Business Process Modeling Notation
The key to an effective and smoothly run business is the efficiency and cohesive integration of its business processes. A business process describes the steps taken to complete any objective, task or service within a business. Processes can be divided into three distinct categories:
- Management processes — processes that describe business strategy and organizational structure.
- Operational processes — interaction between business and customer, core business activity.
- Supporting processes — e.g. health and safety, accounting, recruitment.
The Business Process Diagram solution gives you the ability to swiftly specify business processes based on BPMN 2.0.

A collaboration (global) business process depicts the interactions between two or more business entities. A collaboration process contains two or more pools and can be shown as two or more public business processes communicating with each other.
The Business Process Diagram solution supports BPMN 2.0 and the creation of both simple and complex (nested) models of processes. These process diagrams can then be printed or converted to a web-page, PDF or PowerPoint presentation.
Business Process Diagrams:
- Process Charts,
- IDEF0 and IDEF2,
- Gantt Charts,
- Business Process Modeling,
- Audit and Opportunity Flowcharts
- and Mind Maps (presentations, meeting agendas).

Database design is an important part of any project, as databases become more and more complex nowadays. To make the model more representative, entity relationship diagrams are widely used in software engineering area. These diagrams show sets of entities as rectangles connected via lines labeled with their cardinalities.
This an example of the ER-diagram developed to store information regarding some online role-playing game. It includes three main elements of ER diagram: entities, relationships and attributes. The entities, attributes and relationships on this ER-diagram is depicted according to the Chen's notation. Chen's notation for Entity Relationship diagrams admits using of rectangles to depict entities, ovals for attributes and ,at least, diamonds to show relationships. ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagrams solution was applied as ERD software to create this diagram.

Database structures are usually described by ER-diagrams which represents entities as boxes with lines-connections between them. You can create any entity-relationship diagram (ERD) by means of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using ready-to-use templates and special libraries containing all the needed symbols and shapes. Creating a model for your database from now on can take just a few minutes.
ERD (entity relationship diagram) designed to show the logical structure of databases. It intended to depict the relationships between data components (entities). ERDs are a popular tool for software engineers and architects. Using ERD they can manage the every aspect of database design. Also ERD can be used as guidelines for testing and communications before software release. This diagram represents the file reference system of the WordPress web platform. Because entity relationship diagrams have such a broad application area through the prevalence of database technology, it can be applied for a wide range of users.

Both Crow’s Foot and Chen’s notations are used to build database models. Each of them has its’ own features, and if you use a proper entity relationship diagram software, you’ll be able to create diagrams of any notation. Database model with clearly defined entities and relationships between them facilitates further work greatly.
This ERD represents the model of Employee Certification Entity. The entity-relationship diagram is a visual instrument of database software development. It is used to structure data and to define the relationships between structured data groups. This ERD was designed with a help of ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution. The solution supports the both basic ERD notations used to describe the structure of database: Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations.

Plumbing systems are very important for any manufacture, and it's a good practice to have a clear scheme of that system. To create one, you should use a piping and instrumentation diagram software with a possibility to save files in vector format, so you can print them without quality loss. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a great tool for creating diagrams, and you don't need to be very experienced to use it efficiently.
This example of Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) depicts a scheme that illustrates the physical sequence and functional communications of piping, instrumentation and plumbing equipment components of a typical food trailer.
Seeking to avoid health troubles in a mobile food service , the plumbing demands for food trailers must be considered accurately. This P&ID shows all of piping including a basic set of piping system components along with multiple sinks, extra water heaters and other elements to meet health guidelines.
