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.

A waterfall model describes software development process as a sequence of phases that flow downwards. SSADM is one of the implementations of waterfall method. It’s easier to learn about structured systems analysis and design method (SSADM) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM because this software has appropriate tools for creating data flow diagrams. You can use all the three main techniques of SSADM method with special tools and predesigned templates.
This data flow diagram illustrates the Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method. This method method considers analysis, projecting and documenting of information systems. Data flow models are the most important elements of SSADM and data flow diagrams are usually used for their description. It includes the analysis and description of a system as well as visualization of possible issues.

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams.
This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.

The reliability is a cornerstone for any corporate computer network. If you want to provide a high fault tolerance, a mesh network topology would be the solution. The main advantage of this network is that every node can work as a commutator, although it’s not easy to set up this kind of network.
A mesh network topology may be full, or partial. Full mesh network means that each node of the network (computer, workstation or other equipment) is connected directly to each of the other nodes. A partial mesh topology means that a part of nodes are connected with a whole network, and the other part of nodes are only connected to those equipment, they exchange the majority of data. This illustration shows schematic diagram of a partial mesh network containing six nodes. Each node is represented as a circles and connections are drawn as straight lines. The connections may be both wired and wireless. This scheme can be used to make the specific logical or physical network diagrams by means the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.
