Workplace Scenario

As a software engineer you will often be required to design information systems based on a client’s requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that the information system has the ability to store the required data in an efficient manner without any duplication. The ER diagram is an industry standard and provides a visual representation of the database design. The ER diagram is the focal point of communication with the client and should be easy to read, modify and capture all the constraints to be represented in the database.
