Lab Overview


You have been asked to create a database model using MS Visio Database Model Diagram Template. The purpose of this lab is to provide experience designing, with limited instructions, a simple database based on a list of data requirements and associated business rules.

You will then complete an MS Access database based on the model developed in Visio, creating the necessary tables and relationships.

Upon completing this Lab, you will be able to

  • create a new Visio file for database design;
  • using the data requirements and the business rules provided, develop a conceptual model (ERD), including attribute data types and required field lengths; and
  • create a new MS Access database based on the ERD.
