This is mainly for retailers, but I encourage anyone to answer. We are about to reengineer our implementation for market basket data. The current design uses a denormalized basket detail table (hence with a lot of redundancy).
PI is basket_id. So the PI has been chosen to optimise join access, for the very important affinity analyses (equi-join on basket_id).
The questions are:
1) Does anyone use a normalized model - that is a basket_header table and a basket_detail table?
2) If so, what is the PI for the header and detail table?
3) Does anyone use PPI for this/these table? (If normalized we could choose to include transaction_date on the detail-table, using this as partition-column)
4) Has anyone succeeded in choosing a PI suited for star-joins =96 e.g. (product_code,transaction_date)? I guess that would have to be complemented by a SJI with PI= basket_id, to help affinity analysis
