Is582 week 2 i lab 2 data modeling using visio

  1. 1. IS582 Week 2 iLab 2 Data Modeling UsingVisioClick this link to get the tutorial: 2 :Data Modeling Using Visio (100 Points)(See Syllabus "Due Dates for Assignments & Exams" for due dates.)NOTE: Visio 2010 is required for this project. Please ensure you can run Visio 2010 via Citrix orby having it installed on your computer.iLAB OVERVIEWScenario and SummaryIn this assignment, you will learn to create a physical database model in Visio from businessrequirements. To complete this assignment, you will need to be able to run Visio 2010, eitherthrough Citrix or installed on your workstation or laptop.DeliverablesName your Visio file using Lab2_, your first initial, and your last name (e.g., Lab2_JSmith.vsd).Create and save your database model in your Visio file.iLAB STEPSSTEP 1Read the following business requirements closely to determine the entities and relationshipsneeded to fulfill the requirements. The nouns in the paragraph will tell you the entities that willbe needed. The verbs in the paragraph will help you determine the relationships between theentities.Muscles Health Club Database Requirements:The Muscles Health Club needs a database to keep track of its members, their personal trainers,and the fitness classes they are taking. Employees can act as personal trainers for members.However, only certified employees can act as personal trainers. A member can work with onlyone personal trainer at a time. Members can take multiple fitness classes. Fitness classes aretaught by employees who can teach multiple classes. Fitness classes are taught in one of the
  2. 2. classrooms at one of Muscles Health Clubs several locations. Each fitness classroom is designedfor a different type of class (e.g., spinning, aerobics, water aerobics, weight training, etc.). It isnecessary to track what fitness classes are being held in each of the different Muscles HealthClub locations.STEP 2# Run Visio 2010 either via Citrix or on your workstation.# Click on the Software and Database Template group in the main window.# Double-click on the Database Model Diagram Template to open a new file.# Save the file with a name containing Lab2_, your first initial, and your last name as the filename (e.g., Lab2_JSmith.accdb). You will need to click the computer icon in the Save Aswindow to see the different drives. Be sure to save the file to a local drive so it will be on yourworkstation.STEP 3Add an entity for each entity you identified in the requirements.# Drag the entity icon onto the drawing area in Visio.# In the Database Properties window, add a physical name to identify it.STEP 4For each entity, create a list of attributes you think would be useful to describe the entity.# Select an entity in the drawing area of Visio.# In the Database Properties window, select the Columns category.# Use the table to add your attributes to the selected entities.# Select one of the attributes to be the primary key (PK).STEP 5Set the diagram to use crows feet notation.# On the Database tab, in the Manage group, click Display Options.# In the Database Document Option dialog, select the Relationship tab.
  3. 3. # Select the Crows Feet check box, and then click OK.STEP 6Draw relationships between your entities.# Drag the relationship icon onto a blank part of the drawing area.# Connect the two ends to each of the two entities in the relationship. The parent entity musthave a PK defined. The entity will be outlined in bold red lines when it connects to one end ofthe relationship.STEP 7Set the cardinality of your relationships.# Select a relationship line in the drawing area that is connecting two entities.# In the Database Properties window, select the miscellaneous category.# Select the cardinality for the selected relationship.STEP 8When you are done, save the file on your local hard drive and upload it to the Course ProjectDrop box. Your file should have the following filename format: Lab2_FirstInitialLastName.vsd.Submit your assignment to the Drop box located on the silver tab at the top of this page.(See Syllabus "Due Dates for Assignments & Exams" for due dates.)Grading RubricsEach query is worth 10 points. Points for each query will be awarded according to the followingrubrics.# 20 Points: Visio drawing: E-R model is provided as a Visio diagram.# 20 Points: Entities: A minimum of four entities is present# 20 Points: Attributes: There are more than two attributes per entity; in most cases there shouldbe several.# 20 Points: Relationships: A minimum of three relationships is present.# 20 Points: Cardinality is specified on each relationship with crows foot notation.
