ER Diagram for the Proposed Solutions

 

ER Diagram Design for Practice Firm

 

The Diagram depicts the key tables and how the entire system could work with dependencies between the tables and the relational data connections.

Dependency Diagram

 

The dependencies are developed according to 3NF levels

Relational Schema:

Structure Info (Structure_ID, Structure Name)
SECTOR Information (Sector_ID, Sector Name)
SERVICE (Service_ID, Service Name)
Client Information (Customer_ID, First Name, Last Name, Add-1,Add-2,  City, State, Zip code, Contact, Phone, ABN, TFN, Structure _ID, Sector _ID, Service_ID)
HR Master (Employee_ID, First Name, Last Name, Designation, Qualification, Service_ID, Qualification, DoJ, DoR, Cstatus)

Current Rate Card (Rate_ID, DoM, Employee_ID, Rate, Service_ID)

Previous Rate Card(PRate_ID, Previous Rate, Employee_ID)
Client Services Form (Appointment_ID, Customer_ID, Client Name, Service_ID, Structure_ID, Date of Start, Date of End, Start Time, End Time, Employee_ID,  Charge)
Billing Values (Billing_ID, Date From, Date To, Date, Total Charge, Employee_ID, Customer_ID, Appointment_ID)

 

Assumptions taken in to Consideration

 

In the given case context scenario, there are various factors that have been detailed pertaining to the existing system, and there are certain issues that has been detailed for which the solution is potentially required to develop the business in an extended manner.

Keeping in purview the need of the system, the following assumptions has been taken in to consideration.

1) The validations and the rules for the integration of the data and the records shall be taken up during the code development

2) The types and the characters of the fields has not been detailed in this report, assuming the factor, that the process of assigning the characters and the length is standardized and is laid in the specifications and hence is not assigned in specific in this document.

3) The table names has been created on own ideas as the case context does not define any specific inputs on the case scenario.

3NF and the relations

The 3NF is a very essential attribute that has to be considered in an effective manner which could reduce the redundancy in the system, but in the given case scenario, when the solutions are proposed, for few tables, the 3NF is not adhered to, keeping in view the limited records that could take place in each table, and the complexities that could arise in terms of increasing the integration of the data between various tables.

The tables where the 3NF is not adapted are the “Previous Rate Card”, “Current Rate Card”, “Client Services Form”. Keeping in purview the information solicitation that is required for the tables, the fields has been taken in to inclusion in the table for records.
