Maybe you can show us what your loop looks like?
In general, if you can do it using a query to line up all the rows of the loop, then run a query using FOR XML, it will be a lot faster.

Please find the bow script that I use to create partitions in XMLA Batch

BEGIN
create table #tmpAccounT (Accounts_Key int,startdatekey int,enddatekey int,partitionname varchar(50))

 as partitionname  FROM dim_Accounts

DECLARE @partitionname as VARCHAR(50)
DECLARE @AccountsKey INT
DECLARE @StartDateKey INT
