Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram) DFD Example

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a methodology of graphical structural analysis and information systems design, which describes the sources external in respect to the system, recipients of data, logical functions, data flows and data stores that are accessed. DFDs allow to identify relationships between various system's components and are effectively used in business analysis and information systems analysis. They are useful for system’s high-level details modeling, to show how the input data are transformed to output results via the sequence of functional transformations. For description of DFD diagrams are uses two notations — Yourdon and Gane-Sarson, which differ in syntax. Online Store DFD example illustrates the Data Flow Diagram for online store, the interactions between Customers, Visitors, Sellers, depicts User databases and the flows of Website Information. ConceptDraw PRO enhanced with Data Flow Diagrams solution lets you to draw clear and simple example of DFD for Online Store using special libraries of predesigned DFD symbols. Read more

Data Flow Diagrams

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a special chart type which lets graphically illustrate the "flow" of data through an information system. So the Data Flow Diagrams can be successfully used for visualization of data processing or structured design, for creation an overview of the system, for business process modeling, for exploring the high-level design in terms of data flows and documenting the major data flows. Inclusion of powerful Data Flow Diagrams solution to the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park makes the ConceptDraw PRO a beneficial data flow diagramming software and supplies it with numerous collection of quick-start templates, professionaly designed samples, and extensive range of ready-for-use vector objects consisting the Data Flow Diagrams, Gane-Sarson Notation, and Yourdon and Coad Notation libraries. Use the ConceptDraw PRO application to design easy and quickly the Data Flow Diagrams including the data storages, data flows, external entities, functional transforms, control transforms and signals.

Data Flow Diagram Software

Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) are successfully used when studying the business processes or systems that involve the transfer of data. They are a visual way to represent the data processing, to model and visualize the flow of data through a computer system and functional requirements for a designed system. They are the good business modeling tool to describe the business events and interactions, the physical systems involving the storage and transfer of data. ConceptDraw PRO supplied with Data Flow Diagrams solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a modern and powerful data flow diagram software. This solution offers large set of predesigned DFD vector objects, grouped to three libraries: Data Flow Diagrams, Gane-Sarson Notation, and Yourdon and Coad Notation. All they and also collection of DFD samples and built-in templates make a good base for ConceptDraw PRO users, providing them all conditions for easy creation the Data Flow Diagrams and Data Flow Models of any complexity.

The Flowcharts are widespread in various fields and include the multitude of types. They are dedicated to representation the algorithms, processes, workflows of any complexity in a clear and intuitive format. The Flowcharts are commonly used in software development as a visual tool for illustration algorithms and logic of computer programs, in business for illustration business scenarios, in education, and so on. For drawing the Flowchart are used the special object blocks, among them rectangle or box used to represent an activity or step, rounded box or oval to depict Start / End, diamond to represent the decision point (involves the branching yes/no), circle used to represent the point of connection, parallelogram to represent the Input / Output, and some others. With ConceptDraw PRO including Flowcharts solution it is easy to create professional-looking Flowchart diagrams of any complexity and any degree of detailing. Succeed in drawing the Flowcharts using quick-start templates, predesigned samples and extensive libraries of ready-made flowchart symbols, blocks and icons. Read more

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

Flowchart Definition

Flowchart definition - A Flowchart is a diagram that graphically represents the structure of the system, the flow of steps in a process, algorithm, or the sequence of steps and decisions for execution a process or solution a problem. For depiction the steps there are used specific shapes and graphic symbols which are linked by lines and directional arrows. The main standard shapes are rectangle or box, rounded box, diamond, circle. A Flowchart is a convenient way to observe the follow the process from beginning to end, it lets improve the work of process, highlight the key elements and detach not essential or even excessive steps. The Flowcharts can represent different levels of detail: High-Level Flowchart, Detailed Flowchart, and Deployment or Matrix Flowchart. They are incredibly useful for programmers when developing the programs of any complexity and on any high level language. Create your own Flowcharts using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software and powerful tools of Flowcharts solution from "Diagrams" area. Read more
