I'm not looking for an exact answer but some from experience. I have developed/designed small databases before but I have been tasked to reverse engineer a web-based application which includes approximately 900 data elements. I'm assuming this database would require about 30-35 tables.
The timeline given preferred is 3-5 days by the customer. Can someone from experience provide me with some information as to how feesible that time line is. I honestly, initially, had given a far much longer time-line.
I think the database schema can be erected fairly quickly (1 week) but more time would be required taking into consideration the relationships, indexes, constraints, keys, etc.
Any insight will be highly appreciated.
