Exercise: auto repair
You are designing a database for an automobile repair shop. When a customer brings in a vehicle, a service advisor will write up a repair order. This order will identify the customer and the vehicle, along with the date of service and the name of the advisor.
• A vehicle might need several different types of service in a single visit. These could include oil change, lubrication, rotate tires, and so on. Each type of service is billed at a pre-determined number of hours work, regardless of the actual time spent by the technician. Each type of service also has a flat “book rate” of dollars-per-hour that is charged.
The solution to this exercise will be discussed in class or posted online at a later date.
