## 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.

"A profile diagram operates at the metamodel level to show stereotypes as classes with the <> stereotype, and profiles as packages with the <> stereotype. The extension relation (solid line with closed, filled arrowhead) indicates what metamodel element a given stereotype is extending." [Profile diagram. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Internal block diagram" contains 22 SysML symbols.

Use it to design your internal block diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.

"Internal Block Diagram

An internal block diagram is based on the UML composite structure diagram, with restrictions and extensions as defined

by SysML. ...

Property types

Four general categories of properties of blocks are recognized in SysML: parts, references, value properties, and

constraint properties. ... A part or value property is always shown on an internal block diagram with a solid-outline box. A reference property is shown by a dashed-outline box, consistent with UML. Ports are special cases of properties, and have a variety of notations... Constraint properties and their parameters also have their own notations... " [www.omg.org/spec/SysML/1.3/PDF]

Use it for object-oriented modeling of your bank information system.

"A sequence diagram shows, as parallel vertical lines (lifelines), different processes or objects that live simultaneously, and, as horizontal arrows, the messages exchanged between them, in the order in which they occur. This allows the specification of simple runtime scenarios in a graphical manner.

Diagram building blocks.

If the lifeline is that of an object, it demonstrates a role. Leaving the instance name blank can represent anonymous and unnamed instances.

Messages, written with horizontal arrows with the message name written above them, display interaction. Solid arrow heads represent synchronous calls, open arrow heads represent asynchronous messages, and dashed lines represent reply messages. ...

Activation boxes, or method-call boxes, are opaque rectangles drawn on top of lifelines to represent that processes are being performed in response to the message (ExecutionSpecifications in UML).

Objects calling methods on themselves use messages and add new activation boxes on top of any others to indicate a further level of processing.

When an object is destroyed (removed from memory), an X is drawn on top of the lifeline, and the dashed line ceases to be drawn below it ...

A message sent from outside the diagram can be represented by a message originating from a filled-in circle (found message in UML) or from a border of the sequence diagram (gate in UML)." [Sequence diagram. Wikipedia]

Messages, written with horizontal arrows with the message name written above them, display interaction. Solid arrow heads represent synchronous calls, open arrow heads represent asynchronous messages, and dashed lines represent reply messages. If a caller sends a synchronous message, it must wait until the message is done, such as invoking a subroutine. If a caller sends an asynchronous message, it can continue processing and doesnâ€™t have to wait for a response. Asynchronous calls are present in multithreaded applications and in message-oriented middleware. Activation boxes, or method-call boxes, are opaque rectangles drawn on top of lifelines to represent that processes are being performed in response to the message (ExecutionSpecifications in UML).

Objects calling methods on themselves use messages and add new activation boxes on top of any others to indicate a further level of processing.

When an object is destroyed (removed from memory), an X is drawn on top of the lifeline, and the dashed line ceases to be drawn below it (this is not the case in the first example though). It should be the result of a message, either from the object itself, or another.

Mathematics is an exact science, which studies the values, spatial forms and quantitative relations. It is a science, in which is built large number of various diagrams, charts and graphs that present the material in a clear, visual and colorful form, help to analyze the information and to make certain conclusions. A diagram is a graphical representation of data using the linear segments or geometric shapes, which allows to evaluate the ratio of several values. Depending on the types of solved tasks are used the diagrams of different kinds. A graph is a diagram that shows quantitative dependencies of various processes using the curves.

## How to Draw Geometric Shapes in ConceptDraw PRO

Knowledge of geometry grants people good logic, abstract and spatial thinking skills. The object of study of geometry are the size, shape and position, the 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. Geometry is related to many other areas in math, and is used daily by engineers, architects, designers and many other professionals. Today, the objects of geometry are not only shapes and solids. It deals with properties and relationships and looks much more about analysis and reasoning. Geometry drawings can be helpful when you study the geometry, or need to illustrate the some investigation related to geometry. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw plane and solid geometry shapes quickly and easily. Read more- Mathematical Diagrams | Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning ...
