When we start to speak about databases, we must always mention database structure visualization. One of the most common ways to do it is to create an entity relationship diagram, and to put appropriate symbols on it. It is important either for database projecting and for its' future maintenance.
Entity Relationship Diagram describes data elements and their relationships within a database. There are a set of special symbols that depict each element of an entity relationship diagram. Entities - represents some stable components such as supplier, employee, invoice, client, etc. Relation symbols show how the entities interact. Attributes define characteristics of the relationships. Attributes can be one-to-one or many-to-many. Physical symbols is used in the physical models. They represent items such as fields, tables, types and keys. ERD physical symbols are the building material for the database. Notation lines are used to illustrate the relationships. The most common method is Crow’s Feet notation. You can use ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution to represent a database using the Entity-Relationship model.

Venn Diagrams visualize all possible logical relations between several sets and are widely used in mathematics, logic, statistics, marketing, sociology, etc.
This Venn Diagram shows the relative complement of the set A with respect to the set B. It is the set of the elements in B, but not in A. In other words it is the set-theoretic difference B-A.

Every interior design project starts from a deep understanding of all the utilities used in the building. In the first place, plumbing projection stage is crucial for the future design because it is very important to fit all the elements in their places correctly. Kitchen interior, for instance, will depend on the plumbing very much.

Suppose, you do not need to see grill in your bathroom and the toilet in your kitchen, you need to give the proper consideration to the plumbing and piping planning. The ConceptDraw Plumbing and Piping Plans solution delivers the kit of 4 vector libraries containing more than 120 elements as pumps, tanks, pipes, boilers and other bathroom equipment for depicting Plumbing & Piping Plans. Using the Plumbing library, enables designing plumbing and piping interior designs, schemes and blueprints of water supply and sewerage systems.

What is a computer network? This is a set of devices and systems that are connected to each other (logically or physically) and communicate with each other. This could include servers, computers, phones, routers, and so on. The size of this network can reach the size of the Internet, and can consist of only two devices connected by a cable.
This sample shows the connection scheme of the home WLAN equipment to the Internet.
