Swim Lanes

Swim lanes are visual elements used in Business Process Maps, Process Flow Diagrams and Flowcharts. Parallel lines which can be arranged horizontally or vertically divide the diagram into lanes. Processes and decisions are visually grouped in these lanes, the arrows between them can be used to represent how information or material is passed between the subprocesses of a business process.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Business Process Mapping Solution from the Business Processes Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is ideal for drawing Business Process Maps and Swim Lanes Flowcharts.

Network Diagram Software. LAN Network Diagrams. Physical Office Network Diagrams →

Local area network connects computers and other network appliances within an area, such as office building or a campus. It can be difficult to provide such network without a predesigned plan. For these purposes you can use network diagram software, which helps you to create LAN network diagrams and office network diagrams quickly and effortless. This will speed up your work and you can save the diagram for the future network improvements. The following diagram illustrates a network topology of the small office. LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.LAN Network Diagram

Workflow Diagram Symbols →

A competent delegation of responsibilities between workers guarantees business success in most cases. At first sight, it might seem that workflow diagram symbols are quite similar to a regular flowchart. But workflow diagram is a more accurate way to present working processes. Workflow diagrams are helpful for a working process analyzation, to depict a pathway of process issues, personalize responsibilities and identify resources that will help to optimize a workflow. Generally, Workflow diagram deploys flowchart symbols for displaying work process steps and relationships. But, often it require some additions and improvements to become more professional and illustrative. The Workflow solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides the user with a big library of symbols that are designed especially for workflow diagrams.Workflow Diagram Symbols *
