CIS111 Database Development Project 1
For this project you will be creating a database for a construction/retail Company. The company wants to automate some services, so you are tasked to architect the database.

b. The submission must have the following:
i. A cover sheet with your name, and your database name.
ii. The project requirements below.
c. The assignment is due no later than the date identified in the Moodle announcement. You cannot start on project 2 until this project has been completed. A minimum sore of a 60 is required on this project before you can start project 2.
2. The project requirements:
a. Determine the entities (tables) that will be needed. You can use the sheet similar to the sheet we used in class. A blank sheet is available on Moodle. You will need around 7 – 10 tables to properly complete this project.
b. For each table, list all of the data elements that will be needed. Make sure all data elements are broken down to its smallest component, but not more, or less, than 3rd normal form. . Having one or two attributes for a table will not work. You must have enough attributes to adequately describe the entity.
c. The data dictionary that outlines ALL of your data elements. A blank excel spreadsheet is available on Moodle.
d. Create an entity relationship diagram for your database. No hand drawn diagrams will be accepted. There are several software programs that can assist. You can use Microsoft Visio, Oracle Data Modeler, or Erwin Data Modeler. DO NOT use Microsoft SQL server for project 1, as your project will not be accepted.
e. Identify primary/foreign keys for the tables.

The project contents, drawing and documentation are due per Moodle announcement. You cannot start project 2 without submitting project 1 and received a grade over 60%. You can submit earlier for review, but keep in mind the review submissions need to be soon enough so I have several days to evaluate and send back so you can make changes prior to the due date. Sending the project for my review does not change the required due date. This is an individual project. Similar submission will receive a zero.
