A flowchart is a type of diagram used for designing, analyzing, documenting and managing the processes and programs, it lets visually represent an algorithm, workflow or process using the boxes objects to show the steps and connecting them with arrows, and applying a diamond symbol to represent a decision.
The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a professional software for quick and easy building great looking flowcharts of various types and any degree of complexity. An important role at the simplicity of drawing the flowcharts plays the ConceptDraw's RapidDraw technology which lets to add the objects with just a single click and create professional-looking flowcharts in a few steps.
The vector stencils from the object libraries allow you to use the RapidDraw technology. By clicking on direction arrows one can add new object to flowchart. This technology gives to ConceptDraw users the ability of fast creating visualization for the structural data.
Start new document
Open Flowcharts Rapid Draw library from the Flowcharts solution
Add a first object to page
Place cursor on the object
You will see blue arrows with drop-down object
Pick needed object
New object is added and connected with connector
Note: New object also will have a Rapid Draw functionality
Add new objects using the same method
Note: New object will be added at the same side as a blue arrow points
Continue to draw a flowchart
Flowchart base is ready, let's fill it out
Note: When you work with rapid draw objects, once you reach left or bottom edge of page, its size will double automatically

Change the path of connector using yellow control dots. In this case connector will stick to new trajectory, even if you move connected object
Align objects horizontally
Fill the text
Allign text center using Inspector
Add missing connectors to the objects. Connection points will appear as crosses
Add new connectors, if needed
Connect connector with object's center; in this case, when you move an object, connector will follow the closest path side

When thinking about the process of decision making, it's easy to imagine it as a pyramid. We will look at a three level pyramid model as an example. Operational decisions are first that come to mind, and it's the first level. Tactical and strategic decisions are the second and the third levels.
Pyramid (triangle) diagrams are used to show some hierarchical data. Because to the pyramid form of diagram, each diagram slice has a different width. The width of each segment depends on its hierarchical level.
The current image illustrates the model of information system types. Most graphically the model can be represented as a three level pyramid. The first level shows a system of transaction processing It is concentrated on operational tasks. The second level is devoted to tactical solutions of the information system management. And at least, the third level addresses strategy and represents the executive information system. This three level pyramid sample is supplied with the ConceptDraw Pyramid Diagrams solution from Marketing area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Any hierarchical structure of any company can be represented as a triangle or a pyramid. You can create a pyramid diagram and pyramid chart of any complexity using special libraries included in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. Actually, any knowledge or chain of facts can also be depicted as a pyramid.
A wide range of graph and chart are utilized in marketing to maintain documentation and various visual issues, that deal with marketing information and data. The marketing value pyramid can be created to illustrate how the value of company, or product is based on its competitiveness. To design this diagram we used ConceptDraw DIAGRAM drawing tools in conjunction with Pyramid solution for Solution Park.
The main advantage of using ConceptDraw Ice Hockey Solution is that you don't need to draw objects manually, you have all you need in libraries, templates and samples.

Local area network connects computers and other network appliances within an area, such as office building or a campus. It can be difficult to provide such network without a predesigned plan. For these purposes you can use network diagram software, which helps you to create LAN network diagrams and office network diagrams quickly and effortless. This will speed up your work and you can save the diagram for the future network improvements.
The following diagram illustrates a network topology of the small office. LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.
There are a lot of tutorials that get you familiar with emergency situations. If you want to know how to create emergency plans and fire evacuation schemes then you must be concerned about safety. There is a list of rules that you should follow to set the fire safety equipment properly.
Discover this precise and accurate fire emergency evacuation plan. This sample drawing demonstrate facilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM together with its Fire and Emergency Plans solution. The evacuation plan is designed to provide employees and visitors with a map depicting the ways they may use to escape the building in emergency situations. The telephone sets, first aid boxes and extinguisher are also marked on this plan. The evacuation plan should contain a legend for readers. The similar plans are commonly hang on the wall on the building's floors.

Using the drawing tools, libraries of vector objects, graphical user interface examples that offers Windows 8 User Interface solution, you will easily design the Windows 8 user interfaces and Windows 8 UI design patterns of any complexity.
If we divide computer networks by scale, we get several main categories. The smallest network is PAN, as it connects personal devices themselves, and as the number of users grows, a local area network can be recognized, and campus area networks (CAN) connects several local networks located within some area like a university or a corporation. Computers connected to CAN share public educational materials and list of CAN network examples includes such prestigious universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon.
This is an example of a computer network diagram created for a campus area network. It was created using using ConceptDraw solution for the Computer and Network diagramming. The specific of this sample campus network is its distribution. It is rather broad to embrace a big campus territory. This diagram can be applied as a template for designing custom area network topology diagram for a particular educational institution.
