Data structure diagram with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
Data structure diagram (DSD) is intended for description of conceptual models of data (concepts and connections between them) in the graphic format for more obviousness. Data structure diagram includes entities description, connections between them and obligatory conditions and requirements which connect them.
Data structure diagram is a subspecies of the “entity-relationship” diagram type (ERD).
Entities in data structure diagrams are presented in the form of rectangles or rounded rectangles, and connections between them in the form of arrows. The description of an entity is usually placed inside the rectangle, which denotes the entity. The text description of the entity requirements connecting entities is placed near the line which denotes the connection between entities. The description of connection types between entities (one-to-one, one-to-many, etc.) can be different in different notations and differs with the arrow type on the line of connection between entities. The most famous are notations of DeMarco, Jackson and Yourdon.
DSD also used for hierarchical presentation of the complicated entity. Such data structure diagram is usually created in the result of entity decomposition to the set level of detailed elaboration and presented as a tree.
The difference of the data structure diagram from the “entity- relationship” diagram is that DSD more completely defines connections and relations between elements of entities whereas ERD defines connections between entities.

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps.
Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.

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.

Communication via Internet nowadays is almost irreplaceable part of lifestyle. It’s needless to say that providing that communication is not a piece of cake, and network diagram software is useful for representing all the interconnections between network devices. These diagrams are also helpful for educational purposes.
This drawing depicts the network topology of the sample web studio. This is a physical type of network diagram. It is depicting the network, end-user equipment and connections between them. The given network has combined the both star and mesh network topology features. This diagram is a tool of network administrator. it delivers the actual information on location of servers, hubs, switches, routers, and other telecommunication equipment. The collection of network related symbols provided with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution represents the entire network components. All Symbols are standard. Therefore, network specialists can effortlessly decrypt this diagram.
