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."

The vector stencils library Gane-Sarson Notation from the solution Data Flow Diagrams contains specific symbols of the Gane-Sarson notation such as process symbol, connector symbol, jump symbol for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software. The Data Flow Diagrams solution is contained in the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Use the Data Flow solution to draw data flow diagrams for your business documents, presentations and websites.
Example 1. Gane Sarson Diagram
The example above illustrates the Gane-Sarson notation usage for drawing a data flow diagram for on-line appointment scheduling. "The patient enters a web inquiry which generates two checks against different databases, and the information is returned to the patient for acceptance."

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.
