Entity-relationship model, also called ER-model, is the main tool of domain modeling on the stage of conceptual design.

ER-diagram lets visually represent the entities, helps effectively document all properties of designed system and to detail the data storages. To represent the elements at ER-model are commonly used Chen’s notation and Crow’s foot notation, each has its pros and cons.
