How to Create a Floor Plan Using ConceptDraw PRO

Making a floor plan is the best way to get a handle on how to organize your living space, and find out what could be changed. Creating a floor plan to scale is a challenge of the home and interior design process and can be noticeably helpful for visualizing things like furniture layout. You can use ConceptDraw PRO to produce layouts of real estate properties. ConceptDraw PRO contains the large quantity of pre-designed vector objects that you can use for quick and easy designing such floor plans. You  can easily determine the size of the rooms and distances in you drawing. The ability to create a floor plan is delivered by the Floor Plans solution. This solution extends ConceptDraw PRO with libraries that contains over 500 objects of floor plan elements. There is a set of special objects that displays the sizes, corners, squares and other technical details using the current measurements of units. Read more

How to Create a Plant Layout Design

A plant construction process begins from a plant layout stage - an engineering stage used to design, analyze and finally choose the suitable configurations for a manufacturing plant. Plant Layout issues are core to any enterprise and are challenged in all types of manufacturing process. The sufficiency of layout influences the efficiency of subsequent operations. It is an important background for efficient manufacturing and also has a great deal with many questions. Once the place of the plant has been determined, the next important task before the management of the plant is to plan appropriate layout for the enterprise. Plant layout is used to create the most effective physical arrangement of machinery and equipment, with the plant building in such a manner so as to make quickest and cheapest way from a raw material to the shipment of the completed product Making a plan that shows the location of industrial equipment involves many different elements that can be managed using Con Read more

Create Floor Plans Easily with ConceptDraw PRO

How to create Floor Plan Design easy and effectively? You can invite an interior designer and trust this work to him, which is usually expensive and result may not always meet your expectations. Another way is to design it yourself, but at this case you need to have special skills, knowledges and abilities, among them basic knowledge of the composition rules, color theory, materials science and software for interior design development. The ability to use specialized software for drawing is especially valuable, useful and saves your time. ConceptDraw PRO is one of the best among similar software, it offers extensive functionality, powerful tools, a lot of features, and is simple for using, so can be applied by everyone without efforts.

"The cosmic distance ladder (also known as the extragalactic distance scale) is the succession of methods by which astronomers determine the distances to celestial objects. A real direct distance measurement of an astronomical object is possible only for those objects that are "close enough" (within about a thousand parsecs) to Earth. The techniques for determining distances to more distant objects are all based on various measured correlations between methods that work at close distances with methods that work at larger distances. Several methods rely on a standard candle, which is an astronomical object that has a known luminosity.
The ladder analogy arises because no one technique can measure distances at all ranges encountered in astronomy. Instead, one method can be used to measure nearby distances, a second can be used to measure nearby to intermediate distances, and so on. Each rung of the ladder provides information that can be used to determine the distances at the next higher rung." [Cosmic distance ladder. Wikipedia]
The astronomy diagram sample "Extragalactic distance ladder" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Astronomy solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

Star Network Topology

Star is a basic computer network topology in which all nodes (computers and peripheral devices) of the network are connected to the central hub or switch with a point-to-point connection, forming a physical network segment. Such network segment can function separately or as a part of complex network topology. The switch is a server, the peripherals are the clients. The large workload and functions of network management are entrusted on the central computer, all information exchange goes through it, so it must to be obligatory the most powerful. The star network topology is a simple topology for design and implementation. Its advantages are high performance, flexible administration capabilities, simplicity of adding additional nodes and search of faults, the fact that a failure of one workstation doesn't affect the work of entire network. But the failure of central hub will result the failure of whole network or network segment - it's the main disadvantage. Use the ConceptDraw PRO with Computer and Networks solution to designing Star Network Topology Diagrams fast and easy. Read more
