Section “C”

Case Analysis

18. Draw an entity-relationship diagram for the following information system.

The Aeroporto Transport Services Company runs a limousine service that carries passengers to and from the Toronto airport to their homes or places of business. They maintain a database of customers on a PC in order to schedule pickups and also to keep their customers from having to repeat address information each time they call the limousine service. The database for the customers is accessed by customer telephone numbers. If a customer is picked up sometimes at their home and sometimes at their office, both home and office telephone numbers and addresses are stored in the database. The customer may also schedule a pickup from the airport when his or her flight arrives or may call from the airport and reserve a limousine which will come in approximately five minutes. When a request for a pickup comes in, the dispatcher checks for available drivers, call one, and assigns them to a customer. Typically cars are assigned to the driver each workday and often a driver will take a car home for an early morning pickup if needed.

The relevant customer and driver attribute kept in the database for managing the customer pickup and delivery is as follows:

Customer Name, Customer Home, Telephone Number, Customer Home Address, Customer Home Region, Customer Work Telephone Number, Customer Work Address, Customer Work City Region, Date of Pickup, Time of Pickup, Driver assigned to Pickup, Special Pickup Information, Flight Number, Air Carrier Arrival Time, Customer Drop-off City, Region Driver ID, Driver Name Driver, Address, Driver City Region, Driver, Phone Number, Car ID, Car Make, Car License Number
