Generalized Expert System for Database Design (GESDD) is a compound expert system made up of two parts: (1) an expert system for generating methodologies for database design, called ESGM; and (2) an expert system for database design, called ESDD. ESGM provides a tool for the database design expert to specify different design methodologies or to modify existing ones. The database designer uses ESDD in conjunction with one of these methodologies to design a database starting from the requirement specification phase and producing a logical schema in one of the well-known data models, namely, the hierarchical data model, the network data model, or the relational data model. The system is evolutive in the sense that an existing methodology can be modified or a novel methodology can be added to the existing ones. GESDD is a menu-driven system and it is coded in Prolog.< >
