For my Capstone, I assisted Computer Science Instructor Kathi Davis with her implementation of an expert system to translate a conventional file system into a commercial database system. The main purpose of her expert system is to give users of conventional file systems a tool to use in the conversion to commercial database systems; an easy tool that will make the process less painful than it is today. The conventional file system is first translated into a conceptual Entity-Relationship model and this conceptual model is then translated into a commercial database system. The Entity-Relationship conceptual model assists the user in understanding what currently exists within his environment and helps in forming a new conceptual model of the desired database environment.
