Guidelines: You are to work in a group to design and create a database for the scenarios listed below. Activities: (a) List out the possible Business Rules (b) Identify all the entities and attributes from the given scenario. (c) Draw the E-R Diagram to show the relationship between the entities and attributes.

Instructions

(d) Describe the integrity & referential integrity in your data model (e) List the functional dependencies in your model. Find the normal forms of your relations. (f) You must use SQL statements to produce your data and load it into MYSQL. (g) Take an actual set of data from real life situations. (h) Implement your queries using SQL under the MYSQL environment. (i) Prepare the data dictionary, DDL and DML scripts of your execution sessions, and sample reports. Deliverables: 1. A written report containing the following items: • Business Rules • Integrity constraints and normalization • Entity-Relationship Diagram • Data dictionary, DDL and DML scripts • Queries and reports • Details about your contribution in this project. 2. Softcopy of the diagram and SQL scripts 3. Presentation of the database (ALL members -using power point slides) Assessment: • Business Rules. (5 marks) • Integrity constraints (10 marks) • Normalization (5 marks) • Entity-Relationship Diagram (20 marks) • Data dictionary, DDL and DML scripts (20 marks) • Queries and sample reports (20 marks) • Presentation (20 marks)

Scenarios:
University Project Management System The Information Technology Service Center of Intelligence University is building a database to store lecturer information on teaching, and research activities. The detailed information gathered is as below: • Professors have a Pno, a name, an age, a rank, and a research specialty. • Projects have a project number, a sponsor name (e.g. IRPA), a starting date, an ending date, and a budget.

• Graduate students have a Gno, a name, an age, and a degree program (e.g. MSc., Ph.D.). • Each professor must manage at least a project (known as the project’s principle investigator). • Each project is worked on by one or more professors (known as the project’s co-investigators). • Professors have to work on multiple projects. • Each project is worked on by one or more graduate students (known as the project’s research assistants). • When graduate students work on a project, multiple projects are acceptable, in which case they will have a supervisor for each project. • Departments have a department number, a department name, and a main office. • Departments have a professor (known as the chairman) who must run the department. • Professors work in one or more departments and for each department that they work in, a time percentage is associated with their job. • Graduate students require one major department in which they are working on their degree. • Each graduate student may have another, more senior graduate student (known as a student advisor) who advises him or her on what courses to take. Useful Queries: • List all the lecturers who are professors. • List all the professors that are NOT a project leader but have graduate students. • List all the graduate students, and their respective project name who work under a project leader. • List all the seniors who advise junior students. • List all the Professors who are involved in multiple projects. • List all the Lecturers and the respective Department that they are attached to and the time allocated for each allocated for each department. (Here 1 department has many Lecturer's and 1 lecturer from many department's) Note: Extra related queries will be given extra mark (but will not exceed the mark allocated maximum)
