Diagramming Software for Design
Business Process Diagrams
Design Elements: Swimlanes
Swimlanes are a visual mechanism of organizing and categorizing activities, in BPMN consist of two types:
- Pool: represents major participants in a process. A pool contains one or more lanes.
- Lane: used to organize and categorize activities within a pool according to function or role.
ConceptDraw has 142 vector stencils in the 8 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own Business Process Diagrams. Use Swimlanes library with 20 objects from BPMN.
The Swimlanes library design elements provides a visual mechanism of organizing and categorizing activities in BPMN 2.0 diagrams.
Use Pool type Swimlane objects to show major participants in your business process.
Use Lane type Swimlane elements to visually organize and categorize activities in a pool by function or role.

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.

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts.
Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.
