Control and Information Architecture Diagrams (CIAD)
with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

One of the three main constituents of any enterprise is the Control and Information Architecture. The rest two are Production facilities and People and Organization. The Control and Information Architecture in big organizations can be sufficiently complicated, therefore to facilitate the perception, study and analysis of this architecture the creation of diagrams which describe it in the form of graphical schemes is worthwhile. As a rule, the Control and Information Architecture Diagrams (CIAD) present the diagram series where each subsequent diagram has the higher degree of the detail elaboration. On the first level the general philosophy of the Control and Information Architecture in organization is described. Further, there can be created network diagrams presenting physical structure of data processing in organization and diagrams of entities showing the logic of data processing.

The purpose of CIAD is to present in the form of graphical schemes all objects in organization, which process data and connections between them, and also to denote the direction and consequence of data processing. CIAD show these processes analogously to Process Flow Diagrams (PFD) and similarly to PFD they are created on the projection stage.

On creation of CIAD the following should be considered:

  • On the diagram there should be presented all main calculating systems and objects which process data and lines of connections and form the organization data network.
  • Lines of connections should differ in thickness and color depending on the carrying capacity.
  • The description of the level of detailed elaboration which is described in the diagram should be presented.
  • Additional systems do not displayed on the diagram but can be mentioned in it.

With the development of technologies and computer networks the new kind of CIAD has appeared. More detailed CIAD began to present Control and Information Network Diagram (CIND) diagrams. These diagrams in many respects are similar to CIAD but they are built on the level of servers and include the same elements as CIAD and besides them they include:

  • All the main calculating servers
  • Indications of speeds of connections’ line and connections protocols
  • Indications of all commutating devices
  • Additional calculating systems
  • All data depositories

Electrical Symbols — Transmission Paths →

Variable delay elements are often used to manipulate the rising or falling edges of the clock or any other signal in integrated circuits. Delay elements are also used in delay locked loops and in defining a time reference for the movement of data within those systems. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Transmission Paths *

Organizational Chart Template →

An orgchart shows how the responsibilities are divided between departments. It’s enough to have just one look on a proper organizational chart template to understand the idea and how it works. To understand how it’s made you should use a diagramming software. This organizational diagram illustrates the possibilities of using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to create orgcharts. This sample represents the common project management company. The chart shows the structure of devisions in the company, and the interaction between them. Communication between departments imply a certain structure affiliation and reporting. At the head of the company - President. This diagram was created using ConceptDraw solution for designing Organizational charts of any structure and complexity.Organizational Chart Template *
