DBM 380 Week 2 Individual Assignment Sparkle Diamonds Project
Instructions: Start working on your Learning Team Database and Presentation outlined above with delivery in Week Four. Begin by analyzing the requirements provided. Identify the tables, fields, field attributes, and table relationships required. Build a 1-page Entity Relationship Diagram that models the required tables and relationships using Microsoft® Visio®, Lucidchart, or another software tool of your choice. The table design and relationships must support the following functionality:
- Customers - Each customer is assigned a unique customer number but may have multiple locations to ship to. The sales team needs to be able to select the customer and the location for preparing sales orders. • Inventory Table - The sales team will want to query the inventory to find diamonds that meet the following specifications of their customers:
- Cost - what SD has paid for the stone
- Price - what SD will sell the stone for
Carat - weight
- Clarity - clarity scale for diamonds offered are IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2*
- Cut - cut scale for diamonds offered are Excellent, Very Good, Good
- Color - color scale for diamond offered are D, E, F, G, H, I, J*
- Order Table - The sales team will want to prepare a sales order for existing customers and sell only diamonds that are in inventory. The DBMS must be designed such that customers can purchase multiple stones on one sales order. *Diamond Scale Reference*
- IF- Internally Flawless
- VVS1 - Very, very slightly included (pavilion)
- VVS2 - Very, very slightly included (crown)
- VS1 - Very slightly included (under 10X magnification)
- VS2 - Very slightly included (to the naked eye)
- D, E, F - Colorless - color between D, E, and F diamonds can be detected only by a gemologist in side by side comparisons, and rarely by the untrained eye
- G, H, I, J, K - Near Colorless - diamonds color rated by a gemologist Write a 175- to 350-word Status Update for your Learning Team using Microsoft® Word describing the work you have completed this week. The Status Update is a simple Microsoft® Word document that lets the instructor know what the team has accomplished during the week.
DBM 380 Week 2 Learning Team Assignment Database Design and ERD Creation
Instructions: The following assignment is based on the database environment proposed in the Week One Individual Assignment. Perform a logical design on the proposed database environment without going through the full normalization process. Include the identification of all entities and attributes associated with the environment. Create a 1-page memo to document your logical design including the process you went through. Discuss the process you went through to select the appropriate data types, primary and foreign keys, and other constraints that are necessary to maintain the integrity of the database. Create a detailed Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) using the data specifications from the logical design. Use Microsoft® Visio®, Lucidchart, or another software tool of your choice to create this diagram.
DBM 380 Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Tables and Status Update
Instructions: Normalize your tables designed in Week Two. Using the MySQL™ Workbench, or through a script, construct the tables in MySQL™ from the logical database design from your normalized ERD. Populate each table with at least ten data records that would support the user's functional requirements. Write a 175- to 350-word Status Update for your Learning Team using Microsoft® Word describing the work you have completed this week. The Status Update is a simple Microsoft® Word document that lets the instructor know what the team has accomplished during the week. Compress all your table files and your Status Update into a single ZIP folder.
DBM 380 Week 3 Individual Assignment Database Normalization
Instructions: The following assignment is based on the database environment designed in the Week Two Individual Assignment. Your database project must meet the following assessment requirements:
- Design a database using professional principles and standards.
- Provide a logical design of the database. As a part of the design, normalize the database to the 3NF.
- Use Microsoft® Visio®, Lucidchart, or another software tool of your choice to create this diagram to normalize the Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) to third normal form (3NF).
DBM 380 Week 4 Learning Team Assignment MySQL
Instructions: Complete work on your Learning Team Database. Execute the following queries in the Diamond Broker database:
- Create an 1-page inventory list showing all the attributes for each diamond in inventory (both in stock and not in stock)
- Show the total price and costs for all in stock inventory items
- Show a 1-page list of all diamonds that are in stock and have a carat weight of over 1.0 carats
- Show a 1-page list of customer names and order numbers for those customers that have placed an order in the past twelve months
- Show a 1-page list of all orders with customer name and include all items that are on that order Compress the output of the queries including all of the scripts to create the database tables, to establish keys and constraints, to populate data within the database, and queries into a single ZIP folder.
DBM 380 Week 4 Individual Assignment Database Creation
Instructions: The following assignment is based on the database environment designed in the Week Three Individual Assignment. Your database project must meet the following assessment requirements:
- Create a database using professional principles and standards.
- Use a relational database software application to develop a database implementing the logical design into a physical design.
- Use MySQL database to create the normalized physical database including tables, columns with data types, primary keys, constraints, etc. Create a minimum of ten rows of test data in each table in an SQL file with the scripts needed to create tables with keys and to insert test rows, etc., into the tables.
DBM 380 Week 5 Learning Team Assignment Big Data
Instructions: The amount of data that large organizations must manage is vast. The concepts of managing "big data" are much different than traditional application databases (those similar to the diamond broker application, for example). Prepare a 5- to 6-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes that answers the following:
- How do organizations like Amazon, Facebook, or Google manage their "big data" systems?
- Explain the challenges these organizations face with managing these large systems.
- Recommend tools and techniques these organizations could use to help in the management of these systems.
- List the key functions that must be included in these tools. Include at least three external sources as a part of your research
DBM 380 Week 5 Individual Assignment SQL Queries
Instructions: The following assignment is based on the database environment created in the Week Four Individual Assignment. Design and develop the below queries using professional principles and standards:
- A set of SQL Statements that returns all rows and all data for each table in your database
- Two SQL Statements that return a subset of columns and a subset of rows using the WHERE clause
- Two SQL Statements that join two or more tables in one query. Look for primary and foreign keys to help you determine join points. Use the JOIN clause as a part of your queries
As a part of the Week Five assignment, it is important to resubmit work completed in Weeks One through Five for a complete project review. You should make any necessary improvements based on faculty feedback received to the documents in Weeks One through Four before submitting. Compress the following into a ZIP file:
- Week One - Database proposal document
- Week Two - ERD document
- Week Three - Normalized ERD document
- Week Four - Database Creation SQL files
- Week Five - SQL Query files
