It is easy to recreate any informational system structure using diagrams. There are three main components of any ER diagram: entity, attribute and relationship. Basing on these three components, one can define other, less used elements, such as weak entity or relationship, derived attribute, recursive relationship etc.
This is the set of graphic elements of ERD Chen's notation. This ERD notation is used to represent an entity–relationship models. It involves the set of geometric forms: rectangles - depicting entities, ovals - representing attributes and diamonds depicting relationships assigned for first-class objects, that can have relationships and attributes of their own. Connections are displayed with arrowed lines. It is known that the Chen's ERD notation is used to show a detailed view of entities and relationships. ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram solution from the Software Development section of Solution Park provides the ability to create ERD of database structure for software development purposes using the Chen’s notation elements.

Both Crow’s Foot and Chen’s notations are used to build database models. Each of them has its’ own features, and if you use a proper entity relationship diagram software, you’ll be able to create diagrams of any notation. Database model with clearly defined entities and relationships between them facilitates further work greatly.
This ERD represents the model of Employee Certification Entity. The entity-relationship diagram is a visual instrument of database software development. It is used to structure data and to define the relationships between structured data groups. This ERD was designed with a help of ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution. The solution supports the both basic ERD notations used to describe the structure of database: Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations.

While designing a conceptual data model, you should use appropriate software. For instance, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a user-friendly ER diagram tool that has a lot of samples and templates to facilitate your work. A clear entity-relationship diagram helps to define the relations between system’s components.
Software engineering is the section of a computer science engaged to design, realization, and support of complex software products. An ERD is a data modeling method that is widely applied in the software engineering practice. Commonly it is used for developing a structure of a a relational database. An entity relationship diagram is helpful for structuring and organizing databases that can be modeled using a relational structure. An entity relationship diagram is designed to depicts the interrelationships within the sets of entities which are accumulated in the database. Each entity represents a particular component of a data. Thus, ER diagrams depicts the logical structure of databases. ConceptDraw ER Diagrams solution provides software engineers with the professional tool for making entity-relationship diagrams.

An abstract representation is usually the first thing you will need while developing a database. To understand the ways that databases are structured, you should look through entity-relationship diagram examples and see the notations features and attributes. With an entity-relationship model you can describe a database of any complexity.
This Entity-relationship diagram is a tool for software developers. It enables every element of database to be managed, communicated and tested before release. This ERD was created using symbols advocated by Chen's notation. Because of a linguistic origin of the Chen’s notation, the boxes representing entities could be interpreted as nouns, and the relationships between them are in verb form, shown on a diagram as a diamond.

The entity–relationship (ER) model is a data model that lets graphically represent the information system and depict the relationships between people, objects, concepts, places, and events within a given system. It is also convenient to use the ER Diagram for Cloud computing representation and description the Cloud computing architecture, design them with pleasure using the extensive tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

When we start to speak about databases, we must always mention database structure visualization. One of the most common ways to do it is to create an entity relationship diagram, and to put appropriate symbols on it. It is important either for database projecting and for its' future maintenance.
Entity Relationship Diagram describes data elements and their relationships within a database. There are a set of special symbols that depict each element of an entity relationship diagram. Entities - represents some stable components such as supplier, employee, invoice, client, etc. Relation symbols show how the entities interact. Attributes define characteristics of the relationships. Attributes can be one-to-one or many-to-many. Physical symbols is used in the physical models. They represent items such as fields, tables, types and keys. ERD physical symbols are the building material for the database. Notation lines are used to illustrate the relationships. The most common method is Crow’s Feet notation. You can use ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution to represent a database using the Entity-Relationship model.
