Planning the database

Before you begin creating the database you will need to develop a plan.

The plan must show:

  • That you have identified the purpose of the database.
  • What is the best database model to meet the requirements: flatfile, hierarchical, relational, network or a combination of models

Please note
You will only be able to complete page 1 of the plan at this stage. You will complete page 2 (field names, data types and additional specifications) as you work through Unit 2.

Do not submit the plan until you have completed page 2.
