Description

Description

This is a follow up to the earlier lecture on performing a fabrication database health checkup. You can use our default data set, or bring a copy of your own database for use in the lab-and you can leave with the real personalized data to use back at your office. Do you know what's in your fabrication database? Do you know what's missing? This lab will show you how to perform a health checkup on your fabrication database so you can make informed decisions about what you need to do. And now that you know what needs doing, how do you do it? How do you do it efficiently? This lab will also show you how to make those changes in an informed and effective manner. The fabrication database is very powerful, but also fragile and complicated. It's common to see mismanagement or even complete lack of management because of fear or effort involved in correcting issues. This lecture will arm you with the knowledge to take charge of your database instead of it managing you.
