Design Element: Basic Network
for Network Diagrams
Network diagrams visualize schematically the computer networks topology, equipment nodes and different types of their logical and physical connections. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the topology and design of computer and telecommunication networks.
ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own Network Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils from Basic Network library with 51 objects.
Sample 1. Design Elements — Basic Network (macintosh, windows)
for Network Diagrams.
ConceptDraw Basic Network library of vector stencils from Computer and Networks solution provides the 51 objects of design element for drawing the computer network diagrams.
Use the Basic Network library to create your own computer network diagrams that show LAN and WAN topology, equipment nodes and their logical and physical connections.

This sample shows the UML Class Diagram that was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM on the Mac and then was opened for editing in MS Visio.
Using the 13 libraries of the Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can create your own visual vector UML diagrams quick and easy.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Class Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample describes the use of the classes, the generalization associations between them, the multiplicity of associations and constraints. Provided UML diagram is one of the examples set that are part of Rapid UML solution.

An abstract representation is usually the first thing you will need while developing a database. To understand the ways that databases are structured, you should look through entity-relationship diagram examples and see the notations features and attributes. With an entity-relationship model you can describe a database of any complexity.
This Entity-relationship diagram is a tool for software developers. It enables every element of database to be managed, communicated and tested before release. This ERD was created using symbols advocated by Chen's notation. Because of a linguistic origin of the Chen’s notation, the boxes representing entities could be interpreted as nouns, and the relationships between them are in verb form, shown on a diagram as a diamond.

Functional modeling allows to make complex business processes simple. One of the basic methods is IDEF0 and one of the most effective also. To create a business model, use flowchart symbols.
The IDEF0 library, supplied with ConceptDraw IDEF0 Diagrams solution contains 18 IDEF0 basic notation symbols. All symbols are the vector graphic images what means, that one can customize their size preserving the stable quality. Another library of IDEF0 symbols can be find out in the the Business Process Diagrams solution, included to the Business Processes section of ConceptDraw Solution Park. These libraries composed from just vector objects and are totally compatible. You can apply the IDEF0 symbols from both libraries at your flowcharts, if needed.

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network.
On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.

Rack Diagram is effective way for visualization the rack mounting of computer and network equipment. It visually represents the frontal view of the rack with equipment installed. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software offers the Rack Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park for effective drawing the rack diagrams of any complexity.

As restaurant industry is growing rapidly nowadays, researches show that almost half of the adults have worked in a restaurant or a cafe. Moreover, many of them dream to start their own someday. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time to write a business plan and to find a great location, although some know how to create a restaurant floor plan in minutes or how to plan budget effortlessly. Hiring employees can also cause a lot of headache, but this is crucial for further success, because every guest comes to restaurant for a good service and delicious food. It is also worth noting that restaurant concept is also important, because it defines target audience and influences the menu.
This diagram represents the floor plan of an ongoing sports-theme establishment - restaurant, cafe, or other food service. A number of widescreen monitors installed along the perimeter provide visitors the opportunity to follow the course of a match from anywhere in the dining room of restaurant or cafe. The most of sports fans believe that food and alcohol is a big part of any sports show. That is why the dining room takes the most space - almost 60% of the total establishment space. Nearly all sports fans consume beverages while watching sports - beer, soda or water at least. Thus, the restaurant floor plan designers added a large lavatory there. Moreover, project developers considered unnecessary the gender division of such delicate place - perhaps they guess that only men are watching football, or believe that alcohol will eliminate the most of gender differences.
