Scrum is a popular iterative and incremental agile framework for managing product and software development. For planning a project, tracking the defects, bugs, work and blocking issues when developing software, viewing and reporting a progress, the teams working with Scrum methodology use the product backlog items (PBIs), bug work item types (WITs), reports and dashboards. When defining a product backlog item, you can focus on the value which will be received by your customers without description how this will be achieved. Working in sprints, the teams can define tasks which automatically link to PBIs and bugs.

Electrical plan is a document that is developed during the first stage of the building design. This scheme is composed of conventional images or symbols of components that operate by means of electric energy. To simplify the creation of these schemes you can use house electrical plan software, which will not require a long additional training to understand how to use it. You only need to install the necessary software ant it’s libraries and you’ll have one less problem during the building projection.
Any building contains a number of electrical systems, including switches, fixtures, outlets and other lightening equipment. All these should be depicted in a building electrical plans and included to general building documentation. This home electrical plan displays electrical and telecommunication devices placed to a home floor plan. On the plan, each electrical device is referenced with the proper symbol. Electrical symbols are used for universal recognition of the building plan by different persons who will be working on the construction. Not all possible electric symbols used on a certain plan, so the symbols used in the current home plan are included to a legend. The electrical home plan may be added as a separate document to a complete set of building plans.

What is information architecture? Information architecture (IA) is a broad and abstract term. At the most general sense the information architecture describes the structure of a system, how the different pieces of information are related at the system and represents their relationships. The information architecture term was introduced by Richard Saul Wurman in 1975 and now is commonly used in the context of websites and intranets, information structures and computer systems.

Making a workflow charts means that you need to depict consistently all processes engaged to the workflow process. Then, you should connect them with symbols meaning study and analysis. Next, add symbols of decisions. A work flow diagram made precisely and correctly can help to clarify your work flow to any person.
A circuit diagram or wiring diagram uses symbols to represent parts of a circuit.
Electrical and electronic circuits can be complicated. Making a drawing of the connections to all the component parts in the circuit's load makes it easier to understand how circuit components are connected. Drawings for electronic circuits are called "circuit diagrams". Drawings for electrical circuits are called "wiring diagrams".
