CS Odessa Announces Chen Notation Addition to ConceptDraw SolutionsFebruary 14, 2017
San Jose, California – CS Odessa is pleased to announce the addition of Chen Notation Model Solution for ConceptDraw PRO v11. The new addition to ConceptDraw Solution Park is a free item for current users of ConceptDraw PRO v11, and is available immediately.
In 1976 Dr. Peter Chen, then a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, proposed a new entity-relationship model for database design. Dr. Chen’s entity-relationship model objective was designed to leverage the advantages of the three entity-data models (network model, relationship model, entity model) in use at the time. The entity-relationship model proposed by Dr. Chen is constructed using a more natural view of how the real world comprises entities and the relationships that exist with these identified entities. Dr. Chen’s model minimizes the semantic ambiguities present in the data models that were in use at the time.
The entity-relationship model is comprised of a number of 2D representational shapes and some visual conventions to describe data and data structures. CS Odessa has released a free Chen Notation library and samples that are available for use with ConceptDraw PRO v11, this new Entity-relationship solution can be downloaded from the ConceptDraw Solution Park located on the ConceptDraw web site. The Chen Notation Model is a popular standard and is widely used worldwide in database and software design.
