Structured-systems analysis and design method uses data flow diagrams to represent the process of data flowing through a system.

One of the ways to restore order in business processing is to create a cross-functional flowchart with swim lanes that would represent every step in production system. Another advantage of using swim lanes flowchart is that it represents not only processes, but people responsible for them.
Swim lane diagram is a kind of a process flow diagram. Its special feature is that it joins the features of process flow diagrams with organizational charts. Thus, a swim lane diagram display a participant of the business process in a conjunction with general flow of the business system. A swim lane diagram is looks similar to a swimming pool's lanes. Lanes can be horizontal and vertical. The lanes are pointed out relatively to resource name, which is assigned on implementation of the given part of the business process. ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution delivers the ability to design develop swim lanes flowcharts using the vector graphic objects of Swim Lanes library.
