In this recipe, we will use the TBC hierarchies to set up a cube schema and Essbase model. The cube schema is an object or foundation structure that specifies the hierarchies, measures, and defines data bindings of an Essbase cube. You can also build an Essbase model when you build a cube schema. The Essbase model is a star schema developed from the relational model. The Essbase models will be used to specify the Essbase cubes' properties, attributes, alias, transformations, and drill-through reports.
