The goal of this assignment is to create a star schema for a data warehouse. The data warehouse is for the National Hospital Council. Analysts are trying to detect trends in patient deaths that occurred at hospitals. Management wants to know if the number of deaths by certain diseases are increasing or decreasing over time. In addition management wants to know patient death trends by hospital and doctor. 1. Reporting in the data warehouse must be possible by cause of death. The number of deaths by each cause by month over time is required. This information must by reported by hospital and by doctor also. 2. Here is the database schema for the online transaction database. You can assume an extraction process (ETL) exists that will go through the online transaction database and create the necessary data for whatever star schema you design. You do not need to create this ETL process. 3. Create the appropriate dimension table(s) and fact table(s) for the data warehouse. 4. Underline the primary key column(s) in each table and italicize the foreign key column(s) in each table unless you use Microsoft Access. See the information below if you use Access. 5. Put your name in the top right corner of the document unless you use Access. You do not need to add your name if you use Access. This is part of the assignment and is one of the things I grade. 6. Create your schema using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Microsoft Access, or OpenOffice Writer. Name your file star_schema. The correct file name is part of the assignment and is one of the things I grade. Check with your instructor for approval before using any other application for this assignment. Here is an example of how your solution should look if you are you using these specific tools: Word (view, download), PowerPoint (view, download), Access (view,download), Writer (view, download). This example is for a sales data warehouse and is for demonstration of the assignment format only. Your assignment is not for a sales data warehouse and will not necessarily have table content like these. You can download the samples and change them for this assignment if you think this will make the assignment easier for you. Remember to change the file name if you download and use one of these files. Here is a video (8:47 min, .wmv) that shows you how to set up the database relationships window in Access. It is this window that displays the schema necessary for this assignment.
