A database is the backbone of any application, and therefore it must be sturdy, reliable, and accurate. Having a well-designed database is the key to having your database meet these criteria, and the six-step database design technique ensures that the data model upon which your database is based is sturdy, reliable, and accurate.

Case studies demonstrating the Six-Step Relational Database Design technique
After a brief overview of the six-step database design process, three case studies are used to demonstrate how the technique works. Each case study starts with a concise statement of the problem and then goes through each of the six steps that are part of the six-step database design technique, ending with a Crow's Foot relational database model.
Some knowledge of database design terminology and techniques is required, and while this course does delve into the details of the six-step relational database design technique, you will learn, from examples, how this technique can be used to create a sturdy, reliable, and accurate relational database model. The extensive supplemental resources (handouts) that compliment the video tutorials allow you to fully understand how the six-step relational database design technique works.
You will learn what the six steps of Six-Step Relational Database Design are, and how they work to transform a problem statement into a Crow's Foot relational database model using three examples.
