## Cross-Functional Flowcharts

Cross-functional flowcharts are powerful and useful tool for visualizing and analyzing complex business processes which requires involvement of multiple people, teams or even departments. They let clearly represent a sequence of the process steps, the order of operations, relationships between processes and responsible functional units (such as departments or positions).

## SYSML

The SysML solution helps to present diagrams using Systems Modeling Language; a perfect tool for system engineering.

## Bubble Diagrams

Bubble diagrams have enjoyed great success in software engineering, architecture, economics, medicine, landscape design, scientific and educational process, for ideas organization during brainstorming, for making business illustrations, presentations, planning, design, and strategy development. They are popular because of their simplicity and their powerful visual communication attributes.

## Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD)

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution extends ConceptDraw PRO software with templates, samples and libraries of vector stencils from drawing the ER-diagrams by Chen's and crow’s foot notations.

## Entity Relationship Diagram - ERD - Software for Design Crows Foot ER Diagrams

Crow's Foot notation was proposed by Gordon Everest. According to this notation, the entity is represented by rectangle, relation is depicted by line which ties two entities involved in a relationship. Entity-relationship diagrams based on both Chen's and Crow's Foot notations, can be easily drawn using the ConceptDraw PRO ERD diagrams software tools for design element Crow's Foot and Chen from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution.
