Organizational Structure

Draw Organizational Structure for Your Business

It is not an easy to task to visualize an organizational structure of any company or institution. Sometimes organisational structure could enclose more than thousand persons which work in different departments. Any types of organizational structure can be presented in the form of an organizational chart which creation is supported by ConceptDraw.

There are many methods of structuring an organization, determining how it might operate. Often the organizational structure adapts to the production process depending on the type of production and kind of production. The choice of the method depends on the business objectives, dealing with the fact that in the future it will affect organizational action in many ways. First, the structure provides the foundation for standard working operations. Second, it defines the group of people making key decisions in the company, and the extent to which their point of view affects the activities of the organization.

The most often-observed organizational structure is bureaucratic. This structure is the most standardized with its characteristic features like strictly defined roles and responsibilities and hierarchical structure. Such structure is common among large corporations and enterprises. Bureaucratic companies have well-developed levels of management starting with the top echelons of power ending with the heads of departments, which complicates immediate decision implementations due to the necessity of its adoption at many levels.

To facilitate the workers’ understanding of their responsibilities, and for a clear understanding how to action in all occurring situations, org charts are being created for every department. As the authority of such organizations is at the top, the information is distributed from the top to the bottom of the hierarchical tree. This is the bureaucratic structure main advantage for top managers, since the strategic decision-making process is quite fast. The disadvantage of this system is its inflexibility due to the rigidity of its policies, therefore, making significant changes and innovations almost impossible. Also, these corporations can discourage creativity which makes it difficult for a company to fit if the marketplace conditions change.

Another way to organize a company is to group people by their functions. Functional organization structure divides company onto departments basing on functional areas such as human resources, production or marketing.

Organizational chart is a type of diagram which presents a corporate structure as a tree, where the root is the head of a company, for example the President.

Data Flow Diagram - Order Processing

The first level of branches in this tree is a heads of different departments which submit directly to the President.

In such way you can add all workers to the diagram to completely depict the organizational structure of the company.

Moreover, using ConceptDraw you can create the corporate structure diagram from ready “smart” shapes with gradient color to get the clear picture of the hierarchy levels in the company organizational structure.

ConceptDraw has a set of sample organizational charts.

LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.LAN Network Diagram

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work. This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.Bus Network Topology *
