Fishbone Diagram Procedure
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Fishbone Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park gives the ability to draw Fishbone diagram, which identifies many possible causes for an effect for problem solving. Fishbone Diagram procedure of creation includes the following steps:
- Draw an ellipse at the center right of the diagram page and draw a horizontal arrow running to it. Write problem effect into ellipse.
- Brainstorm problem major categories causes. You can use generic headings: Equipment, Process, People, Materials, Environment and Management.
- Draw the categories of causes as branches from the main arrow.
- Brainstorm all the possible causes of the problem. Causes can be draw in several places if they relate to several categories.
- Draw sub–causes branching off the causes and generate deeper levels of causes.
- Focus attention to chart where the ideas are few.

Talking about companies, that have influenced the entire industry, we should mention Cisco and it’s influence on network design. Nowadays, this equipment has became a kind of standard, and Cisco icons, shapes, stencils, symbols and design elements are easily recognized among others. You can use these icons to develop a network diagram of any complexity.
When dealing with creating a pack of network documentation, system administrator often have to depict a network containing a network equipment of such a well-known manufacturer as Cisco. As Cisco has developed its own production standard icons that are strongly recommended to use in Cisco network diagrams. The best way to draw Cisco Network diagram Cisco certified icons is using ConceptDraw solution for Cisco Network Diagrams. Using Cisco symbols library provided by this solution allows system administrator, or network architect to design a prototype of a new network or document an existing one.

If your company is in chaos in clutter and no one understands their rights and responsibilities, maybe it's time to change that. One of the ways to put the company in order is to draw an organization chart that would reflect the structure and show the relationships among departments and positions. This is a very useful and easy to understand scheme.
This is example of the one of the most typical kind of organizational chart. It depicts an organizational structure of the hierarchical type. Its construction is similarv to pyramid. The single main position on the top - in this case, the mayor's position followed by sub-levels of authority in his command. Each position in the pyramid reports only to his supervisor, and takes only a report of direct subordinates. Such scheme limits the number of communications. This organizational structure is effectively used in public organizations. Also it is suitable for any organization with the need for multiple levels of middle managers. The ability to create organizational charts of different types is supplied with ConceptDraw Ogrcharts solutions.

Any information system receives data flows from external sources. In order to visualize them there is a list of data flow diagram symbols that describes how the system components cooperate. If you want to create a data flow diagram, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park has DFD Library that contains both Yourdon and Gane-Sarson notations.
This figure shows the content of vector libraries, delivered with ConceptDraw solution for data flow diagram (DFD). There are three libraries composed from about 50 vector objects used to make data flow diagrams.
They include a complete set of objects utilized by Yourdon-Coad and Gane-Sarson notations - two primary notations that are apply for data flow diagramming. Also, one can discover additional "Data flow diagram (DFD)" library that provides a data flow diagram elements for designing level 1 and context-level data flow diagrams.
