This sample shows the Flowchart of the testing the work of the lamp and decision making about what to do to lamp will work.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

ERD drawing becomes easier with predesigned entity relationship symbols, work flow shapes, entity relationship stencils. All variety of ERD symbols you may need for ERDs design is packed into libraries and templates from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software.
But anyone have an ERD symbols quick reference? Detailed reference information for them is represented at the tables.

The UML diagrams in this Solution are divided into three broad categories: Structure Diagrams; Behavior Diagrams; Interaction Diagrams.
The 13 diagrams contained in the Rapid UML Solution offer an essential framework for systems analysts and software architects to create the diagrams they need to model processes from the conceptual level on through to project completion.

This template shows the Context Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Block Diagrams Solution from the “Diagrams” area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The context diagram graphically identifies the system. external factors, and relations between them. It’s a high level view of the system. The context diagrams are widely used in software engineering and systems engineering for designing the systems that process the information.

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.
