Workflow Diagram Symbols

Workflow diagrams is the acknowledged method to draw the process flow which have concerted set of flowchart symbols you use for depicting work process steps or relations. There are many cases when you need inhance your workflow diagram to be professionally looking and add some rich illustrative graphic. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Workflow solution delivers rich set of workflow diagram symbols helps you make your workflow better-suited for presentations.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a professional drawing software for workflow diagram design. The part of this software is the Workflow Diagrams solution that adds library of vector stencils for providing a set of tools and features that allow users to accurately diagram workflow scenarios.

Example 1. Workflow diagram symbols

Workflow diagram lets to represent the transferring of data, documents, and tasks during performance of a work process, helps show relashionships between process steps and understand the complete process, identify critical stages and problem areas. The Workflow Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with samples, templates and library of instantly recognizable vector stencils for effectively drawing Workflow diagrams.

Example 2. Business Workflow Diagram

Use workflow flowcharts to analyze the work processes, to show the path of the tasks, the responsible persons and the associated documents, to identify required resources, to optimize a workflow, and to discover its inherent weak points.

Follow the next steps to design any Workflow Diagram:

  • add desired workflow objects from the Workflow Diagram library by dragging them from the Work Flow Diagram library to the document page;

    Adding Workflow Objects

    Example 3. Adding Workflow Objects

  • arrange the objects and connect them with arrows using the connector tools from the ConceptDraw's Home toolbar, it is convenient to use the Smart connector and drag the connector from one connect dot to another;

    Example 4. Connecting Objects

  • type the text, resize the objects if needed and recolor connectors according to your taste.

    Example 5. Workflow Diagram - Taxi Service

Another way is to start with ready Workflow Diagram template also included to Workflow Diagrams solution and offered by ConceptDraw STORE. When modifying template, use also symbols from the variety offered by Workflow Diagrams library to represent different types of actions and the steps in a workflow, among them are the objects of persons, accounting, bank, accounts receivable and payable, customer service, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, quality assurance, and more others.

Workflow Flowchart Solution

Example 6. Workflow Diagram Solution (Mac OS X and Windows)

When it comes to creating a Workflow Diagram, it's important to use software that is capable of describing a wide range of processes, using easily recognizable techniques and graphical notation. An ideal drawing platform will utilize functions that can cope with the output of a high volume of processes, that may change rapidly from development to implementation stages. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, with the extended functionality of the Workflow Diagrams solution, is the ideal medium for creating even the most complex designs of this type.

System Design →

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM system design software is a product of CS Odessa that was developed especially for making it much simpler to create all the needed diagrams, charts, flowcharts, schemes and other drawings when there is such a need in it. Having the Specification and Description Language (SDL) solution installed from the ConceptDraw STORE application may be another bonus to any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software’s user as it offers both stencil libraries with the design elements and the pre-made examples of the diagrams, such as the SDL ones.System Design *

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) →

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.Data Flow Diagram (DFD) *
