Attribute dimensions are excellent tools for establishing descriptive capability of a dimension member and to then enable slice and dice capability by this attribute. For example, a project may have an attribute of a project manager as you would typically only have one project manager per project.

Gives the control to users to easily view & update • How? Our approach relies on automation using EPM Automate (extract and import)
