    SAP thinks that 16 is enough, and so far after 7.5 years as BW consultant I have not seen this as a critical limitation. You should be fine with 16 (13 + 3 SAP defined)

    Kind regards

      Basically dimensions are created so that it works as index and retrieve data faster, and the same char can reside in one dimension...but there is a limit because if you increase the no. of dimensions..then the no. of joints will be high and query performence will be hampered while reading data from 16 dimensions are suggested by SAP for good query performence and sufficient Dimensions to assign char to it.

      Award points if helpfull.
