Database Modeling and Normalization 
Imagine that you work for a consulting firm that offers information technology and database services. Part of its core services is to optimize and offer streamlined solutions for efficiency. In this scenario, your firm has been awarded a contract to implement a new personnel system for a government agency. This government agency has requested an optimized data repository for its system which will enable the management staff to perform essential human resources (HR) duties along with the capability to produce ad hoc reporting features for various departments. They look forward to holding data that will allow them to perform HR core functions such as hiring, promotions, policy enforcement, benefits management, and training.
Using this scenario, write a 3–4 page paper in which you:

Determine      the steps in the development of an effective Entity Relationship Model      (ERM) Diagram and determine the possible iterative steps/factors that one      must consider in this process with consideration of the HR core functions      and responsibilities of the client.
Analyze      the risks that can occur if any of the developmental or iterative steps of      creating an ERM Diagram are not performed.
Select      and rank at least 5 entities that would be required for the development of      the data repositories.
Specify      the components that would be required to hold time-variant data for policy      enforcement and training management.
Diagram      a possible 1:M solution that will hold salary history data, job history,      and training history for each employee through the use of graphical tools.      Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required      page length.
Plan      each step of the normalization process to ensure the 3NF level of      normalization using the selected 5 entities of the personnel database      solution. Document each step of the process and justify your assumptions      in the process.
Diagram      at least 5 possible entities that will be required to sustain a personnel      solution. The diagram should include the following: 
Dependency      diagrams.
Multivalued      dependencies.
Note:      The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page      length.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

Paper      should be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (12-point),      with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow      APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any      additional instructions.
Include      a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your      professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the      reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
Include      charts or diagrams created in a drawing tool with which you are familiar.      The completed diagrams or charts must be imported into the Word document      before the paper is submitted.
