The project design process

When you create a project in MicroStrategy Developer, one of the connections you create is between the project and your data warehouse. In the project, you can then create schema objects based on the columns and tables in the warehouse. The diagram below shows this high-level view of data modeling, schema design and implementation, and project creation, which are each covered in the following chapters:

Notice that the project design process includes a feedback loop. Designing a project is very rarely a single, linear process. As projects are deployed and tested, new user requirements and project enhancements require modification to the initial project design. It is important to keep this in mind as you design your project and plan for the next phase of development.
