Pie Chart Software
A common enough method of graphic representation of the structure of statistical collections is a pie chart, as the whole idea is very clearly expressed in a circle, which represents the entire set. The relative magnitude of each value is represented as a circle sector, area of which corresponds to the contribution of this value in the sum of values. This type of diagramming is convenient to use when you need to show the value of each share in the total volume. Sectors may be depicted in a general circle or be separately arranged at a small distance from each other.
Pie charts are widely used in the reports, as they are visually appealing. The other side of the coin is, however, that pie charts are very simplified chart type that can not provide data well. Consider the possibility to use pie charts only after data processing, which results in a small number of data points.
For pie charts, each data group is displayed in a separate slice on the diagram. It is necessary for a pie chart to add at least one data field and one category field. If you add more than one data field to the pie chart, two data fields are displayed in the same graph.

While calculating the pie chart shares some values like empty, negative or zero are not taken into account. Therefore, these values are not displayed in the pie chart. If you want to visualize the values of these types in the diagram, you should choose a chart type that is different from a pie chart.
Unlike most other types of charts, the legend to the pie chart shows the individual data points instead of individual series.
At least two values are required for a pie chart to allow valid comparison between the two proportional shares.
If a pie chart contains only one color, make sure that you have a category field to group by. If the pie chart contains no categories, it performs statistical processing of the data fields values to get one a value for display.

The activity of any organization is more or less branchy network of processes. The description of these processes is a hard technical task which requires definite methodology and standards.
According to the IDEF0 standard any process can be described in the form of a block (Activity Box) which has inputs and outputs. The process consists in transformation of inputs into outputs under the influence of the management and in the presence of necessary resources. Outputs of the given process later on can be either inputs for the next process or resources, or management means.

When talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems.
The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them.
The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.

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.

Activity Network Diagram - This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Seven Management and Planning Tools solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the PERT (Program Evaluation Review Technique) chart of the request on proposal. A request for proposal (RFP) is a request of the company or the organization to potential suppliers to submit the business proposals for service or goods that it is interested to purchase. The RFP is represented on the initial procurement stage and allows to define the risks and benefits.
