"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What are you trying to do? It doesn't look like ssas would be very useful for that data. Is there anything you want to aggregate or slice?

 fact table is usually measures (mostly additive) and links to dimensions - think of them as attributes of a fact. I can't see that this data would fit very well into that.

What sort of questions would the users want to ask?

Status looks like it could indicate an event (factless fact). There is an itemqty. Maybe a fact is a prouct or part of it being made?
