Database System Requirements (Group Work):

  • Create a database and name it ITCO630_GPx where “x” is your group letter. Populate your database with appropriate test data.
  • Include all of the scripts in a single file called ITCO630_GPx.SQL where x is your group letter.

Individual Summary:

In addition to the group work described above, each group member will prepare a summary document with the following information. This document will be submitted as a separate item along with the ZIP of the database and the associated files. Do not submit a single group document. This document must be created individually, and copying from other group members is not allowed. Your assignment must include the following:

  • A Word document describing the system
  • An ERD or other graphical representation of the system
  • A description of the views, stored procedures, triggers, and queries
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to run the queries that will demonstrate the functionality of the system
  • A summary of strengths and weaknesses of the system, as designed

Each student will submit the database, log file, and query files in a zip file called ITCO630_GP.ZIP, and his or her own individual summary document as a separate submission. Please detach the database before creating the zip file.

Please add your file.
