Example 1. Fishbone Diagram Design Element
Turn attention for the variety of vector elements predesigned and offered by Fishbone Diagrams library. The first step that you need to do when designing a Fishbone diagram is to draw the fish's backbone with a head. In ConceptDraw DIAGRAM simply drag ready backbone object from the library, if needed you can change the lenght of backbone line dragging the green handles on it.

Often for defining causes are used brainstorming sessions. The ConceptDraw Office innovative toolset is also helpful at this question, it offers the specialized ConceptDraw MindMap application for easy brainstorming. Having resulting Mind Map you can then easy output it as ready Fishbone diagram in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM for further work with it.

It is very difficult to get into database model idea without any examples. To create one, you can use Chen’s notation for Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD) and try to see all the peculiarities yourself. This notation describes entities and relations as basic geometric shapes like rectangles and diamonds.
Chen notation for Entity-relationship diagrams is used for designing relational databases. It depicts the database entities as a set of subjects. For example events, people, ideas, etc. All entities has common characteristics (attributes). Any object of the system is identified as the sole and unique. The name of entity should indicate the class or type of the the whole object, not a given example. The connection commonly represents a relationship between entities. Conceptdraw Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERD) solution provides the libraries with ready-to-use ERD element fitting Chen's notation objects and relationships.
