Scrum process work items and workflow
Scrum is a popular iterative and incremental agile framework for managing product and software development. For planning a project, tracking the defects, bugs, work and blocking issues when developing software, viewing and reporting a progress, the teams working with Scrum methodology use the product backlog items (PBIs), bug work item types (WITs), reports and dashboards. When defining a product backlog item, you can focus on the value which will be received by your customers without description how this will be achieved. Working in sprints, the teams can define tasks which automatically link to PBIs and bugs.

- From a Scrum charts library take a Sprint burndown chart object
- Enlarge the graph using sharp handle.
- Rename table columns headings.
- Related names on the graph will change automatically.
- Use object action menu.
- Set the needed quantity of points for the graph.
- For this case it is equal to the quantity of days from March 3rd to April 7th.
- For handful usage, move the table to a free space on the page.
- To do so, use a yellow control dot.
- Fill a table with data.
- To select a cell, click a few times on it.
- Use object action menu.
- Set the increment for Y axis.
- Use object action menu.
- Set the maximum value for Y axis.
- That value can't be less than a maximum number indicated in the table.
- Select a cell Real, select a Color menu.
- Set a color for the header cell.
- The color of the line graph and legend data will update automatically, as these parameters are connected.
- Use object action menu.
- Hide the table with data, you don't need it anymore.
- Stretch the graph adjusting it to the page size.
- Move the legend under the graph using a yellow control dot.
- Use layers inspector.
- Rename the second layer and set it as active.
- Lock the previous layer for editing.
- Use a rectangle from Drawing Shapes library.

Cross-Functional FlowchartThere are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart. This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.
Network Glossary DefinitionWhen talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems. The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw PRO libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.
