In the Graph Drawing problem a set of symbols must be placed in a plane and their connections routed. The objective is to produce aesthetically pleasant, easy to read diagrams. As a primary concern one usually tries to minimize edges crossing, edges’ length, waste of space and number of bents in the connections. When formulated with these constraints the problem becomes NP-Hard . In practice many additional complicating requirements can be included, such as non-uniform sizes for symbols. Thus, some heuristics such as the generalized force-direct method and Simulated Annealing have been proposed to tackle this problem. uses a grid structure to approach the Entity-Relationship (ER) drawing problem, emphasizing the differences between ER drawing and the more classical circuit drawing problems. presented different ways of producing graph layouts (e.g.: tree, orthogonal, visibility representations, hierarchic, among others) for general graphs with applications on different subjects. The ability to automatically produce high quality layouts is very important in many applications, one of these is Software Engineering: the availability of easy to understand ER diagrams, for instance, can improve the time needed for developers to master database models and increase their productivity. Our solution approach involves two phases: (\(i\)) firstly the optimal placement of entities is solved, i.e.: entities are positioned so as to minimize the distances between connected entities; and (\(ii\)) secondly, edges are routed minimizing bends and avoiding the inclusion of connectors too close. We present the model for the first phase of our problem.
