Example 1. Drawing ER diagrams on a Mac
Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park specially designed for professional ERD drawing gives you the possibility to design ER diagrams easily on your Mac. Use powerful drawing tools of this solution and 2 libraries with 45 predesigned vector objects:
- ERD Chen's Notation Library
- ERD Crow’s Foot Notation Library
Example 2. ERD Libraries for Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution
To quickly design the E-R Diagram for Mac, you can follow few simply steps:
- drag desired objects from the libraries of Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution to your document,
- connect the objects,
- use the Action button menu in the upper right corner of the object to change it,
- apply Line, Fill, Shadow and Text tools to format your diagram.
Another useful way of drawing in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is to use quick-start Chen ERD template or Crow's Foot ERD template, and change it according to your needs.
Example 3. Drawing ER Diagram
The ER diagrams you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the libraries from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution. An experienced user spent 10-15 minutes creating each of these samples. You can find them all at ConceptDraw STORE.
Use the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software for quick, easy and effective drawing ER diagrams on a Mac.

The activity of any organization is more or less branchy network of processes. The description of these processes is a hard technical task which requires definite methodology and standards.
According to the IDEF0 standard any process can be described in the form of a block (Activity Box) which has inputs and outputs. The process consists in transformation of inputs into outputs under the influence of the management and in the presence of necessary resources. Outputs of the given process later on can be either inputs for the next process or resources, or management means.

Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is an acknowledged method to visualize the logical structure of databases. Using special symbols described in ERD notations you can depict a database of any complexity.
The vector graphic ER diagrams produced when using ConceptDraw ERD solution can be used in whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters, or any technical materials.

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.

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.
