Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Flowcharts are the best for visually representation the business processes and the flow of a custom-order process through various departments within an organization. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts solution offers the full set of predesigned basic flowchart symbols which are gathered at two libraries: Flowchart and Flowcharts Rapid Draw. Among them are: process, terminator, decision, data, document, display, manual loop, and many other specific symbols. The meaning for each symbol offered by ConceptDraw gives the presentation about their proposed use in professional Flowcharts for business and technical processes, software algorithms, well-developed structures of web sites, Workflow diagrams, Process flow diagram and correlation in developing on-line instructional projects or business process system. Use of ready flow chart symbols in diagrams is incredibly useful - you need simply drag desired from the libraries to your document and arrange them in required order. There are a few serious alternatives to Visio for Mac, one of them is ConceptDraw PRO. It is one of the main contender with the most similar features and capabilities. Read more

The vector stencils library "Activity diagram" contains 47 symbols.
Use it to design your SysML activity diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Activity diagrams are constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected with arrows. The most important shape types:
- rounded rectangles represent actions;
- diamonds represent decisions;
- bars represent the start (split) or end (join) of concurrent activities;
- a black circle represents the start (initial state) of the workflow;
- an encircled black circle represents the end (final state).
Arrows run from the start towards the end and represent the order in which activities happen." [Activity diagram. Wikipedia]

Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols

The semantic modeling method nowadays is successfully applied in database structure design. It is effective method of modeling the data structures, which is based on the meaning of these data. As a tool of semantic modeling, there are used different types of Entity-Relationship Diagrams. Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is applied to visually and clearly represent a structure of a business database. The main components of ERDs are: entity, relation and attributes. An entity is a class of similar objects in the model, each entity is depicted in the form of rectangle and has the name expressed by a noun. Relation is shown in the form of non-directional line that connects two entities. There are several notation styles used for ERDs: information engineering style, Chen style, Bachman style, Martin Style. The Entity Relationship Diagram symbols used for professional ERD drawing are predesigned by professionals and collected in the libraries of the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for ConceptDraw PRO software.

The vector stencils library "Bank UML activity diagram" contains 32 shapes of UML activity diagram.
Use it for object-oriented modeling of your bank information system.
"Activity diagrams are constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected with arrows. The most important shape types:
* rounded rectangles represent actions;
* diamonds represent decisions;
* bars represent the start (split) or end (join) of concurrent activities;
* a black circle represents the start (initial state) of the workflow;
* an encircled black circle represents the end (final state).
Arrows run from the start towards the end and represent the order in which activities happen.
Activity diagrams may be regarded as a form of flowchart. Typical flowchart techniques lack constructs for expressing concurrency. However, the join and split symbols in activity diagrams only resolve this for simple cases; the meaning of the model is not clear when they are arbitrarily combined with decisions or loops.
While in UML 1.x, activity diagrams were a specialized form of state diagrams, in UML 2.x, the activity diagrams were reformalized to be based on Petri net-like semantics, increasing the scope of situations that can be modeled using activity diagrams. These changes cause many UML 1.x activity diagrams to be interpreted differently in UML 2.x." [Activity diagram. Wikipedia]

Data Flow Diagram Symbols. DFD Library

Data Flow Diagrams graphically represent the information transfers and process steps of a system. They visually depict how data are processed by a system in terms of inputs and outputs, how occurs the input in a system, how the data flow through an information system and where they are stored, and how occurs output from the system. DFDs give the overview of the system and models the processes aspects, they are maintained with other methods of structured systems analysis. The main goal of DFDs is achievement of understanding between developers and users. For their construction are used two notations - Gane-Sarson and Yourdon, each of them uses its own set of symbols. Data Flow Diagrams solution from Software Development area extends the ConceptDraw PRO software with templates, samples, and predesigned libraries of data flow diagram symbols for both notations, allowing you easy design the process-oriented and data-oriented models, draw the Data Flow Diagrams, Data Flowcharts, Data Process Diagrams, Information Flow Diagrams, Structured Analysis Diagrams, etc. Read more
"A swim lane (or swimlane) is a visual element used in process flow diagrams, or flowcharts, that visually distinguishes responsibilities for sub-processes of a business process. Swim lanes may be arranged either horizontally or vertically. In the accompanying example, the swimlanes are named Customer, Sales, Contracts, Legal, and Fulfillment, and are arranged vertically. ...
When used to diagram a business process that involves more than one department, swimlanes often serve to clarify not only the steps and who is responsible for each one, but also how delays, mistakes or cheating are most likely to occur.
Many process modeling methodologies utilize the concept of swimlanes, as a mechanism to organize activities into separate visual categories in order to illustrate different functional capabilities or responsibilities (organisational roles). Swimlanes are used in Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and Unified Modeling Language activity diagram modeling methodologies." [Swim lane. Wikipedia]
