A Decision Support Method for Evaluating Database Designs

It is possible to produce different database designs based on the same set of requirements to a database. In this paper, the authors present a decision support method for comparing different database designs and for selecting one of them as the best design. Each data model is an abstract language that can be used to create many different databases. The proposed method is flexible in the sense that it can be used in case of different data models, criteria, and designs. The method is based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process and uses pairwise comparisons.
