Paper Abstract

Many existing methods of modeling temporal information are based on logical model, which makes relational schema optimization more difficult and more complicated. In this paper, based on the conventional EER model, the author attempts to analyse and abstract temporal information in the phase of conceptual modelling according to the concrete requirement to history information. Then a temporal data model named BTEER is presented. BTEER not only retains all designing ideas and methods of EER which makes BTEER have good upward compatibility, but also supports the modelling of valid time and transaction time effectively at the same time. In addition, BTEER can be transformed to EER easily and automatically. It proves in practice, this method can model the temporal information well.
