M:N) can be represented using ERDs. The use of ERDs allows you to create and evaluate simple logical design. The 1:M relationship is most easily incorporated in a good design; just make sure that the primary key of the “1” is included in the table of the “many.” K e y associative entity attribute domain bridge entity candidate key closure composite entity composite key data dictionary dependent determinant determination domain entity integrity equijoin flags T e r m s foreign key (FK) full.

Rectangle. (See Figure 4.1.) Because the Chen representation consumes more space, software vendors have adopted the Crow’s Foot attribute display.

As shown in Figure 4.1,.

Procedures. Building an ERD usually involves the following activities: • Create a detailed narrative of the organization’s description of operations. • Identify the business rules based on the description of operations. • Identify the main entities and relationships from the business rules. • Develop the initial ERD. • Identify the attributes and primary keys that adequately describe the entities. • Revise and review the ERD.
