SDL Flowchart Symbols
SDL diagram is a type of diagram which uses the graphical elements of Specification and Description Language (SDL) for designing the object-oriented diagrams, for modeling state machines in communication, telecommunication, aviation, automotive and medical industries, for creating specifications and descriptions of behavior, data, and inheritance for interactive real-time systems, reactive and distributed systems. SDL diagram is constructed of standard SDL elements (objects) which are designed according to International Telecommunications Union standards.
The SDL diagram consists of three building blocks: system definition which defines the major blocks (nodes) of the system such as clients and servers, block charts which show the details and process diagram which show the processing steps in each block. Arrows connect the objects and show the flow of control. The Start object shows beginning of the diagram.
Drawing the diagrams we try to find in help the powerful software and now we have the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM The ability easily create the SDL diagrams is made possible thanks to unique Specification and Description Language (SDL) Solution from the Industrial Engineering Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with 2 libraries - SDL Connectors and SDL Diagrams that contain 71 predesigned SDL flowchart symbols.
Example 1. SDL Diagrams Symbols Library
Turn attention for this enormous collection of predesigned vector objects which let design the SDL diagram of any complexity and degree of detailing in mere minutes.
Example 2. SDL Connectors Symbols Library
Try design your own SDL diagram in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and make sure that is very easy! With powerful drawing tools of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you don't need to be an artist, you can concentrate on your work and simply drag and use ready objects developed for you by professional designers.
Example 3. SDL Flowchart Symbols
Follow the next few steps to create the SDL diagram:
- add the objects to your diagram simply dragging them from the SDL Diagrams library to your document page and arrange them;
Example 4. Adding the Objects to SDL Diagram
- add text to the objects - double-click an object to activate the text editing mode and type the text;
Example 5. Adding the Text to Objects
- connect the diagram objects using the connectors from the SDL Connectors library and add to text to connectors the same way you add text to objects, if needed.
Example 6. SDL Architecture
Each SDL diagram designed in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM can be then easy printed to share with colleagues, send via e-mail directly from the program, exported to various formats, including PPT, PDF, MS Visio, HTML, and many other popular graphic formats.
Example 7. Specification and Description Language (SDL) Solution
Owing to the Specification and Description Language (SDL) solution and its powerful tools, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software is the best for easy drawing the SDL Diagrams to represent telecommunication systems, automotive systems, remote control systems, railway control systems, robotic systems, and more other.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
The use case diagram (behavior scenarios, precedents) is the initial conceptual representation of the system during its design and development. This diagram consists of actors, use cases and relationships between them. When constructing a diagram, common notation elements can also be used: notes and extension mechanisms.
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Use Case Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the types of user’s interactions with the system and is used at the registration and working with the database system.

There are numerous articles about the advantages of flowcharting, creating business graphics and developing different charts. Nevertheless, these articles are almost useless without the main component - the examples of flowcharts, org charts and without a fine example, it is difficult to get all the conveniences of creating diagrams. You can find tons of templates and vivid examples on Solution Park.
This illustration shows a variety of business diagrams that can be created using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. It comprises a different fields of business activities: management, marketing, networking, software and database development along with design of infographics and business illustrations. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a huge set of sample drawings including business process modeling diagrams,, network diagrams, UML diagrams, orgcharts, DFD, flowcharts, ERD, geographical maps and more.

If you ever tried programming, you could face a lot of problems as a beginner. To help yourself, create a flowchart to follow an algorithm logic. Flowchart represents a program as a sequence of steps depicted in special symbols for each type of action.
This image of the interactive diagram made in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM applying the Live Objects technology. The diagram shows the effect of Selection Sort algorithm. The left part of the chart is the input area. The diagram in the central part of the drawing is a flow chart showing of the selection sort algorithm. The flowchart includes basic flowchart symbols, that represent various stages of algorithm. The flowchart symbols are connected with arrows ended lines, that depict the direction of the process flow. On the right side — the result is displayed.
It’s very simple, convenient and quick to design professional looking Flowcharts of any complexity using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park which provides a wide set of predesigned objects, templates, samples and Flowchart examples.

A Process Flow Diagram (PFD) is a diagram which shows the relationships between the main components in a system. Process Flow Diagrams are widely used by engineers in chemical and process engineering, they allows to indicate the general flow of plant process streams and equipment, helps to design the petroleum refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants, natural gas processing plants, and many other industrial facilities.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with powerful tools of Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is effective for drawing: Process Flow Diagram, Flow Process Diagram, Business Process Flow Diagrams.

There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart.
This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.
