OLAP technology is extending the analytical capabilities of business managers and researchers by allowing them to manipulate their data models across many dimensions. A Group Support Systems (GSS) OLAP model is presented which permits the GSS researcher to organize the data into 20 or more dimensions. The OLAP model permits "drilling" down to the author level with nested cross-tab analysis.
