Where is cube designer?

This is a related question to this

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS-SQL-Server/Q_28508348.html

I want to:

Do you have measures that are not associated with the Brand dimension?  Check your 'Dimension Usage' tab in the cube designer.
If the measures are not associated with the dimension it won't matter what the filter is - it will effectively be ignored for those measures.

Where's the cube designer? This link also mentions cube designer and "Dimension Usage' but where is it? The cube is already designed. I even opened Solution Explorer in SSMS but I don't see the cube design.

From within you solution in solution explorer, navigate to the cube itself.  Cube Designer will be one of the tabs.

NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 1.5

With Office 365, it’s your data and your responsibility to protect it. NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 eliminates the risk of losing access to your Office 365 data.

You need to open the SSAS solution in BIDS.  You just have a few mdx queries open.  Here is a screenshot with an SSAS solution open and what your solution explorer and cube designer will look like.

Opening SASS solution in BIDS is not thru SSMS?

Correct. BIDS is completely separate from SSMS.

I don't think BIDS (what does it stand for?) is installed on this server. How can I check? what do I need to look for?

Business Intelligence Development Studio.  It should be in your SQL Server program group.
