# Influence Diagram

This sample shows the Influence Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Basic Diagramming Solution from the Universal Diagramming area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Influence diagram (ID) is a graphical and mathematical representation of the decision. Influence diagrams are widely used in the decision analysis and in the game theory. They are the alternative to the decision tree. The influence diagram gives to analyst the high-level conceptual view that it can use to build the detailed quantitative model.

Influence diagram represents the directed acyclic graph with three types of nodes and three types of arcs that connect the nodes. Decision node is drawn as a rectangle, Uncertainty node is drawn as an oval, Value node is drawn as an octagon.

**Sample 1.** Influence diagram.

This Influence diagram shows the making decision about the vacation activity.

Use the ready-to-use predesigned objects, templates and samples from the Basic Diagramming Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can create your own Influence Diagrams quick and easy.

The Influence Diagrams produced with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

Analyze the root causes of factors that influence the problem. A diagram is constructed separately for each high priority factor. Identify the root causes for a factor and then propose possible corrective actions. The diagram displays the structure of causes for a factor and possible corrective actions. The Root Cause Analysis Tree Diagram is used for further formulation of actions.Picture: Root Cause Tree Diagram

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling.
An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.Picture: ERD Symbols and Meanings

When designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies.
This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.Picture: Tree Network Topology Diagram
