Data Warehouse (DWH) systems allow to analyze business objects relevant to an enterprise organization (e.g., orders or customers). Analysts are interested in the states of these business objects: A customer is either a potential customer, a ﬁrst time customer, a regular customer or a past customer; purchase orders may be pending or fullﬁlled. Business objects and their states can be distributed over many parts of the DWH, and appear in measures, dimension attributes, levels, etc.
Surprisingly, this knowledge - how business objects and their states are represented in the DWH - is not made explicit in existing conceptual models. We identify a need to make this relationship more accessible. We introduce the UML Proﬁle for Representing Business Object States in a DWH. It makes the relationship between the business objects and the DWH conceptually visible. The UML Proﬁle is applied to an example.
