Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) with ConceptDraw PRO

Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method SSADM is the method which is used at projecting and analysis of information systems. SSADM is based on the data flow diagrams. At the description of data flows out of the system and into the system DFD, which denote boundaries of the system, are used.

Data Flow Diagram Examples

You need to draw the Data Flow Diagram? Use ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.The Data Flow Diagrams solution provides a numerous collection of Data Flow Diagram examples created according to Gane and Sarson, and Yourdon and Coad notations using the ConceptDraw PRO software.

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 PRO.

Data structure diagram with ConceptDraw PRO

Data structure diagram (DSD) is intended for description of conceptual models of data (concepts and connections between them) in the graphic format for more obviousness. Data structure diagram includes entities description, connections between them and obligatory conditions and requirements which connect them. Create Data structure diagram with ConceptDraw PRO.

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.

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Flowchart Symbols and Meaning - Provides a visual representation of basic flowchart symbols and their proposed use in professional workflow diagram, standard process flow diagram and communicating the structure of a well-developed web site, as well as their correlation in developing on-line instructional projects. See flowchart's symbols by specifics of process flow diagram symbols and workflow diagram symbols.

UML Flowchart Symbols

The UML diagram is a powerful tool which lets visually represent all system's components, the interactions between them and relationships with external user interface.
The Rapid UML solution for ConceptDraw PRO software offers diversity of UML flowchart symbols for drawing all types of UML diagrams.

UML Diagram

UML defines 13 types of diagrams: class (package), object, use case, sequence, collaboration, component, state machine, timing, interaction overview, composite structure, activity, and deployment.
Create unified modeling language (UML) diagrams with ConceptDraw.

Database Design

ConceptDraw PRO extended with IDEF Business Process Diagrams solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is an ideal software for effective database design and drawing IDEF diagrams visually representing all steps of database design process.

Data Flow Diagram Software

When studying a business process or system that involves the transfer of data, it is common to use a data flow diagram (DFD) to visualize how that data is processed. While initially used exclusively in regards to the flow of data through a computer system, DFDs are now employed as a business modelling tool, describing business events and interactions, or physical systems involving data storage and transfer.
ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful Data Flow Diagram Software thanks to the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
You can use the predesigned DFD vector objects that are grouped in 3 libraries of Data Flow Diagrams solution: Data Flow Diagrams Library; Gane-Sarson Notation Library; Yourdon and Coad Notation Library.

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.

Control and Information Architecture Diagrams (CIAD) with ConceptDraw PRO

One of the three main constituents of any enterprise is the Control and Information Architecture. The rest two are Production facilities and People and Organization.

Data Modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram

Data modeling is actively applied in analysis and uses wide set of methods for description the data requirements in a system. One of the most popular and well-known is the ERD method of database modeling.
The best ERD tool for the Mac and Windows is ConceptDraw PRO software extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park, which is sharpened for professional ERD drawing and data modeling with Entity Relationship Diagram.

Data Flow Diagram (DFD)

This example is created using ConceptDraw PRO enhanced with solution Data Flow Diagrams. This diagram shows one of the business processes to simplify and accelerate understanding, analysis, and representation.
