ENTITY-RELATIONSHIP MODEL
  1. Context:
    Design


    Definition:
    A type of conceptual data model that represents structured data in terms of entities and relationships. An entity-relationship diagram can be used to represent information objects and their relationships visually. Because the constructs used in the entity-relationship model can easily be transformed into relational tables, this type of model is often used in database design.
