Sun modelling is a technique for requirement gathering for a multidimensional data warehouse modelling. I have used or read about many different DW modelling techniques, however none is quite as simple and elegant as Sun Modelling. Sun Modelling was designed by Prof Mark Whitehorn (Dundee University). I won’t go into the details of how you execute a sun model today, however I will write about this in the future.
For the moment I have tried to simplify the process of building a sun model in visio. You can download a visio stencil which contains the main elements required to make a Sun Model. Also included is a sample visio document.
