This is time dimension related and should normally be handled on the database side.

For SAP BW you would use a fiscal period definition to handle that and 4,4,5 is just one of the options.

If you have a straighforward relational data warehouse, this would be handled by a calendar/time dimension table.

In this table each day gets assigned to a specific period (business year/period/week) but also to a normal calendar variant (year/week/month).

Note that you must store the data on a calendar day level if you want to be able to cater both normal calendar and business calendar views (which you will need, since some business users will want to use a normal calendar view, whereas others want the financial views).

Good luck,
