Data Flow Diagram Examples
Data flow diagrams (DFDs) reveal relationships among and between the various components in a program or system. DFDs are an important technique for modeling a system’s high-level detail by showing how input data is transformed to output results through a sequence of functional transformations.
DFDs consist of four major components:
- data stores,
Example 1. Data Flow Diagram Symbols
The symbols used to depict how these components interact in a system are simple and easy to understand.
A Data flow diagrams used for:
- Graphical representation of the "flow" of data through an information system
- Modeling process aspects
- An overview of the system
- For the visualization of data processing
- Structured design

The Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram, Fishbone diagram — all they are the names of one and the same visual method for working with causal connections. Originally invented by Kaoru Ishikawa to control the process quality, the Ishikawa diagram is well proven in other fields of management and personal scheduling, events planning, time management. It is a chart in the form of a fish, whose head is a problem, the fins are variants for its causes.
To design easily the Fishbone diagram, you can use a special ConceptDraw DIAGRAM vector graphic and diagramming software which contains the powerful tools for Fishbone diagram problem solving offered by Fishbone Diagrams solution for the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
