"Michael Porter has described a category scheme consisting of three general types of strategies that are commonly used by businesses to achieve and maintain competitive advantage. These three generic strategies are defined along two dimensions: strategic scope and strategic strength. Strategic scope is a demand-side dimension and looks at the size and composition of the market you intend to target. Strategic strength is a supply-side dimension and looks at the strength or core competency of the firm. In particular he identified two competencies that he felt were most important: product differentiation and product cost (efficiency)." [Porter's generic strategies. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Shipping and receiving" contains 18 symbols of industrial shipping and receiving equipment.
Use the design elements library "Shipping and receiving" to draw factory warehouse equipment layout plans, floor plans of shipping and receiving centers with equipment for hauling, transporting, and distributing manufactured goods, freight, cargo, and stock from plants and industrial facilities using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Freight transport, or shipping, is a key in the value chain in manufacturing.
While all modes of transport are used for cargo transport, there is high differentiation between the nature of the cargo transport, in which mode is chosen.
Logistics refers to the entire process of transferring products from producer to consumer, including storage, transport, transshipment, warehousing, material-handling and packaging, with associated exchange of information.
Containerization, with the standardization of ISO containers on all vehicles and at all ports, has revolutionized international and domestic trade, offering huge reduction in transshipment costs. Traditionally, all cargo had to be manually loaded and unloaded into the haul of any ship or car; containerization allows for automated handling and transfer between modes, and the standardized sizes allow for gains in economy of scale in vehicle operation."

Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

Over the past few centuries, data visualization has evolved so much that we use it every day in all areas of our lives. Many believe that infographic is an effective tool of storytelling, as well as analytics, and that it is able to overcome most of the language and educational barriers. Understanding the mechanisms of human perception will help you to understand how abstract forms and colors used in data visualization can transmit information more efficient than long paragraphs of text.
The vector stencils library "Activities BPMN 1.2" contains 16 activity symbols for drawing business process diagrams (Business Process Model and Notation) using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"An activity is represented with a rounded-corner rectangle and describes the kind of work which must be done.
A task represents a single unit of work that is not or cannot be broken down to a further level of business process detail without diagramming the steps in a procedure (which is not the purpose of BPMN).
Used to hide or reveal additional levels of business process detail. When collapsed, a sub-process is indicated by a plus sign against the bottom line of the rectangle; when expanded, the rounded rectangle expands to show all flow objects, connecting objects, and artifacts.
Has its own self-contained start and end events; sequence flows from the parent process must not cross the boundary.
A form of sub-process in which all contained activities must be treated as a whole; i.e., they must all be completed to meet an objective, and if any one of them fails, they must all be compensated (undone). Transactions are differentiated from expanded sub-processes by being surrounded by a double border.
Call Activity.
A point in the process where a global process or a global Task is reused. A call activity is differentiated from other activity types by a bolded border around the activity area." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The Restaurant plan example shows furniture layout in the restaurant.
"Restaurants may be classified or distinguished in many different ways. The primary factors are usually the food itself (e.g. vegetarian, seafood, steak); the cuisine (e.g. Italian, Chinese, Indian, French, Thai) and/ or the style of offering (e.g. tapas bar, a sushi train, a tastet restaurant, a buffet restaurant or a yum cha restaurant). Beyond this, restaurants may differentiate themselves on factors including speed (see fast food), formality, location, cost, service, or novelty themes (such as automated restaurants).
Restaurants range from inexpensive and informal lunching or dining places catering to people working nearby, with simple food served in simple settings at low prices, to expensive establishments serving refined food and fine wines in a formal setting. In the former case, customers usually wear casual clothing. In the latter case, depending on culture and local traditions, customers might wear semi-casual, semi-formal or formal wear. Typically, customers sit at tables, their orders are taken by a waiter, who brings the food when it is ready. After eating, the customers then pay the bill." [Restaurant. Wikipedia]
