Pyramid Diagram

Knowledge Pyramid - Triangle Diagram


The DIKW pyramid has other names and it is also known as the DIKW hierarchy, the wisdom hierarchy, the information hierarchy, the data pyramid and the knowledge hierarchy. Such pyramid refers to a class of models and it is used for representing the purported structural and functional relationships between information, data, wisdom and knowledge. At the same time, the term “information” can be defined in terms of data, when the term “knowledge” is defined in terms of information and the term “wisdom” — in terms of knowledge. Not all the versions of the DIKW hierarchy reference all the four components, as some include more components, additionally.

Any DIKW model can be also characterized as a chain, as a continuum, as a framework and as a series of graphs, often being quoted in definitions of data, knowledge and information in the so called “information management”, as well as knowledge management and information systems literature. At the same time, it is important to remember that there has been a limited direct discussion of the hierarchy so far. Although, there is still no consensus as to the definitions used in the model, it still has led the Israeli researcher Chaim Zins to suggest that all the components of DIKW, which are known to be “data, information and knowledge”, refer to a class of at least five models, as a function of whether information, knowledge and data are each conceived of as objective, subjective or both. In his theory, the objective and subjective are not related to truthfulness and arbitrariness, which are the terms being usually attached to the concepts of the so called “objective” as well as the “subjective” knowledge.

Data in the context of DIKW is a group of signs or symbols, with help of which it is simpler to represent the needed signals or stimuli, being sometimes understood to be referred not only to symbols, but also to signals or stimuli referred to by said symbols, termed as the so called “subjective data”. The term of the “universal data” can be simply understood as a “product of observation". Also, data can be characterized as the objective, discrete, unorganized and unprocessed observations or facts, having no value or meaning for a reason of a lack of any proper interpretation and context. Data can be also simply defined as the "merely raw facts". When such facts have as some fundamental property then they are known to be true, having an objective reality. Otherwise, they can be verified, resulting in being defined as “false”: nonsensical and meaningless data from the “DIKW model”.

The so called “subjective data can be comparable to the so called “knowledge by acquaintance”, being based on the direct experience of such “stimuli”. No matter which of the definitions of data is chosen, any data can be consistently defined including sets of signs used for representing the so called “empirical stimuli or perceptions of a property of an event, an object or of the environment", or "symbols". In this sense data is known to be recorded, which means storing the captured symbols, including words, numbers, images and diagrams.

Making diagrams is always much simpler having the proper software, such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing one. Having a choice of so many different applications nowadays, it is always better to choose the right one, meaning to choose the best one. At least one of the best and most commonly used is a ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one. The mentioned software is the one being used by people in the world, working for completely different organizations being involved in many different spheres of the existing business activity.

Thus, working for IT company or being involved in the university activities, providing the affordable education in terms of it being simple enough for students to understand it easily from the very first lectures, it is better to use the progressive software, such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one, for enabling those who are the target audience to understand information of any complexity in a way of arranging the existing data in a way of the drawing, creating it in the mentioned application.

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.Warehouse Flowchart

Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  →

Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later. There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  *

Data Flow Diagrams →

Software development flourishes nowadays. Students have tons of educational information and courses that would fit every taste. And it's no secret that knowing how to draw data flow diagrams is a useful skill for a future software architect. The diagrams help a lot in understanding how to storage data effectively and how data processes within a system. This data flow diagram represents the model of small traditional production enterprise. It was created using Yourdon and Coad notation. The data flow diagram include four main objects: entity, process, data store and data flow. Yourdon and Coad notation uses circles to depict processes and parallel lines to represent data stores. Dataflows are shown as arrowed lines. They are labeled with the description of the data that move through them. Dataflow's role is to deliver the pieces of information. A process's function is to transform. the input data flow into output data flow. ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution contains the data flow diagram symbols of both Yourdon-Coad and Gane-Sarson notations and a set of handy templates to get started with DFD.Data Flow Diagrams *
