Normally schema techniques are used to ease communication between developers, by making a graphical model of a part of the system design.

Every technique consists of a set of symbols and a definition how to use.
Take for instance DataFlowDiagram's. They intend to describe the flow of data through processes, making clear what process is using what data.

When I read Data Schema I assume a link with data-modelling. Normally a table is depoicted as a square and a relation as a line. To make clear what relation is depicted (1:N, one to many or N:M, many to many) often numbers and/or "*" (for many) are used.

When you have MS Access you can see a form of this graphical representation when you select Tools/Relationships.
On the screen you can place the tables and drag and drop fields from one table to another to define a relation.

You will also notify that it's easier to explain the relations between a number of tables this way then by writing it down! (One picture says more than a thousand words)

Stays for me the question where you found this term?
When you want to know more about this Schema you will need the definitions and symbols used. Without them I can't tell you much more about it.

Hope it helps ?!

Could you give some more information?
Do you point to an Oracle environment (Schema program) or to a data structuring schema?
