Data Flow Diagram Symbols. DFD Library

Data Flow Diagrams show information transfers and process steps of a system. The general concept is an approach of a depicting how occurs input in a system, further processes and what runs out. The aim of DFD is in accomplishing of understanding between developers and users. Data flow diagrams are maintained with other methods of structured systems analysis.

Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagram (DFD) is the part of the SSADM method (Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology), intended for analysis and information systems projection. Data flow diagrams are intended for graphical representation of data flows in the information system and for analysis of data processing during the structural projection. Data flow diagram often used in connection with human process and can be displayed as workflow diagram. The critical Process Flow Diagram is another flowchart technique for designing data flow in connection with organizational processes. The critical Process flow diagram may use different range of symbols than a classic workflow diagram.

Data Flow Diagrams

Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) are graphical representations of the "flow" of data through an information system. Data flow diagrams can be used for the visualization of data processing. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Data Flow Diagrams Solution is a powerful data flow diagramming application that allows you quickly create any Data Flow Diagrams including the data storages, external entities, functional transforms, data flows, as well as control transforms and signals.

Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram)

Data flow diagrams (DFDs) reveal relationships among and between the various components in a program or system. DFDs are an important technique for modeling a system’s high-level detail by showing how input data is transformed to output results through a sequence of functional transformations.
Example of DFD for Online Store shows the Data Flow Diagram for online store and interactions between the Visitors, Customers and Sellers, as well as Website Information and User databases.

Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols

Creating an entity-relationship (ER) model is to visually represent the structure of a business database, where data equates to entities (or objects) that are linked by defined relationships expressing dependencies and requirements. By nature it is an abstract visualization, the first step in the design process towards creating a logical and functional database.
ERD symbols used for professional ERD drawing are collected in libraries from the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

Flow Chart Symbols

Flowcharts are used in designing and documenting simple processes or programs. Like other types of diagrams, they help visualize what is going on and thereby help understand a process, and perhaps also find flaws, bottlenecks, and other less-obvious features within it. There are many different types of flowcharts, and each type has its own repertoire of boxes and notational conventions.
Flowchart diagrams consists of symbols of process, decision, data and document, data base, termination or initiation processes, processing loops and conditions. To create an drawn flowchart use professional flowchart maker of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
