When embarking on any new project or learning experience, it is essential that you have a strong foundation of understanding constructed from key concepts and parameters. As you begin your work with databases and database design, you should develop a firm understanding of key concepts and parameters that are critical to the foundation of all database design.

In this Discussion, you examine these key fundamental principles of database design.

  • Review information concerning cardinalities and consider what they are, how they are developed, and their role in database design.
  • Review information concerning business rules, what they represent, and how they are reflected in the entity relationship diagrams.
  • Review the conceptual model (Figure Q4.5) on page 150 of your text,  Coronel, C. & Morris, S. (2015). Database systems: Design, implementation, and management (11th ed.).
