Agile methodology is a series of approaches to software development and ways of managing small IT development teams and projects. It is effective methodology and excellent alternative to waterfall and traditional sequential development.
Agile is effective methodology aimed at the minimization risks by division a development process on the series of short cycles called iterations, that typically last 2-3 weeks. At the end of each iteration, the team executes the reevaluation the priorities of development. Preferring direct communication face-to-face, the agile methods reduce the amount of written documentation in comparison with other methods.
There are few agile methodologies, the most popular are:
- Dynamic systems development method (DSDM) - an iterative and incremental approach of software development which includes continuous customers involvement;
- Feature-driven development (FDD) is a lightweight methodology the main goal of which is to develop of real, working software in a set time frame;
- Extreme programming (XP) - is a method which lets improve software development and create software capable to effectively respond to the changing requirements;
- Scrum - the most popular and widely used agile development method which is a flexible development strategy when a team works as a unit for achievement a common goal.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with SCRUM Workflow solution from the Project Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software, ideal for quick and easy designing various diagrams, charts, mind maps and schematics illustrating software development using Agile methodologies, and in particular Scrum methodology.
Example 1. Agile Methodology

In software engineering, it is important to understand how the system would cooperate with external sources, like data sources. To give this information a visual representation, data flow diagrams (DFD) were used for years. The entire system is usually divided into smaller ones, and all of them process data flows in appropriate ways.
The visualizing business processes which engages the data transfer, is commonly preformed using DFDs (data flow diagrams). DFD is used to show the data flow processing and transformation. This DFD represents the electronic system of a customer purchase. It was created using Gane/Sarson notation. Data flow diagrams helps you to sort through and clarify transferring process making it available for analysis, and representation. ConceptDraw DFD solution introduces the vector library, containing the full set of icons from DFD notations.

Electrical plan is a document that is developed during the first stage of the building design. This scheme is composed of conventional images or symbols of components that operate by means of electric energy. To simplify the creation of these schemes you can use house electrical plan software, which will not require a long additional training to understand how to use it. You only need to install the necessary software ant it’s libraries and you’ll have one less problem during the building projection.
Any building contains a number of electrical systems, including switches, fixtures, outlets and other lightening equipment. All these should be depicted in a building electrical plans and included to general building documentation. This home electrical plan displays electrical and telecommunication devices placed to a home floor plan. On the plan, each electrical device is referenced with the proper symbol. Electrical symbols are used for universal recognition of the building plan by different persons who will be working on the construction. Not all possible electric symbols used on a certain plan, so the symbols used in the current home plan are included to a legend. The electrical home plan may be added as a separate document to a complete set of building plans.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the Flowchart on that it is displayed the process of the determination the permissibility according the Access Copyright license. The diamonds represent the decision points. Inside the diamonds are the questions that need the answer yes/no. It is necessary to answer on the question, make the decision that will determine the next step.

The Workflow diagrams are the specialized type of flowcharts which allow to visualize any sorts of step-by-step processes. They are usually created as flowcharts, with objects that represent in a simple visual manner the steps in the process connected by arrows that indicate the next step. The ability easily create Workflow diagrams visually describing the tasks, documents associated with the tasks, people which are responsible for execution at each stage of workflow is made possible with Workflow Diagrams solution. This solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with a Workflow Diagram library that contains large collection of predesigned workflow flowchart symbols.
