Kurt Jost A database is a table-based tool offering an organized mechanism to store, manage, and retrieve information. Relational data becomes a powerful business tool when queried for desired information by users and relationships established between other pieces of data. A variety of different types of databases are available, some more common than others. The database administrator’s task is to choose the database type that will best work with the data provided. A database system consists of four components: database, a database management system, database application, and users.
At my workplace various databases are in use. At Omega Engineering for three decades its handbooks have served as valuable reference tools for engineers around the world. Though it is an established direct-marketing pioneer, the people, facilities and superior client services go well beyond the original Omega handbooks and have progressed into a highly automated, online data warehouse accessed via its website www.omega.com. Omega's world-famous product handbooks and encyclopedias, online as well as in print, feature hundreds of thousands of products, technical tips, topical articles, reference charts and graphs, and some of the largest, most detailed product images in the industry. A document-oriented database layers other database systems, for example, a relational database. Structured query language (SQL) server databases are used extensively on-the-job, for example, to
• Retrieve all records that match certain criteria
• Update records in bulk
• Cross reference records on different tables
• Perform complex aggregate calculations
These are only a few of the varying databases in use for manufacturing, sales, customer services, logistics/traffic management. The large-scale database uses the Structured Query Language…...

...some concept on aggression. Aggression is the emotions that everyone has to face in the daily life. No one likes to be in that emotion and that was the biggest challenge for us. From this we started thinking that how it can be brought into a positive level. So we decided that this would be an aggression releasing treatment for the stressed ones. A space is designed which induce aggression in a normal person and take that aggression into a hyper level and breaks it suddenly and makes an art piece in the end of the treatment. Basically it’s a passage painted with psychedelic design and there are four levels for it. On the first level it’s with checker board, which generally do not make much irritation on normal people, because people generally have a tendency that if they get into a weird place or situation they tend avoid going there. So we don’t want that to happen with space and it’s been design in such a way that after you cross one level the door closes and you cannot go back. The second level includes noisy floor, door closing with irritating sound, which again annoy you and when you enter the third level the difficulty increases again. There would be an arrangement of irregular steps, Illusion wall and floor, Illusion fans and lights. This would raise the aggression into an optimum level. The fourth level is the toughest one and it is the last one. This level contains irregular mirror and highly mind blowing psychedelic painting and also with annoying sound systems......

Se realizează Diagrama Entitate-Relaţie (DER) – de preferat în forma cu entităţi şi atribute prezentate ca în Figura 3-15. 36 3.5 Limbajul Unificat de Modelare (UML) Până în anii 1990, se considera că activitatea de analiză şi proiectare este specifică tipului de aplicaţie vizat – de exemplu aplicaţie de rezolvare a unei probleme economice (realizată cu baze de date) sau aplicaţie de rezolvare a unei probleme de automatizare (realizate cu programe în limbaj de nivel mediu sau jos). După apariţia programării orientate obiect (OOP) s-au dezvoltate metode de analiză specifice acestei abordări, cum sunt - OMT (Object Modeling Technique) – iniţiată de James Rumbaugh, - OOD (Object Oriented Design) – iniţiată de Greedy Booch, - OOSE (Object-Oriented Software Engineering) – iniţiată de Ivar Jacobson. În deceniul 1990, s-a constatat că metodele de analiză şi proiectare orientate obiect au un grad de generalitate foarte mare şi pot fi folosite în diverse domenii şi în abordări care nu erau orientate obiect. Mai mult cele trei metode amintite aveau diferenţe de nuanţă sau se completau în multe privinţe, dar lumea era divizată între cele trei metode de abordare. Această situaţie de conflict a fost rezolvată după 1997, când se înfiinţează Limbajul UML constă din setul de concepte şi notaţii privind structura şi funcţionarea unui sistem din lumea reală, spre a fi modelat şi reprezentat grafic în mod intuitiv şi lucrativ – adică uşor......

Minimise east and west wall areas and avoid windows on east and western walls to prevent low morning and afternoon sun heating up the house 6. Correctly sized eaves can provide permanent shade to north and south windows and walls (northern verandas make sense 7. Plant tall trees on the east and west sides of the house to shade walls 8. Tall trees on north and south shade roof (minimise mid-height foliage to let breeze through for naturally ventilated houses). Consider leaving half roof unshaded if solar panels are to be used Design for Natural Ventilation 1. Use the breeze for cross ventilation through openings in opposite walls and internal partitions 2. Maximise the area of windows (e.g. louvres) that can be opened 3. Orientate house to catch the breeze (whilst still minimising sun on east and west walls) 4. A long narrow floor plan catches the breeze best. 5. Trees and shrubs act to cool the air passing through the house. 6. Don't use exposed concrete on ground immediately outside the house as it heats the air. 7. Roof space ventilation draws the heat out. 8. Dirty flyscreens block more breeze. Consider......

Design Pitfalls and Major Design

...Design Pitfalls and Major Design/Interaction Problems Websites have the potential to promote business and reach wide audiences with information and interaction opportunities. Unfortunately, common pitfalls make online experiences negative for customers and information seekers. An initial pitfall of websites is often their homepage; the homepage is an introduction and it should be inviting, clean, and easy to navigate. Having an opening page that is cluttered with irrelevant content, busy background, and lacking basic organization information leaves a bad first impression. Another issue is a site not being regularly maintained and frustrating its users with out of date and missing information. Working links are helpful, but choosing a “click here option” that doesn’t open or leads to “page not found” can try a user’s patience. By the same token, having unwanted content in the form of outside ads or suggestion pop-ups during use can add to user annoyance. An additional website stumbling block is poorly formatted menu options and the absence of an internal search feature. Website users should be able to easily follow menu options to drill down to the level of information they need versus being hit with too much information upfront or complicated menu features that seem like a convoluted maze. Having a search option that throws a user outside of the website into a Google search versus searching internally can cause undue irritation. Information seekers come to a......

