entity-relationship diagram, ER-diagram, database 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.

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.

An Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) is a visual presentation of entities and relationships. That type of diagrams is often used in the semi-structured or unstructured data in databases and information systems. At first glance ERD is similar to a flowch

BPMN 2.0

ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software offers the Business Process Diagram Solution from the Business Processes Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park with powerful tools to help you easy represent the business processes and create the business process diagrams based on BPMN 2.0 standard.

How to Create an ERD Diagram

ERD (entity relationship diagram) is used to show the logical structure of databases. It represents the interrelationships between components of database (entities). Entity relationship diagrams are a widely used in software engineering. Using ERD software engineers can control the every aspect of database development. ER diagram can be used as guide for testing and communicating before the release of software product. ERD displays data as entities that are connected with connections that show the relationships between entities. There is some ERD notations used by data bases developers for representing the relationships between the data objects. ConceptDraw PRO and its ERD solution allow you to build ERD diagram of any notation.

Flow Diagram Software

ConceptDraw is a professional Process Flow Diagram software. The basic set of the stencils libraries, samples and templates allows you to draw any type of flowchart. Flowcharts give to users the ability to represent structural data visually. One can draw own flowchart in seconds by using RapidDraw technology.

Jacobson Use Cases Diagram

The vector stencils library UML Use Case contains specific symbols of the UML notation such as actors, actions, associations and relationships for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software. This library is contained in the Rapid UML solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Diagramming Software for Design UML Use Case Diagrams

Use Case Diagrams describes the functionality provided by a system in terms of actors, their goals represented as use cases, and any dependencies among those use cases.

UML Use Case Diagrams

ConceptDraw has several examples that help you to start using software for designing UML Use Case Diagrams.

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.

How To Make Chen ER Diagram

The Chen ERD notation model is a popular standard and is widely used worldwide in database and software design. The entity-relationship model proposed by Dr. Chen is constructed using a natural view of how the real world comprises entities and the relationships that exist with these identified entities. It was designed to leverage the advantages of the three entity-data models (network model, relationship model, entity model). The free Chen Notation solution for ConceptDraw PRO provides vector stencil libraries with full standardized Chen notation included.

How To Make a Crow's Foot ER Diagram

The Crow's Foot ERD notation is often used in software engineering and database design. The originator of Crow’s Foot notation was Gordon Everest, who offered the idea of how to visually represent the different types of relationships that can exist between objects in an entity relationship diagram (ERD). The Crow’s Foot notation is often used in ER models to how a particular table data can reference data in other tables within a database. The free Crow's Foot Notation solution for ConceptDraw PRO offers a complete vector stencil library containing full standardized symbols of Crow's Foot notation.
