ERD Symbols and Meanings

Crow's foot notation is used in Barker's Notation, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) and information engineering. Crow's foot diagrams represent entities as boxes, and relationships as lines between the boxes. Different shapes at the ends of these lines represent the cardinality of the relationship.
The Chen's ERD notation is still used and is considered to present a more detailed way of representing entities and relationships.
To create an ERD, software engineers mainly turn to dedicated drawing software, which contain the full notation resources for their specific database design - ERD symbols and meanings. CS Odessa has released an all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for their powerful drawing program, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. Venn Diagram as a Truth Table

Venn diagrams are illustrations used in the branch of mathematics known as set theory. They show the mathematical or logical relationship between different groups of things (sets). A Venn diagram shows all the possible logical relations between the sets.

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them.
The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.

ERD Symbols and Meanings

The vector stencils library "Heating equipment" contains 42 symbols of regenerators, intercoolers, heaters, and condensers.
Use these shapes for drawing cooling systems, heat recovery systems, thermal, heat transfer and mechanical design, and process flow diagrams (PFD) in the ConceptDraw PRO software extended with the Chemical and Process Engineering solution from the Chemical and Process Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

UML State Machine Diagram.Design Elements

UML state machine's goal is to overcome the main limitations of traditional finite-state machines while retaining their main benefits.
ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML State Machine library.

The Business Diagrams Solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with an extensive collection of professionally designed illustrative samples and a wide variety of vector stencils libraries, which are the real help for all business-related people, business analysts, business managers, business advisers, marketing experts, PR managers, knowledge workers, scientists, and other stakeholders allowing them to design the bright, neat, expressive and attractive Bubble Diagrams, Circle-Spoke Diagrams, Circular Arrows Diagrams, and Venn Diagrams with different quantity of sets in just minutes; and then successfully use them in documents, reports, statistical summaries, and presentations of any style.

UML Class Diagram Constructor

UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the: classes of a system, attributes, operations, and the relationships between them.
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM includes the UML Class Diagram library that helps you to design the UML Class Diagram quick and easy. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from the library into your document to create the UML Class Diagram.

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving

In the Venn Diagrams solution, there are the pre-made examples that can be always used for making the unique, great looking diagrams, such as the 2-set Venn ones of any needed colour, the 3-set one, the 4-set ones and the 5-set ones. Having the already previously created samples of the Venn diagrams can help any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user make it possible to make the needed drawing within only a few minutes by editing the existing ones.

Timeline Diagrams

Timeline Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming software with samples, templates and libraries of specially developed smart vector design elements of timeline bars, time intervals, milestones, events, today marker, legend, and many other elements with custom properties, helpful for professional drawing clear and intuitive Timeline Diagrams. Use it to design simple Timeline Diagrams and designate only the main project stages, or highly detailed Timeline Diagrams depicting all project tasks, subtasks, milestones, deadlines, responsible persons and other description information, ideal for applying in presentations, reports, education materials, and other documentation.
