Gane Sarson Diagram
"The Gane & Sarson method is based on the building of a logical model of the system, using graphical techniques to enable users, analysts, and designers to get a clear and common picture of the system and how its parts fit together to meet the user's needs.
The methodology involves building a system top-down by successive refinement. First, an overall system data flow is created. Then, detailed data flows are created. Next, the details of the data structures and the process logic is determined. Finally, design of modular structures is begun.
The focus of analysis in the Gane and Sarson method is the Data Flow diagram, which is used to describe the processes of the system, and how the processes transform data."

This pyramid chart example is supplied with the ConceptDraw Pyramid Diagrams solution. This is a model of Information Management Systems classification. It is made in a form of a four-level pyramid. The top level shows the information system developed for an executive management. Below, there is a level depicting the system of decision making process for the managers of the senior level. A schematic representation of the middle management information system, following to logic, is in the middle of the pyramid. And at least, the lowermost level represents an information processing system for employees.
