Entity Relationship Diagram - ERD - Software for Design Crows Foot ER Diagrams

Entity Relationship Diagram - ERD - Software for Design Crows Foot ER Diagrams

ER-model is a data model which lets describe the conceptual schemes in a specific subject area. It can help to highlight the key entities and specify relationships that can be established between these entities. During the database design, it is realized the transformation of ER model into certain database scheme based on the chosen data model (relational, object, network, etc.). There are used two notations for ERDs: Crow's Foot and Chen's. Crow's Foot notation proposed by Gordon Everest represents the entity by rectangle containing its name (name must be unique within this model), and relation - by the line which links two entities involved in relationship. The relationship's plurality is graphically indicated by a "plug" on the end of the link, the optionality - by a circle. Entity-Relationship Diagrams based on Crow's Foot notation can be easily drawn using the ConceptDraw PRO. Extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution, it is the best ERD diagrams software with powerful tools and ready design elements for Crow's Foot and Chen notations. Read more

Entity Relationship Diagram Examples

Creation of Entity-Relationship (ER) model is a visual representation the structure of a business database, where data equates to entities or objects, which are linked by defined relationships expressing dependencies and requirements. By the nature, the ER model is an abstract visualization, a first step in design process towards creating a logical and functional database. ConceptDraw PRO professional software gives the ability to effectively describe a database using the Entity-Relationship model. Included to ConceptDraw Solution Park, the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution contains the set of predesigned vector icons advocated by Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations that both can be used for data modeling and describing a database. Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution includes also helpful templates and incredibly large collection of varied Entity Relationship Diagram examples and samples offered at ConceptDraw STORE. Each of them can be used to develop your own model of a database of arbitrary complexity. Read more

Developing Entity Relationship Diagrams

When you need to visually represent the structure of relational database, Entity relationship diagram (ERD) is a type of diagram for that case. Most entity-relationship diagrams can be built with objects from Flowchart solution or ERD Solution which contains inbuilt templates. Follow these steps to create your own custom ERD diagram. Don't be frightened if it looks complex, ConceptDraw PRO makes it easy to create an ERD, and hundreds of other diagrams, in minutes. Read more

Data Modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram

Building Drawing Software for Design School Layout

Classroom is the place where the pupils spend most of time, so it must to attract, arouse the interest, to be comfortable that the pupils wanted to go here and to stay longer. The psychologists say that the look of a class greatly affects the children. The first important characteristic is a color, the correct choice of color palette for the training premise helps adjust pupils and students on the right mood, promotes a thinking, activity, creativity and concentration. The most favorable colors are yellow, peach, beige, they attract attention and stimulate mental activity. As for the desks and other furniture, they should to be safe, quality, and to be arranged taking in account the room's size, lighting and age of pupils. For the primary classes are perfectly suited various illustrations on the walls. Use ConceptDraw PRO building drawing software tools and vector design elements from School and Training Plans solution for development School layouts and floor plans, furniture and equipment plans for School or Training offices, Design plans for classrooms, auditoriums and cabinets.

This entity-relationship diagram (ERD) sample shows an entity-relationship model for a school. It was designed on the base of the Wikimedia Commons file: Entity-Relationship-Modell.svg. [commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Entity-Relationship-Modell.svg]
"An entity–relationship model (ER model) describes inter-related things of interest in a specific domain of knowledge. An ER model is composed of entity types (which classify the things of interest) and specifies relationships that can exist between instances of those entity types.
In software engineering an ER model is commonly formed to represent things that a business needs to remember in order to perform business processes. Consequently, the ER model becomes an abstract data model that defines a data or information structure that can be implemented in a database, typically a relational database." [Entity–relationship model. Wikipedia]
