the sections of this chapter listed below:

Creating and modifying projects
Adding, removing, and administering tables
Creating and modifying facts
Creating and modifying attributes
Defining attribute relationships
Creating and modifying user hierarchies
