This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Basic Diagramming Solution from the Universal Diagramming area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Specification and Description Language (SDL) is used for creating the object-oriented diagrams, visualizing the processes of the state machines for the systems of communication, telecommunication, automotive, aviation and medical industries. SDL is a specification language for creating specifications, descriptions of the behavior, data, and inheritance for real-time systems.
For creating the SDL diagrams are used the building blocks such as: system definition, block agent, process.
Sample 1. SDL process game.
This sample shows the SDL Diagram of the process game.
Use the ready-to-use predesigned objects, templates and samples from the Basic Diagramming Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can create your own SDL Diagrams quick and easy.
The SDL Diagrams produced with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

In ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can produce ice hockey diagrams of any complexity for any presentaion needs, using a combination of tools. To adopt the sample below for presentation needs place positions and arrows onto different layers of your document and then make them visible one by one during a presentation.

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps.
Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.

Entity structure diagram (ESD) notations may be created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM same as any other diagram, including a Jackson Structured Programming (JSP) Diagram. Having the Jackson Structured Programming (JSP) Diagrams solution may simplify the work of drawing the needed illustration representing the given data within only a few minutes. Having the pre-made examples of the JSP diagrams, any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user is able to make his own unique as well as smart looking drawing in a fun and entertaining way.

Data modeling is actively applied in analysis and uses wide set of methods for description the data requirements in a system. One of the most popular and well-known is the ERD method of database modeling.
The best ERD tool for the Mac and Windows is ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park, which is sharpened for professional ERD drawing and data modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram.

While designing a conceptual data model, you should use appropriate software. For instance, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a user-friendly ER diagram tool that has a lot of samples and templates to facilitate your work. A clear entity-relationship diagram helps to define the relations between system’s components.
Software engineering is the section of a computer science engaged to design, realization, and support of complex software products. An ERD is a data modeling method that is widely applied in the software engineering practice. Commonly it is used for developing a structure of a a relational database. An entity relationship diagram is helpful for structuring and organizing databases that can be modeled using a relational structure. An entity relationship diagram is designed to depicts the interrelationships within the sets of entities which are accumulated in the database. Each entity represents a particular component of a data. Thus, ER diagrams depicts the logical structure of databases. ConceptDraw ER Diagrams solution provides software engineers with the professional tool for making entity-relationship diagrams.

Jackson System Development (JSD) is a linear method of system development created by Michael A. Jackson and John Cameron in the 1980s. It comprises the whole software life cycle directly or providing a framework for more specialized techniques.
When implementing the Jackson System Development method and designing JSD diagrams, you can succesfully use the powerful and helpful tools of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Analyze each identified action separately in the tree of all actions and then develop a preventive action in response to potential obstacles or circumstances have been identified as a risk.
The PDPC determines the risks when corrective action is not performed correctly. Also, it helps develop descriptions for preventive actions at the level of execution.
