Consider a typical job order that might include the following information. Design a single table to hold all the information required to store a job order including this information. Next, apply normalization to reduce this table to third normal form. Prepare a Word document showing your original and final tables. Include a short summary (2-3 paragraphs) of the problems with the original single table design and how normalization improved the design.
This solution deals with normalizing a database until the Third Normal Form. It also summarizes the three normal forms along with the definition of normalization. It also explains how normalization improves database design.
Normalization and Optimization
Do explain the process of Normalization?
Explain the context in which Normalization is used?
What is its purpose?
What are the steps to be taken?
What do we actually do when we normalize?
Would you describe Normalization as Science or Art?
Dedicate your last paragraph to Optimization (de-normalization)View Full Posting Details
