Flowcharts and Data flow diagrams

Data Flow Sample

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a perfect tool for drawing various types of flowcharts and dataflow diagrams such as audit flowcharts, data flow diagrams, cause & effect diagrams, cross-functional flowcharts, Opportunity Flowchart, Deployment Flowchart and Process Flowchart.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers task-specific templates, libraries of flowcharting shapes, smart connectors etc. to illustrate complex processes, procedures and information exchange.

Database and ERD diagramming

Thanks to an extensive set of library objects such as entities, links, items, attributes, users, types, captions, inheritance, references, boundaries, events, clouds etc ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a perfect tool for database design and ERD diagramming.

You can also use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to draw Chen ERD, Database model diagram, Express-G, Martin ERD, ORD Diagram and a lot more.

Sample Database Layout

With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can visually design schemas for leading clients/servers and desktop databases. By graphically showing the relationships between information tables stored in the database a database diagram helps to ensure that the database you are designing is accurate, complete and efficient. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to visually create Entity Relationship diagrams (ERD) for various database systems.

The software product supports ODBC-compatible databases (Oracle, MS SQL, InterBase, MySQL, MS Access, Firebird and others). The built-in scripting language allows to connect to ODBC-compatible databases and automatically generate the database structure (reverse engineering of the database structure).

Moreover, data flow between tables can also be easily described by creating appropriate Data Flow Diagrams (DFD).

Cross-DBMS target compatibility allows you to design once and use for all.

Creating Visualization Solutions

Using the built-in scripting language, database connectivity, shape parameter table, support of shape custom properties, XML format allows to use ConceptDraw to visualize data from various applications and data sources. With the introduction of ConceptDraw Basic technology ConceptDraw becomes one of the most powerful platforms for your custom visual solutions.

How To use House Electrical Plan Software →

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.House Electrical Plan Software