...Suliman AlSumairi Dr.Paul Sevensky COMM 598-01 Special Topics Assignment 1 – Analysis of Ad Campaign The Invenergy Campaign ads series convey important messages with basic design layout from my perspective. The photos, fonts, and colors failed to provide an effective example of alignment and proximity. However, it’s more likely hard to reveal the concept of the messages when you look at them for first time. Based on last discussion at the class, the relationships of elements of design to each other and to the total composition play an important role. They help to arrange and enhance the delivery of messages in effective compositions. For instance, Stronger Jessup ad failed to illustrate the relationship between the visual symbol and the text. They have not applied the alignment element, which needs a visual connection. As a result, ignoring any principle will make the design of the advertisement poor. Designing of visual documents and understanding of color importance helps when incorporating it into any design. The reason for the impact is that the colors have deep subliminal meanings that have massive impact on human attention. Choices regarding color should be matched with purpose of messages that try to deliver. Ads should have the colors in them perfectly matching. It is clearly shown in the advertisements. Whenever they run out of color meanings, they use blue and yellow. Color psychology dictates that the appropriate color enhance the environment. Green,......

A comparative analysis is essential to unveil focal points that lead to this organizational mindset transformation. Hence, a thorough understanding of the method and its core values may avoid uncoordinated innovation capabilities. Ultimately innovation will not be an R&D topic in an organization anymore but become part for every employee’s job, irrespective of his or her position. Keywords: Design thinking methods and characteristics, Review 1. INTRODUCTION A number of new innovation methods have emerged during the past two decades with an increasing interdisciplinary collaboration between the engineering, economic and social sciences. In spite of this, it is still a challenge to develop and introduce new innovations. One approach that increasingly makes its way to businesses of all sizes is called Design Thinking. This approach seems to be more promising to operationalize the innovation capabilities of a company (Brenner and Witte, 2011). Design Thinking is a human-centered problem solving method that mostly leads to radical innovative solution in terms of the feasibility,......

Created as a high quality item, with its aptness for high detail and sustainability, the soft tip of the pen shortens the lifespan through attrition. I propose a solution to increase the amount of soft tip available in the pen by redesigning the pen to assimilate a mechanical pencil. I then delve into detail about the Micron Pen 005’s reflection on society in regards to accessibility, quality, and frugality. This analysis is then concluded that my solution would create a more reliable product. Design Flaw and Solution to the Micron Pen 005 Even in today’s technology dependent world, a quality pen is a necessity. People desire something that has permanence and accuracy for daily tasks such as writing reports, scratching down notes, or drawing out rough drafts. A pen that glides onto the paper with precision is necessary to get the job done perfectly. Now enter Sakura’s Micron Pen. Designed with the user in mind, the average person is able to handle it with the simplest of motions. However, specifically with the Micron Pen 005, there are flaws that have some considering this pen as inefficient and thus needs......

Logical Design and Physical Design

...Logical Design and Physical Design CMGT 555/ Systems Analysis and Development   Throughout the whole process of system development, there are designs that take place before any coding or setup takes place. During this time, phrases like logical design and physical design get tossed around a lot, but what are they and what do they mean? In short, the logical design defines what must take place, not how it is accomplished. The logical design is like a set of blue prints, it describes the actual processes of entering, verifying, and storing data. In this paper we will explain when logical designs and physical designs are used, what design information a logical design and physical design contain and any similarities or differences. Figure 1. Example of Logical Model and Physical Model for an ERD Relationship Diagram (Compare Logical and Physical ERD, 2009) The direct definition of a logical design “is the Conceptual Blueprint of a software application, illustrating entities, relationships, rules, and processes (Thibeault, 2011)”. So what is the logical design is used for? The logical design contains all the business entries, what each entries attributes are, and relationships among entries. Now the logical design to some is misleading because they often confuse it with detailed technical design, even though the goals for these two are not similar at all. Now when do we use the logical design? That question is simpler to answer; it usually starts during the......

...delineates a space in the open air. There are three principal types of structural walls: building walls, exterior boundary walls, and retaining walls. Building walls have one main purpose: to support roofs and ceilings. Such walls most often have three or more separate components. In today's construction, a building wall will usually have the structural elements (such as 2×4 studs in a house wall), insulation, and finish elements or surface (such as drywall or panelling). In addition, the wall may house various types of electrical wiring or plumbing. Electrical outlets are usually mounted in walls.Building walls frequently become works of art externally and internally, such as when featuring mosaic work or when murals are painted on them; or as design foci when they exhibit textures or painted finishes for effect.On a ship, the walls separating compartments are termed "bulkheads", whilst the thinner walls separating cabins are termed "partitions".In architecture and civil engineering, the term curtain wall refers to the facade of a building which is not load-bearing but functions as decoration, finish, front, face, or history preservation. A partition wall is a wall for the purpose of separating rooms, or dividing a room. Partition walls are usually not load-bearing.Partition walls may be constructed with bricks or blocks from clay, terra-cotta or concrete, reinforced, or hollow. Glass blocks may also be used.They may also be constructed from sheet glass. Glass partition......
