Modelling Concepts for Business Engineering - EPC
Event-driven Process Chain
The Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) Diagrams allows engineers visually present process models for they implementation. The EPC diagram shows various business processes in terms of work flows.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM includes tools that are specifically designed to facilitate the process of depicting business processes.

The Event-driven Process Chain Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with EPC templates, samples, and vector shape library for the drawing of EPC diagrams.
The Event-driven Chain Diagrams solution assists in visualization of modelling concepts for business engineering.

Structured-systems analysis and design method uses data flow diagrams to represent the process of data flowing through a system. Talking about this might be useless without a proper example of DFD for online store (Data Flow Diagram). This DFD example shows all the distinctness that a diagram can bring into a scattered data structure.
Data flow diagrams are used to show how data is processed within some business processes. Making DFD is a common practice for business process modeling and analysis. This diagram represents the online store business flow. It describes inputs and outputs within online selling process and depicts the interactions between its participants. This DF diagram can be used by system analysts to create an overview of a business, to study and discover its inherent strengths and weak points.

There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart.
This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

You need to draw the Circular Arrows Diagram, Segmented Diagram or Circular Flow Diagram? Any of these diagrams can be fast and easy designed in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, which offers the Business Diagrams Solution from the Management Area with extensive drawing tools, predesigned samples and circular flow diagram template. The use of ready template is the easiest way of drawing.

A competent delegation of responsibilities between workers guarantees business success in most cases. At first sight, it might seem that workflow diagram symbols are quite similar to a regular flowchart. But workflow diagram is a more accurate way to present working processes.
Workflow diagrams are helpful for a working process analyzation, to depict a pathway of process issues, personalize responsibilities and identify resources that will help to optimize a workflow. Generally, Workflow diagram deploys flowchart symbols for displaying work process steps and relationships. But, often it require some additions and improvements to become more professional and illustrative. The Workflow solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides the user with a big library of symbols that are designed especially for workflow diagrams.
