Data Flow Diagrams
Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) are graphical representations of the "flow" of data through an information system. Data flow diagrams can be used for the visualization of data processing.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Data Flow Diagrams Solution is a powerful data flow diagramming application that allows you quickly create any Data Flow Diagrams including the data storages, external entities, functional transforms, data flows, as well as control transforms and signals.
Example 1. Data Flow Diagrams - DFD Process of account receivable
Data Flow Diagrams Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park includes a large set of templates and samples. You can find and open any of them from ConceptDraw STORE.
ConceptDraw STORE lets you navigate through ConceptDraw Solution Park, access libraries, templates and samples directly from it, and also manage downloads and updates.
Example 2. Data Flow Diagrams Solution in ConceptDraw STORE
Use also 3 libraries from Data Flow Diagrams Solution:
- Data Flow Diagrams Library
- Gane-Sarson Notation Library
- Yourdon and Coad Notation Library
with extensive range of necessary objects ready-made to drag-and-drop.
Example 3. Data Flow Diagrams - DFD Ceres
This example was created using the tools of Data Flow Diagrams Solution and shows the DFD Ceres. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating it in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM This example is professional looking and can be successfully used in various presentations, business documents, on websites.
Use Data Flow Diagrams solution for designing your own Data Flow Diagrams quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Data Flow Diagrams Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.

Using ConceptDraw you will be able to create bubble diagrams from the ready ConceptDraw library objects or make your own objects. The created diagram can be saved and edited, objects can be moved and links between them will be automatically repainted after object moving because of using the ConceptDraw connectors.

The activity of any organization is more or less branchy network of processes. The description of these processes is a hard technical task which requires definite methodology and standards.
According to the IDEF0 standard any process can be described in the form of a block (Activity Box) which has inputs and outputs. The process consists in transformation of inputs into outputs under the influence of the management and in the presence of necessary resources. Outputs of the given process later on can be either inputs for the next process or resources, or management means.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the 'Diagrams' area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful tool for drawing Flow Charts of any complexity you need. Irrespective of whether you want to draw a Simple Flow Chart or large complex Flow Diagram, you estimate to do it without efforts thanks to the extensive drawing tools of Flowcharts solution, there are professional flowchart symbols and basic flowchart symbols. This sample shows the Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) that is the optimization algorithm.

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.
