Process Flow Diagrams
“A process flow diagram (PFD) is a diagram commonly used in chemical and process engineering to indicate the general flow of plant processes and equipment. The PFD displays the relationship between major equipment of a plant facility and does not show minor details such as piping details and designations. Another commonly used term for a PFD is a flowsheet.”

NINE RELATED HOW TO's:
Describing a workflow or approval process can take hours and be too complicated, especially since there are options to do it quickly and vividly. Diagrams called flowcharts replace long paragraphs of boring text and represent information in a graphic way. You can draw one on paper or you can use flowchart software to do it quickly and scalable. This kind of software is easy to use and you don’t need any special skills to start using it. In addition, there are a lot examples and predesigned templates on the Internet.
Flowcharts are a best tool for staking out a huge and complex process into some small readable parts. Surely, flowcharts can be drawn manually but the use of standard symbols that make it clear for a wide audience makes a software tool preferred for this task. The core for a successful flowchart is its simplicity. That is why often before beginning making flowchart through software, people draw the sketch on a piece of paper. Designing an effective flowchart means the combination of the data needed to be shown and the simplicity with which you depict it.

Engineering students usually have huge amount of homework. Learning how to develop a technical drawing is one of the necessary skills. Luckily, at the present time, there’s no need to draw it on paper, because there a lot of software tools for it.
This drawing represents the Bearing symbols library, that is the part of the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. Bearings are the important components of any movable mechanism. The function of bearing is to align, guide, and support the moving parts in any mechanical construction. Usually they are located between moving and stationary parts, it works as a connection point between them. Using Mechanical Engineering solution and ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one can effortlessly draw engineering diagrams of any complexity.

Any factory needs a clear scheme of all the equipment used in the manufacture processes. So, if you want to place all your machines and equipment on one diagram, you need a good diagramming tool for that. For instance, you can find all the design elements you might need, such as lathes, milling machines or saws on ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park in Plant Layout Plans solution in appropriate libraries.
This drawing represents the Machines and Equipment library delivered by ConceptDraw Plant Layout Plans solution. This vector library is supplied along with other libraries related to industrial architecture planning and interior design.
Just planning the proper facilities in a proper right place, allows to manufacture a product in the most effective and economic way. Objects containing in these libraries will be helpful for architects and engineers dealing with industrial buildings design. They are intended to use for designing layouts of plants, warehouses, manufacturing workshop etc.

In general, you can use any icons to represent network equipment on a diagram. However, there are some icons, for instance, Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols, that are recognizable worldwide. Using those icons you can create Cisco network topology diagrams in minutes and share them anywhere.
The icons depicting Cisco network equipment are recognized and generally applied as standard images for designing network diagrams. They are free to used , but can not be reworked. Cisco network diagrams are created to depict how signals processed on the network equipment and end-user computers and how data transfer through LAN or WLAN between nodes. The vector graphic library of ConceptDraw CISCO Network Diagrams solution includes about 90 icons of Cisco network equipment for designing computer network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
