Q:  

Where can I find a case study on the data warehousing lifecycle? I'll be building a cube in a star schema within the pharmaceuticals industry domain.

A:  

Sid Adelman's Answer: Business Intelligence Roadmap: The Complete Project Lifecycle for Decision-Support Applications by Larissa Moss and Shaku Atre addresses most everything related to data warehousing lifecycle issues.

Chuck Kelley's Answer: While it is not specifically for the pharmaceuticals industry, I would look at Ralph Kimballs' books - The Data Warehouse Toolkit and The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit.

Joe Oates' Answer: I don't know of what use a case study would be. I think that you would profit from reading The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit by Ralph Kimball. It provides the novice with an explanation of all of the aspects of building a data warehouse or data mart.
