The problem solving and decision-making processes are closely linked and crucial for the business and life. There are many tools and techniques for facilitating and improvement these processes, and also enhancement the quality of accepted decisions. One of them is Fisbone Diagram or Cause and Effect diagram. For its construction, you need first define the problem which you need to solve (existing or potential), write it into rectangular and draw to it a horizontal line - a “fish spine”. Then define general types of possible causes like Persons, Materials, Methods, Machinery, Measurements or Environment, and attach them to “spine”. Start brainstorming the possible reasons of failure and connect them to the branches.
Professional diagramming ConceptDraw PRO MAC OSX software offers the Fishbone Diagrams solution which contains templates, samples, and ready Fishbone design objects. Use of them lets effectively identify the possible causes for an effect, realize successfully cause and effect analysis, and instantly draw Fishbone diagram on Mac software. Read more

A Flowchart is a commonly used type of chart that describes an algorithm, process or workflow. It applies the boxes of various kinds to represent the steps and connects them with arrows showing their order. The Flowcharts help to understand the processes, visualize the process steps, and effectively find the flaws and bottlenecks. They are widely used in various fields for analyzing, documenting, designing, and managing simple and complex processes and programs, for representing process operations and problems' solution models. There are many types of Flowcharts, such as Cross-Functional Flowcharts, Data Flow Diagrams, Swimlane Flowcharts, Workflow Diagrams, Business Process Diagrams, Process Flowcharts, etc.
ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful diagram software used to create Flow chart on Mac and Windows without efforts. The Flowcharts solution from What is a Diagram area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and ConceptDraw Rapid Draw functionality are greatly effective tools for designing various types of Flowcharts for business processes.

Great part of modern approaches to the database design are based on the use of different versions of ER-models. The important feature of entity-relationship model is that it can be visually represented as a graphical diagram. ER-models and Entity Relationship Diagrams are so popular due to the simplicity and the presentation clarity. The conceptual basis led to their widespread use in CASE-systems, which support automatic design of relational databases. The typical concepts for ER-models are entity, relation and attribute. Relation is a graphically represented association between two entities, that establishes certain rules and all instances of the linked entity types are subject to these rules. In common ER-model this association is always binary. For representing entity-relationship elements, there are used Crow’s foot and Chen notations.
ConceptDraw PRO is a famous Entity Relationship Diagram software for Mac OSX which gives the ability to describe visually the databases with Chen’s and Crow’s Foot notation icons from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution. Read more
Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a single modeling language that is used in software engineering to represent effectively the structure of complex computer systems and software. Such visual models in form of UML diagrams allow simplify the process of software development, let to meet the deadlines, improve the final software products, and also facilitate communication process between the customer, system analysts and programmers. The UML language defines standards for operations, methods of programming languages, and their terminology. The main types of UML diagrams are: Activity diagram, Use Case diagram, Deployment diagram, Statechart diagram, Class diagram, Component diagram, Sequence diagram, Collaboration diagram.
ConceptDraw PRO extended with Rapid UML solution is a professional software that provides perfect possibility of easy designing detailed UML diagrams.

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) is applied for detailed description of structures and high-level (conceptual) design databases using the Chen's and Crow's Foot notations. An ERD represents a diagram constructed mainly of rectangular blocks (for entities, data) linked with relationships. The links between the blocks are used to describe relations between the entities. There are three types of relationships: one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many.
Use the specialized ERD software - ConceptDraw PRO to create the Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) of any degree of complexity with Chen's and Crow's Foot notations. Draw them easily applying the powerful built-in tools and libraries of predesigned ERD vector objects from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. You can also start with one of ready template or sample included to this solution.

Swim Lane Diagrams are the kind of process flow diagrams and effective tool for documenting the business processes required for any business company for its productive work, for easy defining the weak points, reasons of defects, or delays during the process. Swim Lane Diagram is based on the IDEF3 standard and was developed primarily for using in projecting. Its name derives from the use of horizontal or vertical lanes. The blocks that denote the parts of the processes are arranged within definite lanes according to the belonging to responsible worker. So the process of any complexity is visually divided into the parts and represented with indication the responsibility for execution of each part. This significantly facilitates the comprehension of its work.
Use the ConceptDraw PRO software and predesigned vector objects from the Swim Lanes library of Business Process Mapping Solution included to ConceptDraw Solution Park to easy develop Swim Lanes Flowcharts and Diagrams, for modeling and documenting the business processes in a simple and visual graphic form.
