The objective of this assignment is to give you some practice in data modeling.
Due: 11 Mar 2003
For the next few assignments, we will be building a database for a small online store named SnarkDreams Shisha Exports. The store sells hookahs (Arabian waterpipes), shisha (the flavored tobacco smoked in a hookah), and coals. A description of the user needs and current business forms is here at User Needs.
For this assignment, use the user needs description to create three data models:
Be sure your diagrams are in an accessible, cross-platform format, such as HTML, GIF or JPEG images, or PDF. Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents are also acceptable, though not as preferred. Printed or written paper documents are very cool as they are more convenient to grade; you can give them to me in class or at my office.
If you need some general modeling/flowcharting software, I recommend RFFlow. It is very powerful and flexible. You can save charts in a number of formats, including GIF. The demo is fully-functional except that charts are limited in size. You can get around this restriction if you care to save pieces of your diagram and paste them together in an image-manipulation program.
Let me know if you have any questions.
