Pyramid Chart Examples

Pyramid Charts and Triangle Diagrams are used to visually structure the topics and progressively order the quantitative data. They allow to illustrate hierarchical structure of the topics, proportional, interconnected and containment relations among the topics. The multilevel Pyramids and Triangle diagrams are constructed oriented up or down and divided into several horizontal slices. They are effectively used to represent marketing strategies, social strategies, information systems, market value, etc., to illustrate presentations, websites, documents, reports in business, finances, sales, management, marketing, media, training, consulting, and many other fields. To maximize the efficiency in drawing the Pyramid Charts, use the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Pyramid Diagrams solution from Marketing area, which contains the set of Pyramid Chart examples, samples, templates and vector design elements of triangular diagrams and pyramids with different quantity of levels for various needs.

The vector stencils library "UML class diagrams" contains 38 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"... classes are represented with boxes which contain three parts:
(1) The top part contains the name of the class. It is printed in Bold, centered and the first letter capitalized.
(2) The middle part contains the attributes of the class. They are left aligned and the first letter is lower case.
(3) The bottom part gives the methods or operations the class can take or undertake. They are also left aligned and the first letter is lower case. ...
To indicate a classifier scope for a member, its name must be underlined. ...
An association can be named, and the ends of an association can be adorned with role names, ownership indicators, multiplicity, visibility, and other properties. ...
Aggregation ... is graphically represented as a hollow diamond shape on the containing class end of the tree with a single line that connects the contained class to the containing class.
... graphical representation of a composition relationship is a filled diamond shape on the containing class end of the tree of lines that connect contained class(es) to the containing class.
... graphical representation of a Generalization is a hollow triangle shape on the superclass end of the line (or tree of lines) that connects it to one or more subtypes.
... graphical representation of a Realization is a hollow triangle shape on the interface end of the dashed line (or tree of lines) that connects it to one or more implementers. A plain arrow head is used on the interface end of the dashed line that connects it to its users.
Multiplicity ... representation of an association is a line with an optional arrowhead indicating the role of the object(s) in the relationship, and an optional notation at each end indicating the multiplicity of instances of that entity (the number of objects that participate in the association).
Entity classes ... are drawn as circles with a short line attached to the bottom of the circle. Alternatively, they can be drawn as normal classes with the «entity» stereotype notation above the class name." [Class diagram. Wikipedia]

How to Resize Objects

When creating diagram using ConceptDraw PRO, you can select, move, resize and rotate objects. After selecting an object (or objects) in a document, you can change it position, resize it or move an object to the desired position. The sizes of objects in ConceptDraw PRO can be changed by simple dragging, or you can set a particular size of any object. Using ConceptDraw PRO, you can re-size an object on the page using the absolute measurements instead of a mouse. You can make quick work of designing complex drawing using a combination of different-sized items. Read more
