Entity Relationship Software

Entity Relationship Diagram

ERD is a major data modelling tool which can help to organize your project's data into the entities and to define the relashionships between these entities.

It is convenient to design ER Diagrams using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park. This solution supports Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations that are often used to describe database structure.

In a Chen's notation, entities are represented by rectangles with the entities names inside and relationships are represented by diamonds. The attributes are drawn as ovals and are connected with a line to exactly one entity or relationship set.

ERD Software. Chen's notation

Example 1. Entity Relationship Software. Chen's notation

Another type of notation is known as Crow's Foot notation. Fundamentally it is very similar to Chen's notation and differs by designations, are used the boxes to represent entities and the lines between them to represent relationships. The attributes of entity are drawn in the box that represents this entity.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Network Diagram Tool →

Creating a detailed network plan can cause a lot of headache to an unexperienced user. And it is worth mentioning that ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a decent tool for creating a network diagram, a tool that is easy-to-use. To get an accurate diagram use the vector shapes from the special libraries that represent workstations, network appliances, wiring systems and connect them with smart-connectors, just as simple as that. This communication network diagram displays the way different components of a computer network communicate with each other. When representing network information, such as depicting all the equipment in a large network, it is helpful to make visual representation. Network diagram provides an easy way to show the way the connections between an equipment in a large network. This diagram of a communication network depicts a network composed of three sub-networks. It uses a network equipment symbols to represent the different devices that make up a network communication including routers, Ethernet devices and end-point equipment.ConceptDraw DIAGRAM <br> Network Diagram Tool *

Flowchart design. Flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons →

When thinking about data visualization, one of the first tools that comes to mind is a flowchart design. You can find flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons easily on the Internet, but it might take time to systematize this information. Nevertheless, once you start flowcharting, you’ll love its simplicity and efficiency. This diagram consists from standard flowchart symbols, approved by ANSI (American National Standard Institute) for drawing flowcharts. A flowchart is a diagram that represents a step-by-step algorithm of any process, displaying the process stages as boxes that are connected with arrows. Flowchart design makes it clear and readable. Flowchart designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software allows to make attractive and clear process presentation, it makes interpretation of the business process flow fresh and versatile. Great flowchart design view is a big advantage over the diagram created manually on a paper.Flowchart design
