The Belgian Chocolate Company: A Dynamic Data Modeling and Database Design Case for the Accounting Information Systems
The Belgian Chocolate Company (BCC) case was designed to be used in an accounting information systems (AIS) class with strong emphasis on the Resource-Event-Agent (REA) model, data modeling, and database design. Students are asked to design, implement, and use an accounting database. A unique feature of the case is its delivery through the Internet by means of a dynamic web site. Instructors are able to adapt the content of the case to their specific needs and to create individualized assignments for students.
Key Words: Data modeling, Database design, Dynamic web site, Internet, REA.
