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.

Process Flowchart

ConceptDraw is Professional business process mapping software for making process flow diagram, workflow diagram, general flowcharts and technical illustrations for business documents. It is includes rich examples, templates, process flowchart symbols. ConceptDraw flowchart maker allows you to easier create a process flowchart. Use a variety of drawing tools, smart connectors, flowchart symbols and shape libraries to create flowcharts of complex processes, process flow diagrams, procedures and information exchange.

Data Flow Diagram Process

This example is created using ConceptDraw PRO enhanced with solution Data Flow Diagrams. It shows the process of account receivable.

Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram) DFD Example

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.

ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect tool for Designing and planning tasks; Developing Visualization Solutions; Project Planning (Gantt Charts, Timelines, Project Schedules).

Types of Flowcharts

A Flowchart is a graphically representation of the process, algorithm or the step-by-step solution of the problem. There are ten types of Flowcharts. Using the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park you can easy and quickly design the Flowchart of any of these types.

Flow chart Example. Warehouse Flowchart

Warehouse Flowcharts are different diagrams describing wharehousing and inventory menagement processes. Typical purposes of warehouse flowcharts are evaluating warehouse performance and organizational performance, measuring efficiency of customer service. This type of workflow diagrams can be used for identifying any disconnection between business activities and business objectives.
Standard warehousing process flow diagram and standard workflow diagram used for process identification for further evaluating effectiveness and profitability of overall business process. Use the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park to design your own workflow diagrams, process flow diagram and flow charts.

Amazon Web Services Diagrams diagramming tool for architecture

The AWS Architecture Diagrams solution includes icons, sample and templates for several Amazon Web Services products and resources, to be used when creating architecture diagrams. The icons are designed to be simple so that you can easily incorporate them in your diagrams and put them in your whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters or any technical material you like. Here you will find an official collection of AWS resources that will help you build great AWS Architecture diagrams.

ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology

When using a shapes′ center connection the connection becomes dynamic, the connector will trace the contour of the object, when moving the object inside your diagram.

Using any other connection point provides a static connection, when you move connected objects the connector stays attached to the same point.

DFD Flowchart Symbols

A Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a graphical technique which allows effectively model and analyze the information processes and systems. The ability to fast and easy create the DFDs is made possible with Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. For designing the Data Flow Diagrams are used simple DFD flowchart symbols which are connected each other by arrows depicting the data flow from one step to another.

ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology

Imagine the diagram which is looking smart. That is how ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology or Smart connectors work.

Thanks to auto-routing feature connectors flow around objects. But if you want some background objects that the connectors flow through - that is also possible to do.
