Entity-Relationship Modeling: Historical Events, Future Trends, and Lessons Learned [chapter]

Peter Chen
2002 Software Pioneers  
Section 5 describes a possible reason for the author to come up with the ER modeling idea , that is, the author's Chinese culture heritage.  ...  This paper describes the historial developments of the ER model from the 70's to recent years. It starts with a discussion of the motivations and the environmental factors in the early days.  ...  In particular, he was particularly impressed by a common need of many organization to have a unified methodology for file structure and database design.  ...

Sensitivity of the physical database design to changes in underlying factors

Prashant Palvia
1988 Information & Management  
Such tenths would be of significant practical value in both the design of the initial physical database and its subsequent restructuring.  ...  Here we consider the sensitivity of the physical database design to underlying variables. Results were obtained by conducting controlled experiments in a laboratory setting.  ...  The total number of physical designs, using the abstract model, explode exponentially when the number of entities and relationships in the LDS is large.  ...

Transformation-Based Framework for the Evaluation and Improvement of Database Schemas [chapter]

Jonathan Lemaitre, Jean-Luc Hainaut
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We provide an overview of a framework based on the use of semantics-preserving transformations as a way to identify, compare and suggest improvement for the most significant best design practices.  ...  As for the application code, one way to improve the quality of the models is to ensure that they comply with best design practices.  ...  At the present time, we are parameterizing and validating the framework through practical case studies and with the help of a community of expert designers.  ...

The rapid application and database development (RADD) workbench — A comfortable database design tool [chapter]

Meike Albrecht, Margita Altus, Edith Buchholz, Antje Düsterhöft, Bernhard Thalheim
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a workbench for database design which supports designers efficiently and informally to achieve correct and efficient databases.  ...  A database designer has to use a high level of abstraction for mapping his real-world application onto an entity relationship model.  ...  In the system we use a special extension of the entity-relationship model, the Higherorder Entity-Relationship Model (HERM), which is used for representing structural, semantic and behavioural information  ...

A formal approach for designing CORBA-based applications

Alberto Coen-Porisini, Matteo Pradella, Matteo Rossi, Dino Mandrioli
2003 ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology  
The methodology and the associated language are presented by means of a case study derived from a real Supervision and Control System.  ...  This paper discusses a methodology to transform a formal specification written in TRIO into a high level design document written in an extension of TRIO, named TRIO/CORBA (TC).  ...  For the sake of readability whenever no ambiguity can arise, we refer to a CORBA Entity Class C as CORBA Entity C. The same convention is also used for the instances of the other meta-classes.  ...

Human Modelling and Design of Spatio-Temporal Queries on 3D Video Database [chapter]

Takashi Tomii, Kiril Salev, Sayaka Imai, Hiroshi Arisawa
1998 Visual Database Systems 4 (VDB4)  
Using RWDB, we designed the human body structures, motions in a work and events over them. As a result, it can evaluate various motions of workers and pursue the optimum design of works.  ...  This enables us to evaluate the posture and safety of workers based on the calculation of positions of spatial objects.  ...  Moreover, association is used for the definition of the component entity of an entity. For example, a part of a machine is a component that can exist under the existence of the machine.  ...

Tools and transformations---rigorous and otherwise---for practical database design

Arnon Rosenthal, David Reiner
1994 ACM Transactions on Database Systems  
We describe the tools and theory of a comprehensive system for database design, and show how they work together to support the design process.  ...  Each of these data models must be representable within the database design system, either as a separate model or as a special case of a more general model. We took the latter approach.  ...  The Role of Database Theory in Practical Database Design Theory affects database design practice mostly by being embodied in design systems.  ...
