How to Create a Data Flow Diagram using ConceptDraw PRO

Data flow diagramming is a highly effective technique for showing the flow of information through a system. Data flow diagrams reveal relationships among and between the various components in a program or system. DFD is an important technique for modeling a system’s high-level detail by showing how input data is transformed to output results through a sequence of functional transformations. The set of standard symbols is used to depict how these components interact in a system. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw a simple and clear Data Flow Diagram using special libraries. Read more
The vector stencils library "DFD, Gane-Sarson notation" contains 12 DFD elements.
Use it for drawing data flow diagrams (DFD) using Gane-Sarson notation in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
