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.

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.

Process mapping helps with sharing business results and reorganizing workflow. In almost every case, after creating a sales process flowchart the steps that are redundant become obvious for a manager. It's easy to find a flowchart examples that will help in developing one for your business.
This sales process flowchart consists of a sequence of steps that represent a simple sale process. Each step is shown graphically by a rectangle representing processing steps or an activity, or a diamond representing a decision. These rectangles are linked by arrows, that indicate the direction of the sales workflow. ConceptDraw Sales Flowcharts solution delivers a the full set of classical flowchart notation symbols, along with sales-related icons and pictograms.

When you are a beginner in software development, you make a lot of mistakes. Developing logical models, or data flow diagrams is a way to see the the whole project and all the processes clearly. And some novices, unfortunately for them, miss modeling stage at the beginning of project life cycle, and get into troubles as the project grows.
This image represents the data flow diagram applying symbols of Yourdon and Coad notation. This DFD depicts the data flow inside an organization department deals with receivables. The icons of standard Yourdon and Coad notation provides possibility to draw professional looking and well- readable DFD for business documentation. This data flow diagram was designed with the help of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and its Data Flow Diagrams solution. The solution delivers three vector graphic libraries including elements of Yourdon and Coad and Gane-Sarson notations.

UML Deployment Diagram depicts the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes (nodes are the existing hardware components, artifacts are the software components running on each node); and how the different pieces are connected.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with UML deployment diagram templates, samples and stencil library from Rapid UML solution to model the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes of your software system.

Process Flow Chart is a visual diagram which shows the processes and relationships between the major components in a system, and uses for this the special process flow chart symbols: special shapes to represent different types of actions and process steps, lines and arrows to represent relationships and sequence of steps. It often named process flow diagram, it use colored flowchart symbols.
It is incredibly convenient to use the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park for designing professional looking Process Flow Charts.

The UML diagram is a powerful tool which lets visually represent all system's components, the interactions between them and relationships with external user interface.
The Rapid UML solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software offers diversity of UML flowchart symbols for drawing all types of UML diagrams.

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.

Big and complex projects sometimes need some simplification of plans and schedules. That's why Program Evaluation and Review Technique was invented and first implemented in 1958. You can create PERT diagrams effortlessly with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and share them with your colleagues.
Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) is a method that is used to assess and analyze projects. PERT is a valuable tool for the project management practice. PERT gives an assessment and analysis of the time needed to the project completion. A PERT chart is a visual tool that delivers a graphical view of a project timeline. It is used to display the sequences and dependences of project tasks necessary to complete a project. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM delivers the possibility to build a PERT along with other diagrams applied to assist management process by using its Seven Management and Planning Tools solution.
