10 Characteristics of a Good Data Model CharacteristicExplanation Pictorial A good data model should be an accurate graphical depiction of the entities and their relationships Rigorous and Specific A good data model should be specific with regard to the identification of all entities and their relationships and rigorous in the identification and specification of the attributes associated with each entity. Top-down Decomposable A good data model should be decomposable in the sense that the level of detail for each entity and its associated attributes can be investigated at various levels of detail or aggregation. Provide Focus A good data model should be focused on the data associated with a single system and contained within a single system boundary. Minimally Redundant A good data model will display minimal redundancy with regard to repeated entity types, data redundancy, and many-to-many relationships. Transparent The actual data and the physical structure of the database should be discernable from looking at the graphical data model. Easily Navigated A good data model should be laid out in an organized fashion to allow for the relationships among the entities to be easily followed. Predicts the Final System A good data model should be an accurate prediction of the physical implementation of the system.

16 Selecting a Primary Key 99XXX99XX Criteria for SelectionExplanation Stability Choose a candidate key that will not likely change its value over time. EXAMPLE:UNSTABLESTABLE NAME+ADDRESS EMPLOYEE_ID Non-Null Choose a candidate key that is always guaranteed to have a non-null value. EXAMPLE:POSSIBLE NULLNON-NULL PHONE_NO SSN Non-Informational Do not create intelligent keys that attempt to convey information via their structure. EXAMPLE:INFORMATIONALNON-INFORMATIONAL Location Color Shelf Class Code Code Code Code Simplicity Wherever feasible, consider using a single attribute primary key instead of a multi-attribute primary key. EXAMPLE:SINGLE ATTRIBUTEMULTI-ATTRIBUTE ITEM_NO+COLOR ITEM_CODE

17 Identifying Entities and Relationships Question CategoryDescription Determine System Entities Find out what types of people, business units, things, places, events, materials, or other organizations are associated with, or interact with, the system and about which data must be maintained. Identify Entity Attributes Identify the characteristics by which each entity is associated or identified with. Determine Entity Keys Identify the most appropriate characteristic for each entity that uniquely distinguishes an instance of that entity from all other instances of the same entity. Determine Relationships and Degrees Identify the various events, transactions, or other business activities that infer an association between entities. Determine Cardinalities and Optionalities Identify the circumstances under which each of the relationships can occur. This requires an investigation into the various business rules under which the organization operates and the constraints imposed on the events which occur within the business environment.

18 Three Normal Forms Normal FormDescription First Normal Form (1NF) A relation is in 1NF if it contains no repeating data elements. Second Normal Form (2NF) A relation is in 2NF if it is in 1NF and contains no partial functional dependencies. Third Normal Form (3NF) A relation is in 3NF if it is in 2NF and contains no transitive dependencies.
