Getting the data-model right is always an iterative process - an initial draft data model will be sketched out by one team member and then passed around for peer review. Issues that arise from the database design process will feed into the overall system design; queries that get answered here may throw up questions that need to be addressed elsewhere

Cans of worms and other wriggly creatures

Some aspects of the model will seem simple at first - for example, it might seem obvious that an individual's name should be stored as a two short text strings, forename and surname. But how should a middle name or initial be stored? Should we have a field for 'title'? Should a title field have a controlled vocabulary? Should the title field be 'normalised' (see below)?

There's not always an obvious answer to these questions, and the database model that works for one project might not quite make sense on another project. Tricky questions that arise at this stage might prompt a brief trip back to the requirements analysis stage to better capture what the system does and doesn't need to do.
