Project #72455 - business idea for database

 IT 240 Assignment Five 

Date Due: Sunday, Jun. 7thth by 11:58 PM 

Points: 30 

Objective: Apply your knowledge of relational databases to describe a situation (miniworld) that would benefit from a database implementation to store and retrieve data; specify requirements and design fundamentals. 

Choose a business with which you are familiar. Write a paper to describe a function of that business that is suitable for a database; one that you could design and implement. 

Possible ideas are: 

• Library book lending system 

• Airline reservation system for a regional carrier 

• Car rental agency, tracking customers and vehicles 

• Tracking the art work and artists in a museum or art gallery 

 

The business may not be one that we discussed in class or is in the textbook; i.e. no database to track movies, sailboat leases, gardening and yard maintenance, buying and selling of antiques, classes and enrollments, or employees working on projects. 

In your paper, should 

• describe the business situation 

• the reason for a database 

• who will be using the database 

• Information about what will be stored in the database. Describe in terms of entities, attributes and relationships. 

 

Be specific, to the point, and include appropriate business rules. For example, a business rule for an enrollment database would be “each student may enroll in many classes and each class may have many students enrolled in it”. 

The description should translate into at least 6 different entities which are related to each other in interesting ways. You should have both one-to-many and many-to-many (or one-to-many and many-to-one with associative entity) relationships. You should use Part One of the Database Project as an example. 

Deliverables: 2 

 

1. If you want me to review your business idea, send me an email by midnight on Thursday, Jun. 4th, that contains a short description of your business idea. I will review your idea and let you know if I think this is appropriate for a database implementation. 

2. Your paper should be at least 350 words but no more than 450 (approximately 1 to 1-1/2 pages). It is due on Sunday, Jun. 7th by 11:58 PM. Submit the paper by uploading it to the Dropbox in D2L. Make sure you include your name on the document.
