Unit 9 Project


Data driven decision making is how all companies make informed decisions today. This data is collected from a


variety of sources and venues. Then the data is placed into a database to be analyzed and used to create queries


and reports to be used by decision makers in the company.


Part of the job of a database administrator is to determine what type of database is best used depending on the


data collected and the information required.


Types of Database Management Systems: Hierarchical, Network, Relational, and Object-Oriented


Hierarchical Database:


A hierarchical database is organized in pyramid fashion, like the branches of a tree


extending downwards. Related fields or records are grouped together so that there are


higher-level records and lower-level records, just like the parents in a family tree sit


above the subordinated children.


Network Database:


Network Databases are similar to hierarchical databases by also having a hierarchical


structure. There are a few key differences, however. Instead of looking like an upsidedown tree, a network database looks more like a cobweb or interconnected network of


records. In network databases, children are called members and parents are


called owners. The most important difference is that each child or member can have


more than one parent (or owner).


Relational Database:


Relational databases work on the principle that each table has a key field that uniquely


identifies each row, and that these key fields can be used to connect one table of data to


another. Thus, one table might have a row consisting of a customer account number as


the key field along with address and telephone number.


Object-oriented Database:


An object-oriented database can be used to store data from a variety of media sources,


such as Yes/No resources (as seen above), photographs and text, and produce work, as


output, in a multimedia format.


Project 9 Scenario


You are the Database Administrator for “Data R Us” and you have been asked to


research a set of online databases and determine what type of database they are; based


of the four explanations of the DBMS above.


Note: some of the online databases below may or may not meet all the requirements of


a specific database, so use your best judgment – you are not being graded on correct


answers, rather how you organize your database for this project.


Research the following Online Databases:


The Internet Movie Database (IMDb): http://www.imdb.com/


The Internet Public Library (IPL): http://www.ipl.org/


The Yellow Pages: http://www.yellowpages.com/


Popular Search Engine: http://www.google.com


WebMD: http://www.webmd.com


You will develop a hypothesis that will help you to set up the criteria to determine the


type of database you are reviewing. Please consider the controls for this experiment the


definitions of each type of database provided above.


You will collect this information in a database, which you will create, that will contain one


table with the specifics of each database you reviewed. You will determine the fields in


your table based off of your hypothesis. Then you will do the following:


Create a table


Create a form based off that table (you will use this to enter the data you will


collect)


Run a report that will show the results of your experiment


Deliverables:


Word Document: containing your hypothesis and a detailed summary of your research of


the various online databases and a description of your hypothesis and the testing criteria


you used to make your determination as to the type of database it is.


Save as: Unit_9_Lastname.docx


Database: containing a table with the specifics of each test including the data you


collected, the form you created, and finally the report you ran to show the results of


your study. The grouping and sorting is up to you for your report.

Unit 9: Final Project (Due in Unit 10)


Note: This Final Project is Due in Unit 10


Outcomes addressed in this assignment


Develop a relational database


Course outcome:


IT163-2: Create relational databases with multiple tables.


IT163 Final Course Project: Household Inventory Database


Scenario


We have all seen or read the various reports, over the years, about how devastating a


natural disaster can be; whether it is a hurricane, flood, fire, earthquake, or tornado, the


results are devastating. Creating a home inventory is important and can be used to help


you reclaim what may be lost in a natural disaster.


For this final project you will be designing and developing a Household Inventory


Database (HID). You will be creating tables, relationships, queries, forms, and reports.


You will be evaluated and graded on each area of your database, as shown in the


grading rubric, which is located on the last page of this assignment.


Deliverables


You will submit one (1) database to the Final Project Dropbox no later than 11:59pm ET


on Tuesday. Please ensure you name your database: Final_Project_Lastname.accdb


Step 1: Create Two Tables


Ensure you name your tables as shown


Table one: Inventory Item


*Serial Number Text Field (Primary Key)


Item Text Field


Description Memo Field


Condition Lookup Field (Excellent, Good, Fair,


etc.)


Date of


Purchase


Date Field (short date M/DD/YYYY)


Purchase Price Currency Field


Location Lookup Field (rooms in your house)


Note: Location areas to include


Living room – Kitchen – Office – Bedroom - Garage


Feel free to include other rooms as you need. However, those four should be


included and have items in those locations.


Table two: Manufacturer Info


Manufacturer Text Field


Model Text Field


Serial number Text Field


Warranty Boolean Field


(Yes/No)


Manufacturer URL Hyperlink


Step 2: Create a Form (This form will be used for data entry).


1. Create a form by selecting an AutoFormat and modify the form to make it userfriendly by adding a descriptive title. You can also modify the actual form layout, if


you like, as well.


a. Save the form as: Inventory Form


2. Enter at least 15 records. Make sure you have items in each of the rooms of your


house. This will be important for the queries and report you will design.


Step 3: Creating Relationships


1. Create a relationship between the two tables that links the Primary key to the


foreign key.


Step 4: Creating Queries


After you have completed entering in all the data, you will need to select and retrieve


the data in a variety of ways. The query object provides you with a way to select data


that meets the criteria you will set.


1. Use the Create Tab and select “Query Wizard”. Create a simple query that selects


item, manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, and location.


a. Save the query as: Room Items


2. In design view, add the Condition field to the query. Add a Selection Criteria to the


Location field so that only those records with the Location equal to “Living Room”


are displayed.


a. Save the query as: Living Room Items


3. Create a query that selects Items purchase, price and serial number


a. Save the query as: Item Price


Step 5: Create a Report


Create a report that will allow you to have a record of your inventory that includes only


the following: Item, Manufacturer, Model, and Purchase Price


1. Use the Report Wizard to create the report.


2. Modify the design so that the title is “Inventory Report” and all data and labels are


sized appropriately


3. Add totals by room and a grand totally to the report and add labels to the totals.


a. Save the report as: Inventory Report
