|(database, specification)||entity-relationship model - An approach to data modelling
proposed by P. Chen in 1976. The model says that you divide
your database in two logical parts, entities (e.g. "customer",
"product") and relations ("buys", "pays for").|
Entity-relationship diagrams can be used to represent a model.
