In this paper we discuss what current multidimensional design approaches provide and which are their major flaws. Our contribution lays in a comprehensive framework that does not focus on how these approaches work but what they do provide for usage in real data warehouse projects. So that, we do not aim at comparing current approaches but set up a framework (based on four criteria: the role played by enduser requirements and data sources, the degree of automation achieved and the quality of the
