TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
The first thing that usually comes to mind when talking about database models is ER-diagrams, and the ways to create them. The second most recognizable notation is the Crow’s Foot, which visually differs from Chen’s notation. Actually, it doesn’t matter which notation you’ll use for your entity relationship diagram (ERD), but the content is what matters.
When designing an Entity-Relationship Diagram one need to use a certain notated symbols that were developed and standardized especially for databases description. First of them - the Chen’s notation had a linguistic origin. It includes rectangle boxes to show entities that may be described as nouns, and the relationships between them described as verbs depicted in a form of diamond. Finally the Chen’s notation was simplified up to the Crow’s Foot notation. It represents a relationship as labeled line. It is precisely this notation is shown in the given figure. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM together with its Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution is designed to support professionals who deals with creating ER diagrams using the element of both - Chen’s and Crow's Foot notations.

Database structures are usually described by ER-diagrams which represents entities as boxes with lines-connections between them. You can create any entity-relationship diagram (ERD) by means of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using ready-to-use templates and special libraries containing all the needed symbols and shapes. Creating a model for your database from now on can take just a few minutes.
ERD (entity relationship diagram) designed to show the logical structure of databases. It intended to depict the relationships between data components (entities). ERDs are a popular tool for software engineers and architects. Using ERD they can manage the every aspect of database design. Also ERD can be used as guidelines for testing and communications before software release. This diagram represents the file reference system of the WordPress web platform. Because entity relationship diagrams have such a broad application area through the prevalence of database technology, it can be applied for a wide range of users.

Both Crow’s Foot and Chen’s notations are used to build database models. Each of them has its’ own features, and if you use a proper entity relationship diagram software, you’ll be able to create diagrams of any notation. Database model with clearly defined entities and relationships between them facilitates further work greatly.
This ERD represents the model of Employee Certification Entity. The entity-relationship diagram is a visual instrument of database software development. It is used to structure data and to define the relationships between structured data groups. This ERD was designed with a help of ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution. The solution supports the both basic ERD notations used to describe the structure of database: Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations.
