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.

UML Class Diagram Notation →

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system. The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them.UML Class Diagram Notation *

Flow chart Example. Warehouse Flowchart →

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.Warehouse Flowchart

DFD Library — Design elements →

Data Flow Diagram is used to depict the flow of data through the system, where it enters and exits the system, as well as where it is stored. To simplify the process of drawing a data flow diagram (DFD), ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a DFD Library - design elements that will help you make your diagram as informative, streamlined and understandable as possible. Data flow diagrams are useful to create a general overview of the system or to document major data flows. Here are the library of symbols used in data flow diagrams (DFD). Data Flow diagrams are graphic means of business process visualization. Any business process may involve the data transfer. It can be easily shown using data flow diagrams. DFDs are used to represent the processing and transformation of data within a business process. One can find out the Vector library of DFD symbols, that is a component of ConceptDraw solution for Data Flow Diagramming and is welcome to use in as addition to the common Conceptdraw DIAGRAM diagramming facilities.DFD Library — Design elements *
