Design Element: Crows Foot
for Entity Relationship Diagram - ERD

Entity-relationship Diagram (ERD) is a perfect tool which lets execute the detalization of data warehouse for designed system, as well as documenting the entities of the system and their interactions each other, including the identification of important domain objects (entities), the properties of these objects (attributes) and their relationships to other objects.

Creating an ERD requires choosing a specific set of notations that best serve the specific database being designed. Chen’s original notation had a linguistic approach, where boxes representing entities could be thought of as nouns, and the relationships between them were in verb form, shown on a diagram as a diamond.

Eventually Chen’s style was adapted into the Crow’s Foot notation, where relationships were shown as single labeled lines – this quickly became the popular standard, due to improved readability on diagrams, with a more efficient use of space on the page.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park allows you to draw ER diagrams for depicting a database using the ERD diagram design element Crow's Foot - Crow′s Foot notation icons.

Work Order Process Flowchart. Business Process Mapping Examples →

Working with personnel might be difficult if you are not prepared enough. To explain your workers all the details of communication with customers, you can draw an order process flowchart which will describe every step of the process and answer all the questions that might appear. You can view a lot of business process mapping diagram examples here, in ConceptDraw Solution Park. This business process flow chart is created to illustrate the sample work order process. Before an organization can make some work for a person, the customer work order request must be completed. It is needed for tracking and accountability objectives. We used this business process flowchart to show a certain tasks and actions assumed by an organization. This flowchart depicts the outside inputs that are needed to launch a process, and ways the organization delivers its outputs. This business process flowchart was created with a help of ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution.Work Order Process Flowchart. <br>Business Process Mapping Examples *

Software and Database Design with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  →

Using diagrams, you can visualize the flow of the information or build a detailed data structure. There's no need to have a degree in software and database design with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM , because this software has all the tools needed in developing models and diagrams. Project planning, designing and prototyping was never so easy. This UML diagrams can be used to visualize a model of the data base development process. A UML diagram shows a graphical view of a structure of software system: components and relationships. Using Unified Modeling Language helps to depict logical and physical elements of a data base, visually represent requirements and sub-systems. UML diagrams allows developers to organize and predict critical issues, as well as collaborate data base information.Software and Database Design with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  *

UML Use Case Diagram Example. Registration System →

The use case diagram (behavior scenarios, precedents) is the initial conceptual representation of the system during its design and development. This diagram consists of actors, use cases and relationships between them. When constructing a diagram, common notation elements can also be used: notes and extension mechanisms. This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Use Case Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This sample shows the types of user’s interactions with the system and is used at the registration and working with the database system.UML Use Case Diagram

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  *
