BIS 245 WEEK 1 LAB 1 INTRODUCTION TO MS VISIO AND MS ACCESS

A. Lab # : BSBA BIS 245A-1
B. Lab 1 of 7 : Introduction to MS Visio and MS Access
C. Lab Overview--Scenario/Summary
TCOs:
1. Given a business situation in which managers require information from a database, determine, analyze and classify that information so that reports can be designed to meet the requirements.
2. Given a situation containing entities, business rules, and data requirements, create the conceptual model of the database using a database modeling tool.

Scenario:
You have been asked to create two conceptual database models using MS Visio Database Model Diagram Template. The purpose of this lab is to have you gain familiarity with the various modeling tools needed to create a conceptual model (entity relationship diagram) of a database. You will create two conceptual models.
You will then open an existing Access database to explore database objects and to experiment with simple data manipulation using filters and sorts and to begin elementary work with relationships.
Upon completing this lab, you will be able to
1. relying on detailed instructions, create a simple conceptual model for a two-table database using MS Visio;
2. use experience gained in creating the first model to construct a similar conceptual model without the instructions; and
3. download an existing Microsoft Access database file. Open the database; find and identify different database objects in this database.

 Page 2 of 5
b. if you are using Citrix, click on Microsoft Office 2010 Applications folder to start Visio.
 Lab:
 Step 1: Identify and create the entities
 a. Open a new blank Database Model Diagram. If you need assitance with this, refer to the Week 1 Lab Instructions. Be sure that all options are set consistent to those used in previous weeks so that you generate your model in Crows Foot notation.
 b. Save the file as YourName_Lab4A.vsd.
 c. Based on the information provided below, create the necessary entities for the Catering by Caren database. If you need assistance to create the entities, refer to Labs from Weeks 1 and 2.
 Catering by Caren
 Catering by Caren is an upscale catering company focusing on full, four-course gourmet dinners for groups from two to forty. Owner/chef James Caren is wonderful in the kitchen, but has become overwhelmed with the business side of running his rapidly growing operation. You have been hired as his business manager, and you’ve decided to computerize information on the engagements.
 Chef Caren is excited about this project and has provided you with the following information. He doesn’t know databases nearly as well as he knows haute cuisine, so the data requirements are not well-organized, nor is data in its smallest parts. He has noted whether the menu items are appetizers, salads, main courses, or desserts. He has also provided a list of the information he keeps on each customer and each booking.
 By talking with Chef Caren, you feel you have enough information on the company’s business rules to understand the relationships between the data. Chef Caren is particularly concerned that you capture the exact requirements for the menu for each engagement. For instance, if 20 people are to be served, he wants to know how many want the vegetarian main course, the Kosher meals, and so forth.
 At this point, you are going to use the following information to put together an entity relationship diagram that you will then use with Chef Caren to verify that you have accurately captured the requirements.

 NOTE: You may find it helpful to consider the business rules in Step 4 in creating your entities.
 Step 2: Identify and create attributes (fields)
 NOTE: Because you are creating your diagram in Visio, it will be easier to create the attributes prior to the relationships.
 a. Refer to the data requirements from Step 1 of this lab. Ifyouhavenotalready
 Page 4 of 5
created the attributes (fields) in your ERD, add them at this time.
 b. Save your file and continue to Step 3.
 Step 3: Identify and designate the keys
 a. Detemine whether an attribute exists in each table that will satisfy the requirements of a primary key. If no appropriate field exists, create a field for this purpose.
 b. Check the Primary Key property for the field(s) in each table using the Visio column properties.
 Step 4: Identify the relationships
 a. Using the information below on the business rules for Catering by Caren, create the relationships between the entities created in Steps 1 and 2.
 b. Notice that, where Many-to-Many relationships exist, you will need to create associative entities. If you are not sure of the process to create relationships in Visio, refer to the Labs for Weeks 1 and 2. You created an associative entity in Week 2.
 c. For any associative entities created, enter necessary fields. You may also need to designate or create a primary key. NOTE: If the relationship is mandatory (must have at least one…) you will go to the relationship Miscellaneous property and change it from Zero to Many to One to Many.

Step 1: Identify the entities and relationships.
a. Over the past four weeks, you have created ERDs based on information
provided. This week, you will complete the ERD being sure to normalize it to
3NF (third normal form). Normalization is the systematic application of rules
designed to eliminate redundancy from the database. Data in previous weeks
was, to some extent, normalized for you. This week, it is not. An abbreviated
list of the data requirements follows.

d. An ER Matrix helps define both the entities and the relationships between the
entities. Using the partially completed ER Matrix below as a guide, complete
the matrix.
Hint: You should end up with four entities.
1. List each entity both across and down. 
2. Determine whether a relationship exists between entities and define that
relationship with a verb phrase. (NOTE: The entity with the greatest
number of related entities is usually the center of the ER diagram.)
3. Identify minimum (Optional or Mandatory) and maximum (only one, or one
or more).Page 3 of 5

e. Save the completed matrix to submit as part of your lab.
Step 2: Create the initial ERD based on the matrix.
a. Open a new blank Database Model Diagram in Visio. If you need assitance with
this, refer to the Week 1 Lab Instructions. Be sure that all options are set
consistent to those used in previous weeks so that you generate your model in
Crow’s Foot notation.
b. One of the issues in denormalized data is that it can result in many-to-many
relationships that are not compatible with the relational database. Visio does
not allow creation of a many-to-many relationship because of this
incompatibility. Therefore, for any many-to-many relationships in your data,
you will need to create two one-to-many relationships. See the example
