Linear Engineering Systems

Perform the following tasks (label cells as task numbers).  Note the first cell (unnumbered) should start with the identification “LAB 1” followed by yourFull Name and section number. Example: %% Lab 1 by Your_Name_Here  Section 61 or 62   In this first lab, you will create some fun-looking Lissajous figures. This will give you an opportunity to learn some basic MATLAB skills and commands.   Open MATLAB and create a new script file. You can either use the keyboard shortcut (Command or control +N) or do this by clicking the gold + icon in the upper left portion of the MATLAB window. Add your name and other info, after first typing %% to start a new section in the script.                             You can create a vector of time values using the notation: >> t = start : Read More …

University Database

A prestigious university has recently implemented a consolidation strategy that will require it to centralize their student records. In order to move forward, the local university will need to develop a data model that will retain student records and perform various data extract transform and load (ETL) processes. Imagine that you have been hired as a database consultant to assist in the development of a data design strategy for the student records. You met with various university subject matter experts and have determined the following after performing various business analysis processes: Faculty groups are divided by core competencies that the university offers. For example, there are groups such as the Art Faculty, Computer Technology Faculty, Language Faculty, and Science Faculty. Each faculty member has an assigned Dean and is designated to teach at one particular campus and school. They are able to teach as many courses as required. Courses are Read More …

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 streamline 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 three to four (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 Read More …
