Value Stream Mapping Symbols
Value Stream Mapping is a graphical technique that provides possibilities to improve analysis of a manufacturing process, at the stage of the transferring information or materials that required to deliver a product or service to the customer.
VSM symbols are the best for a production process designing.
Value Stream Mapping ensures a core analysis' items in a comprehensive graphical approach:
- The interplay between all of a manufacturing processes.
- The communications and materials during the complete production process.
- Efficiencies and losses of complex systems.
- Elaborate and implement actions that push forward organization's culture changes.
The entire Value Stream Mapping method uses a graphical representation of the manufacturing process, factors' pros and cons, that all stakeholders can easily understand.
The new Value Stream Mapping solution found in the ConceptDraw Solution Park continues to extend the range of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. This solution extends software with several templates and samples, also value stream mapping symbols for drawing Value Stream Diagrams.
Value Stream Mapping Symbols
Central production scheduling or control department, person or operation.
It is the usual starting point for material flow.
Electronic Information Flow
Electronic flow such as EDI, Internet, intranets, LANs, WANs.
Material Flow/ PUSH Arrow
"Pushing" of Material from One Process to the Next Process.
Pull movement between internal steps.
Process, operation, machine or department, through which material flows.
All these value stream mapping symbols from the Value Stream Mapping library of Value Stream Mapping Solution were professionally designed to facilitate a drawing process for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users.
Example 1. Value Stream Mapping Symbols
Besides, all these objects are vector objects, so you can resize them without loss of quality, change their color to make your maps more bright and attractive.
Example 2. Value Stream Mapping Sample
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the value stream mapping symbols from the Value Stream Mapping Solution and shows the value stream in a manufacturing, production control and shipping processes. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.
Use the Value Stream Mapping Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own professional looking Value Stream Maps quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Value Stream Mapping Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.

Any business process consists from a number of tasks carrying out the certain business goal. It is useful to diagram business processes to ensure that they are as foolproof, logical and sequential as possible. This business process diagram describes a typical booking process flow by the example of a cab booking process. It can be used as a roadmap for any booking system implementation. Diagramming a business process allows you to look at the entire project and take into account all types of possible scenarios. Business process diagram helps you investigate and clarify the process thoroughly so that you can find out how it can be improved. Business process diagram supports team communications by ensuring that each process element is clear and everyone in the team is on the same page.
Sometimes your company brings you less profit than you expect it to be, and it’s difficult to reveal the causes. Maybe it’s time to learn new technologies, because business diagram are easily developed by means of special software, so you won’t make any extra effort. In return, you will increase your productivity and get more done in a less time.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

Unfortunately, a man can’t predict the future and no one is safe from natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes or fires. Nonetheless, what you can do to ensure safety for you and your relatives is to create an emergency plan, so everyone will know what to do if emergency happens. Keep that plan simple and train it several times a year so that no one could forget any details of it.
Fire and emergency plans are important to supply people with a visual safety solution. This diagram presents a set of standard symbols used to depict fire safety, emergency, and associated information. Using clear and standard symbols on fire emergency plans provides the coherence of collective actions , helps to avoid embarrassment, and improves communications in an emergent situation. The fire emergency symbols are intended for the general emergency and fire service, as well as for building plans ,engineering drawings and insurance diagrams. They can be used during fire extinguishing and evacuation operations, as well as trainings. It includes vector symbols for emergency management mapping, emergency evacuation diagrams and plans.

It's no secret that there is a list of skills that every average system administrator should have. And it's important to be able to manage domains via active directory technologies. The best way to keep all the details in mind is to draw a diagram representing users, groups and domains.
This diagram represents an Active Directory Services (Active Directory Domain Services). It can be helpful for system and network administrators to organize a network physical and logical elements (domains, data bases, servers, network equipment, end-user computers etc.) into a secure and logical structure. The logical structure of Active Directory is a hierarchical organization of all network components. The data that is stored in Active Directory comes from some diverse sources. The Active Directory diagram created using ConceptDraw Active Directory Diagram solution. It shows allocating group policies and functions assigned to end users. It helps to plan, manage and maintain the certain user access scenario.
