Gantt charts for planning and scheduling projects
ConceptDraw PROJECT is simple project scheduling software which provide full range of professional project reports with project statuses and resorces usage. Here we explain very common thing - how project gantt charts works in ConceptDraw PROJECT scheduling software.
A Gantt chart is a graphical representation of task segments within a given time scale. The Gantt chart helps project managers in planning and monitoring project development or resource allocation. The left hand column in a Gantt chart is a list of all the tasks that pertain to the project at hand. The horizontal axis is a time scale that is expressed either in absolute or relative time.
In a Gantt chart, each task takes up one row with dates running across the horizontal axis in increments of days, weeks or months. The bars in the Gantt chart visually show the start and end dates of each task in a project. Tasks may run sequentially, in parallel or overlap each other. Each tasks indicate resources assigned to tasks. This is common approach of how every simple project scheduling software operates with tasks.
Example of Gantt chart

Schedule projects using a Gantt chart:
- Assess time characteristics to a project.
- Show the task order.
- Define resources involved.
- Display links between scheduled tasks.
Plan projects using a Gantt chart:
- Monitor project completion.
- Display results of changes made to task activities.
- Show links and relationships between scheduled tasks.

The onion diagram is a type of diagram which shows the dependencies among parts of an organization or process. The items are displayed at the concentric circles, where the items at the bigger rings depend on the items at the smaller rings.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Stakeholder Onion Diagrams Solution from the Management Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a professional Onion Diagram Maker.

When we start to speak about databases, we must always mention database structure visualization. One of the most common ways to do it is to create an entity relationship diagram, and to put appropriate symbols on it. It is important either for database projecting and for its' future maintenance.
Entity Relationship Diagram describes data elements and their relationships within a database. There are a set of special symbols that depict each element of an entity relationship diagram. Entities - represents some stable components such as supplier, employee, invoice, client, etc. Relation symbols show how the entities interact. Attributes define characteristics of the relationships. Attributes can be one-to-one or many-to-many. Physical symbols is used in the physical models. They represent items such as fields, tables, types and keys. ERD physical symbols are the building material for the database. Notation lines are used to illustrate the relationships. The most common method is Crow’s Feet notation. You can use ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution to represent a database using the Entity-Relationship model.

Every engineering project starts from a terms of reference document. The next stage of developing is a technical drawing, which requires using appropriate software. However, revisions and discussions about requirements are possible at any stage of development.
This technical drawing demonstrates a schematic flow diagram of pulp reclaiming. This diagram of magnetite pulp reclaiming is created using ConceptDraw Chemical and Process engineering solution, The solution delivers more than 460 vector graphic icons and connectors. Generally, it is intended for designing process and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) for chemical and process engineering. block flow diagrams (BFD), process flow diagrams (PFD) for chemical industry.

Creating a flowchart that is known to be a type of diagram that represents some algorithm, some process or some workflow may be a challenge for those who never had any experience in doing it before. Having such useful tool as the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software it is possible, but once there is an opportunity to use a relatively new Flowcharts solution from the ConceptDraw STORE application, then it would worth to take it.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is the best program to make workflow diagrams. With the new Arrows10 technology it brings features allow you make workflow diagrams faster then ever before. These features allow you to focus on thinking, not drawing, that makes ConceptDraw DIAGRAM the best program to make workflow diagrams.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM - workflow software extended with the Workflow Diagram solution provides a complete set of samples, templates and features help you to draw diagrams faster. A workflow software you use for drawing workflow diagrams and business process flow diagrams should provide a wide set of examples allows you get closer with workflow diagrams, learn symbols meaning, find appropriate layout and design, and then start drawing your own workflow diagram masterfully. Workflow diagrams used for orchestrating organizational processes between company departments and humans, so critical process diagrams used to train many people to interact must be clear and professional to convey an idea from a view. Thats a reason we created a lot workflow symbols and workflow icons collected them into special Workflow Diagram solution in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
