Physical Model Implementation Case Study
In some respects, the hardest part of the database project is when you actually start to create code. If you really take the time to do the design well, you begin to get attached to the design, largely because you have created something that has not existed before. Once the normalization task is complete, you have pretty much everything ready for implementation, but tasks still need to be performed in the process for completing the transformation from the logical model to the physical, relational model. We are now ready for the finishing touches that will turn the designed model into something that users (or at least developers!) can start using. At a minimum, between normalization and actual implementation, take plenty of time to review the model to make sure you are completely happy with it.
