OLAP cubes may be built in a wizard driven environment with no coding required. You don't necessarily need to build a model in order to build the cube. The wizards will guide you through creating metrics, dimensions and hierarchies.

Documentation on OLAP is available here:

When building OLAP cubes, you could use a star schema as input, which often is preferred from a performance standpoint.

There is no modelling tool in SAS. For modelling you could use tools like MS Visio or CA ERwin.

Once created, they can be imported/generated in SAS. For populating the dimensional model/star schema, the most appropriate tool (if available) is Data Integration Studio.
