Part II—Course Project
This part of the assignment is a detailed
project designed to help you learn the modeling of business requirements
and understand the physical implementation of logical business models
through the use of E-R models.
Through each week's project, you will be
adding to the course project. You will be assigned tasks each week,
which you will complete and submit as directed.
Course Project Part 1—Database Planning
For this week, imagine that you have been hired by a company to build a database for it and complete the following tasks:
- Describe your idea of the database.
- This can be a business problem or a hobby you are interested in—for example, an airline reservation system.
- Outline the database you would like to create.
- Outline the SDLC. Include the following subcategories:
- Strategy and analysis for a business or an idea you plan to develop
- Analysis of the current system:
- What does the company have?
- What business projections does it have?
- Integration with other systems—plan how the current system can be integrated with other systems
- Documentation and communication—describe how this vital part will be accomplished
- Design for changes—prepare a plan for the future
- Reusable resources—do not redo work; identify what the company has in place that you can use
(This is the best part of the project—you create everything!)
Note: Whatever you create is fiction and the above-mentioned six items will need to be addressed in the final document.
After you complete the lab and course
project, collate the information from both in a 3- to 4-page report in a
Microsoft Word document.
