MS Visio Look a Like Diagrams


ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, being a great alternative to MS Visio on Mac, supports import of MS Visio files as well as swim-lane diagrams, flowcharts, project charts, orgcharts, cause-and-effect diagrams, decision tree charts, graphs, schemes, maps, plans and many other diagram types, which all can be created within a short period of time having the solutions available to be downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE.

Let’s imagine you created some network diagram in order to describe the existing network structure. Physical network diagram is known to be used for presenting Telecommunications data (such as cable length) carrying a capacity or telecommunication type, servers with names, IP address (if it’s static), server role as well as domain name, location of network equipment (such as hubs, switches, modems, routers, bridges and printers) and the number of network users. You can always continue improving the way this diagram looks, importing it to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and so, using the existing tools, which can be found in the so called “solutions” from ConceptDraw STORE. In this way, you can always make it possible to make the already made diagram look so much better, exploring the stencil libraries and picking the great as well as professionally looking design symbols for completing the drawing.

Same about making other drawings. You can make Process and Instrumentation Drawing, Process Flow Diagram, EPC Diagram, Basic Flowchart, TQM Diagram, Cause and Effect Diagram, ER Diagram, Cross-Functional Flowchart, Fault Tree Analysis Diagram, Audit Diagram, Sales Flowchart, Work Flow Diagram, Data Flow Diagram, Accounting Flowcharts, as well as many more other ones, using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, exporting them to MS Visio, if needed, after.

In order to create diagram in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can, first of all, open a new document in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software, select one of the existing libraries from the needed solution, which can be found and so downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE. Then add any needed elements to the diagram by dragging them from the stencil library from the chosen solution to your document page. Add the next object by clicking on its icon from the “RapidDraw arrows” that pop up immediately when you bring the mouse cursor over the chosen object, modifying them any time you need by using the “Action button menu”. Once your diagram is done, you can then save it in the needed format as well as export it for using in the other applications, such as MS Visio.

To compare ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and MS Visio, it’s obviously that the first one is more convenient in use and, providing the pre-made examples and templates makes ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application a better tool as having the previously created samples means having them as the users’ drafts for drawing their own great looking as well as professional charts, flowcharts, maps, diagrams and other schematics of different complexity. Having the stencil libraries full of design elements, which can be found and downloaded from Solution Park on this site as well as from ConceptDraw STORE, means having enough tools for making the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users’ drawing smart enough to look as if the professional designer made those plans, schemes, charts and flowcharts. You can always import the files created in MS Visio to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to continue working with them and to improve their content. So, it will help the MS Visio users to slowly get used to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as a better and more convenient software.

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  →

Database structures are usually described by ER-diagrams which represents entities as boxes with lines-connections between them. You can create any entity-relationship diagram (ERD) by means of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using ready-to-use templates and special libraries containing all the needed symbols and shapes. Creating a model for your database from now on can take just a few minutes. ERD (entity relationship diagram) designed to show the logical structure of databases. It intended to depict the relationships between data components (entities). ERDs are a popular tool for software engineers and architects. Using ERD they can manage the every aspect of database design. Also ERD can be used as guidelines for testing and communications before software release. This diagram represents the file reference system of the WordPress web platform. Because entity relationship diagrams have such a broad application area through the prevalence of database technology, it can be applied for a wide range of users.Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) <br>with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  *

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system. The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them.UML Class Diagram Notation *

ERD Symbols and Meanings →

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling. An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.ERD Symbols and Meanings
