The easiest and most manageable way is to create an SSIS package. There is an 'Analysis Services Processing Task' which allows you to choose specific dimensions or cubes to be updated.

This task can then be scheduled using Windows Scheduler.

Thanks for your help.  I ended up figuring out how to deploy the package to SQL Server here:

Once deployed, you need to create a SQL Server Agent job with one step of Type "SQL Server Integration Services Package" with the appropriate values.
