Model Driven Engineering, Multidimensional Canonical Partitioning, Multidimensional Design Pattern, Model Transformation.
Following the principle of everything is object, software development engineering has moved towards the principle of everything is model, through Model Driven Engineering (MDE). Its implementation is based on models and their successive transformations, which allow starting from the requirements specification to the code’s implementation. This engineering is used in the development of information systems, including Decision-Support Systems (DSS). Here we use MDE to propose an DSS development approach, using the Multidimensional Canonical Partitioning (MCP) design approach and a design pattern. We also use model’s transformation in order to obtain not only implementation codes, but also data warehouse feeds.
