Bottom-up database design is a difficult task for novice database designers and is particularly challenging to teach. To address the problem, two methods—textbook and cookbook—have been suggested. The textbook method describes the Codd’s normalization algorithm and data model visualization adopted by most textbooks. The cookbook method illustrates a simple and straightforward normalization algorithm and ER diagram mapping technique proposed by the authors. This paper describes the conceptual… Expand
DIAGRAMMATIC APPROACH FOR COMPLETE AUTOMATION OF RELATIONAL DATABASE NORMALIZATION AT CONCEPTUAL LEVEL
TLDR
A software Integrated Development Environment (IDE), called AER IDE, designed by extending the Graphical Editing Framework and Draw2d plug-in functionality of Eclipse is implemented, which allows the total and unconditional automation of relational database normalization up to a given normal form.

The Efficiency Examination of Teaching of Different Normalization Methods
TLDR
This work made a survey among engineer students how efficient could they execute the normalization with different methods and executed statistical and data mining examinations to decide whether any of the methods resulted significantly better solutions. Expand

Comparing a rule-based approach with a pattern-based approach at different levels of complexity of conceptual data modelling tasks
TLDR
The study recommends the rule-based approach for novice designers given the significantly better performance at two out of three complexity levels, and an interaction effect between treatment and task complexity. Expand
Data Analysis and Learning: An Experimental Study of Data Modeling Tools
TLDR
The results suggest that when given structured tasks, novices are able to learn rather quickly how to produce small, good quality models using either of the tools, and this has implications for data modeling training and for the development of data modeling tools. Expand
Modern Database Management

Reacting to the current business environment, Modern Database Management, 6/e addresses current issues in the market, such as Internet, data warehousing and object-orientation, to understand the role of database management within a business. Expand
Synthesizing third normal form relations from functional dependencies
TLDR
An effective procedure for performing a relational scheme synthesis is presented and the schema that results from this procedure is proved to be in Codd's third normal form and to contain the fewest possible number of relations. Expand
A relational model of data for large shared data banks
TLDR
A model based on n-ary relations, a normal form for data base relations, and the concept of a universal data sublanguage are introduced and certain operations on relations are discussed and applied to the problems of redundancy and consistency in the user's model. Expand
