A cube is defined by its measures and the dimensions it uses. You can specify measures and dimensions at different levels and on different elements in the Application Object Tree (AOT) using the Business Intelligence properties that appear in the Properties sheet. You use a perspective to identify the tables and views that contain the dimension attributes and measures for a cube. This section describes how to create an analysis cube in Microsoft Dynamics AX.
