Data Warehouse systems can extract relevant information from a large volume of data. Since the purpose of this information is to facilitate the decision making, it's important to ensure Dependability of the system which delivers it. Thereby the dependability's requirements must be taken into account in the early stages of the development process of the Data Warehouse System (DWS). In this paper, the authors proposed to adapt the MDA (Model Driven Architecture) approach to model dependable DWS, by defining CIM (Computation Independent Model) and PIM (Platform Independent Model) of dependability's aspects.
