Gantt Chart Software
Project Planning Chart addresses the time of individual work elements giving a time line for each activity of a project. As it can be seen in the figure. On the chart, everyone is able to see when each activity starts and finishes but there is no possibility to determine when each activity may start or if we can start a particular activity before finishing the immediate predecessor activity. Therefore, we need somehow know the precedence relationships between activities. This is the main reason for using the following tools instead of using exclusively Gantt Charts.
Using the Gantt Chart software you can create and manage projects of unlimited size and length. Add and distribute as many resources as you need for your project.
Benefits of Gantt Chart Software for Windows and Mac OS X
- Speed - to make changes
- Flexibility - to look at alternatives
- Track many projects, each with many tasks
- Set and track milestones for your projects
- Communication - print reports or send software file to stakeholders or post results on web site
The Gantt Chart is the main interface in ConceptDraw PROJECT It summarizes the tasks in your project and presents them graphically so you can easily view your progress.

The left pane of the Gantt Chart contains a list of tasks and shows their dates, priority, assigned resources, and subtasks. Markers help you identify the different types of task.

The right pane of the Gantt Chart shows a timeline of your project. Colored bars cover the dates assigned to each task, and changes of color within those bars show the task’s degree of completion.

The purpose of ConceptDraw PROJECT is to track who does what, when, as well as reporting on the cost of your project over time. It will help you manage your time better by tracking the tasks your project consists of, when they will be executed, who is assigned to each task, and the associated costs.

When used in different areas, flowcharts use specific symbols to depict different elements. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers libraries of symbols for many areas. One of such libraries is flowchart symbols accounting, which provides symbols for accounting diagrams. Activity-based costing calculates the costs of all products and services based on activities in an organization. A type of accounting flowchart that shows how costs are assigned to products with resources and activities is called Activity-based costing (ABC) flowchart. It can be designed in a digital drawing software such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
Here is an accounting flowchart template and symbols. These flowchart symbols are applied for making accounting flow charts in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and with its Accounting Flowcharts solution. An accounting flowchart is a specific type of a flow diagram. Practically a number of flowchart-type diagrams commonly utilized to clarify many parts of an accounting department working process. Accounting flowchart assists a process of preparing accounting documentation. It shows who responsible for implementation of each step in the workflow of accounting department.

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them.
The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.

When talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems.
The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.

When thinking about data visualization, one of the first tools that comes to mind is a flowchart design. You can find flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons easily on the Internet, but it might take time to systematize this information. Nevertheless, once you start flowcharting, you’ll love its simplicity and efficiency.
This diagram consists from standard flowchart symbols, approved by ANSI (American National Standard Institute) for drawing flowcharts. A flowchart is a diagram that represents a step-by-step algorithm of any process, displaying the process stages as boxes that are connected with arrows. Flowchart design makes it clear and readable.
Flowchart designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software allows to make attractive and clear process presentation, it makes interpretation of the business process flow fresh and versatile. Great flowchart design view is a big advantage over the diagram created manually on a paper.
