Data Modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram
Data modeling is actively applied in analysis and uses wide set of methods for description the data requirements in a system. One of the most popular and well-known is the ERD method of database modeling, which lets produce conceptual, logical and physical data models of a system representing the levels of abstraction in database design and data modeling. Physical model lets to represent the physical schematic of a database, conceptual and logical data models give the representation of databases on the level of tables.
The best ERD tool for the Mac and Windows is ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park, which is sharpened for professional ERD drawing and data modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram.
Example 1. Data Modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram
Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM has examples, samples and templates, and 2 libraries with numerous quantity of vector objects for fast and easy data modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram.
Example 2. ERD Templates
The vector graphic Entity Relationship Diagrams designed in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to visualize the logical structure of databases can be a perfect accent for whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters, or any technical materials.
Example 3. Entity-Relationship Model Diagram
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the libraries from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution and demonstrate the process of data modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram. An experienced user spent 10-15 minutes creating each of these samples.
Use the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software for quick, easy and effective drawing ER diagrams and data modeling.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE.

There are a lot of structured analysis and design technique methodologies used to describe systems and data sources. To visualize data structures, data flow diagrams can be used for various purposes in the area of software engineering. Nowadays these diagrams are also used in the area of business analysis and information system analysis.
This data flow diagram depicts an account processing system of a typical account department of a small manufacturing enterprise. It shows the data transmission through the order processing to shipping verification. This data flow diagram was created according to standard of Yourdon and Coad notation. The vector graphic objects of Yourdon/Coad notation symbols was delivered by ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution. The current DFD can be employed as an example of a business process model, representing the set of business events and interactions commonly engaged in a accounts receivable process.

Developing a software project supposes architecture first. To make it proper, you can use data flow diagram model in your current project.
The data flow diagram represents the Model of small traditional production enterprise that is made using Yourdon and Coad notation. It shows how the data is transfered through a process. According to the notation of Yourdon and Coad a process is represented by circles and data stores are drawn using parallel lines. This DFD was created using the ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution. Using this solution one can visualize data flow accordingly to the rules of two basic notations used for data flow modeling.

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.

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.
