Process Flow Chart Symbols
Process Flow Chart is a visual diagram which shows the processes and relationships between the major components in a system, and uses for this the special process flow chart symbols:
- special shapes to represent different types of actions and process steps,
- lines and arrows to represent relationships and sequence of steps.
It is incredibly convenient to use the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park for designing professional looking Process Flow Charts.
Flowcharts Solution offers 2 libraries with variety of commonly used process flow chart symbols - boxes, circles, diamonds and many other symbols which are used for easy construction attractive and visual Process Flow Charts.
Use of predesigned process flow chart symbols is the easiest way of drawing various types of professional looking flowcharts:
- Process Flow Chart,
- Business Process Flow Chart,
- Data Flow Chart,
- Program Flow Chart,
- System Flow Chart, etc.
You will only need to drag ready objects from the libraries into your document, arrange and connect them according to your flowchart idea.

To maintain big and complex mechanical systems, you need an appropriate education and tools. It’s needless to say that mechanical drawing is important part of any industrial project. There are a lot of standard symbols depicting valves, pumps, motors, etc.
This drawing illustrates the content of the Fluid Power Equipment library provided by the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. The solution is composed from the 8 libraries, containing about 500 elements related to mechanical engineering visualization. it will be helpful for drawing various schemes, charts and blueprints of pneumatic, and hydraulic equipment or other drawing related mechanical engineering. All drawings can be freely resized without loss of quality due to the vector graphics components of its facilities.

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling.
An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.

A flowchart maker is a software showing the interaction, sequence or organization. It also known as flowchart maker or ConceptDraw DIAGRAM standard supplied with different types of symbol collections: standard symbols, branded set and authored. It used strictly for enhancing scientific or business documents with abstract explanatory pictures.
Business graphic applications show a special knowledge representations and include many features for creating schematic pictures. These graphic tools are known as flowchart maker or flowchart maker software.

It is very difficult to get into database model idea without any examples. To create one, you can use Chen’s notation for Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD) and try to see all the peculiarities yourself. This notation describes entities and relations as basic geometric shapes like rectangles and diamonds.
Chen notation for Entity-relationship diagrams is used for designing relational databases. It depicts the database entities as a set of subjects. For example events, people, ideas, etc. All entities has common characteristics (attributes). Any object of the system is identified as the sole and unique. The name of entity should indicate the class or type of the the whole object, not a given example. The connection commonly represents a relationship between entities. Conceptdraw Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERD) solution provides the libraries with ready-to-use ERD element fitting Chen's notation objects and relationships.
