Monitoring systems, increasingly used in dairy herds, require carefully designed databases. Database design involves modeling, which is generally not treated in papers dealing with such monitoring systems. We present general rules of data modeling based on the analysis of the semantic structure of information and their application to the construction of five basic data models. Such models are not database structures; a single model can be translated into different database structures. Modeling… CONTINUE READING
