Data Flow Diagram Software
When studying a business process or system involving the transfer of data, it is common to use a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) to visualize how data are processed. Being initially used exclusively in regards to the flow of data through a computer system, now DFDs are employed as the business modeling tools. They are applied to describe the business events and interactions, or physical systems involving data storage and transfer.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Data Flow Diagram software thanks to the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a Mac OS X and Windows software. Numerous vector stencils, samples and templates created by designers are included in the basic package. This is classic flowchart maker which exactly follows the industry standards using flowchart symbols geathered during a ten years into solution park.

The vector stencils libraries: Block Diagrams, Blocks with Perspective, Callouts, Connectors, Raised Blocks from the solution Block Diagrams contain specific block diagram symbols such as arrows, input/output symbols, start/end symbols, processing symbols, conditional symbols, commenting symbols, callouts, connectors, etc. for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software. The Block Diagrams solution is contained in a "Diagrams" area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Use the libraries from the Block Diagrams solution to draw block diagrams for your business documents, presentations and websites in a few minutes.

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams.
This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.

To maintain big and complex mechanical systems, you need an appropriate education and tools. It’s needless to say that mechanical drawing is important part of any industrial project. There are a lot of standard symbols depicting valves, pumps, motors, etc.
This drawing illustrates the content of the Fluid Power Equipment library provided by the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. The solution is composed from the 8 libraries, containing about 500 elements related to mechanical engineering visualization. it will be helpful for drawing various schemes, charts and blueprints of pneumatic, and hydraulic equipment or other drawing related mechanical engineering. All drawings can be freely resized without loss of quality due to the vector graphics components of its facilities.

The UML diagrams in this Solution are divided into three broad categories: Structure Diagrams; Behavior Diagrams; Interaction Diagrams.
The 13 diagrams contained in the Rapid UML Solution offer an essential framework for systems analysts and software architects to create the diagrams they need to model processes from the conceptual level on through to project completion.

When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.

Data base diagrams describes inter-related data and tables. It describes roles and relationships, internal and external dependencies, data exchange conventions and structures of knowledge domain.
ConceptDraw Software provides number of data-base chart libraries including major 49 vector symbols. Use these DFD flowchart symbol libraries to design data-base structure and models, use it to design data base process-oriented models, or simple data-oriented models. The are special drawing tools for making data flowcharts, data process diagrams, structured analysis diagrams, and information flow diagrams.
