Normalized Database Design Assignment Instructions: A relational database must be designed and normalized before it can be created, populated with data, and used. Database design depends on the business scenario(s) a database architect needs to model, but all relational database designs benefit from being normalized. Download and follow the instructions on the Normalized Database Design document. Note: For this assignment, you will be given a business scenario. If you make changes during the normalization process (and usually this is the case) you will update your ERD to reflect the changes. Later in this course, you will be asked to implement the ERD from this week. Submit your ERD and your normalized database design.
