A Named Set is a set of dimension members (usually a subset of dimension members) and is defined using MDX (a Multidimensional Expression). Often Named Sets are defined for improved usability by the end users and client applications. Apart from that, they can also be used for various calculations at the cube level. Similar to calculated members/measures, named sets are defined using a combination of cube/dimension data, arithmetic operators, numeric values, functions, etc. Some of the examples of Named Sets are top 50 customers, top 10 products, top 5 students, etc.
