A data model, called the entity-relationship model, is proposed. This model incorporates some of the important semantic information in the real world. A special diagramatic technique is introduced as a tool for data base design. An example of data base design and description using the model and the diagramatic technique is given. Some implications on data integrity, information retrieval, and data manipulation are discussed.The entity-relationship model can be used as a basis for unification of… Expand
The entity-relationship model: a basis for the enterprise view of data
TLDR
This paper discusses the use of the entity-relationship approach in describing and maintaining the enterprise view of data and fundamental operations for changing the enterprise schema. Expand
A Generic Entity-Relationship Model
TLDR
A general framework allowing the specification, comparison and conversion of most information and data models currently proposed for Information System design, be they at the conceptual or at the DBMS levels is put forward. Expand
A logical design methodology for relational databases using the extended entity-relationship model
TLDR
A database design methodology is defined for the design of large relational databases that produces database designs that are not only accurate representations of reality, but flexible enough to accommodate future processing requirements. Expand
Using the entity-relationship model to teach the relational model
TLDR
This paper advocates reversing this order of presentation so as to be in line with the database development cycle, and taking advantage of this sequence to improve teaching the relational model. Expand
SIM: a database system based on the semantic data model
TLDR
The key modeling features of SIM, the architecture of the system and its implementation considerations are described, including those for specifying generalization hierarchies modeled by directed acyclic graphs, interobject relationships and integrity constraints. Expand
A Semantic Data Model for Integration of Data and KnowledgeMaurice
In this paper we present the Data and Knowledge Model (DK-model) that integrates the representation of data and certain types of knowledge in a semantic data model. The ER model is used as a basisExpand
Data models
TLDR
Future database systems can be expected to offer the high level of abstraction of object-orientation along with the relative efficiency and uniformity of the relational model. Expand
Principles of the Concept-Oriented Data Model
In the paper a new approach to data representation and manipulation is described, which is called the concept-oriented data model (CODM). It is supposed that items represent data units, which areExpand
A graphical data manipulation language for an extended entity-relationship model
TLDR
A user can formulate database queries and updates graphically, by manipulating schema diagrams, using an extended ER model incorporating various forms of generalization and specialization, including subset, union and partition relationships. Expand
The Composite Data Model: A Unified Approach for Combining and Querying Multiple Data Models
TLDR
This paper combines the characteristics of three fundamental data models in order to represent their semantics in a common framework, called the Composite Data Model, which facilitates combinations of these three model structures to be represented jointly in a single schema, thus providing more expressive and natural queries over them.
