CRICOS Provider No. 00103D ITECH 1006 / 5006 Laboratory 2 Page 1 of 6 Faculty of Science and Technology ITECH1006/5006 Database Management Systems Database Management Systems Tutorial Week 2 Tasks 1.Identify issues in the Crow’s Foot notations used in the following ERD.2.Lucidchart - this product is a browser based diagramming tool; it is able to draw a wide range of different diagrams, including ER Diagrams. As a University student you are entitled to a free Lucidchart account. You can sign up for the free account using your university email address. When your account is created and an invitation email sent to your FedUni student account (check Spam if the message is not in your inBox). Click on the link in your Lucidchart welcome email and you will be able to make use of the software. As a first step you should look at the provided tutorials, in particular "Entity Relationship Diagrams".To prepare conceptual models (ERDs), you may use Lucidchart or any other drawing package. Notes:The main purpose of this task is to expose students to an ER diagramming tool. In this course, although students can use any software (including simple ones like MS-Word) for creating their ERD, I believe it would be much easier and less tedious if students could using a proper diagramming tool. Note that it is not in the scope of this course to teach every aspect of Lucidchart and students are expected to explore the tool independently.
