The purpose of MySQL workbench is to provide the interface to work with databases more easily and in a more structured way.

MySQL workbench has tools that allow developers and database administrators visually create physical database design models that can be easily translated into MySQL databases using forward engineering.

MySQL workbench supports creation of multiple models in the same environment.
