There is no problem with having manyto-many relationships in a conceptual design because such a design is independent of any particular technology. However, if the database is going to be relational, some changes have to be made as we map the conceptual model to the corresponding logical model. The solution is to map the intersection data to a separate table (an intersection table) and the many-to-many relationship to two one-to-many relationships, with the intersection table in the middle and on the “many” side of both relationships.

His work bolstered the modeling weaknesses in the relational model and became the foundation of many modeling techniques that followed.
