How to Create a Venn Diagram in ConceptDraw PRO

Venn diagrams were invented by John Venn as a method of depicting relationships between different components. A Venn diagram consists of two or more circles. Each circle represents a specific group or set. The entities which are depicted by circles generally have some common characteristics. A Venn Diagram shows all the possible logical relations between these entities. Any properties that belong to more than one set should be indicated in the sections where the circles overlap. A Venn Diagram can be useful to visually summarize the status and future viability of a project. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to make a Venn diagrams using the Venn Diagrams solution. Read more

How to Create a Telecommunication Network Diagram in ConceptDraw PRO

Telecommunication network diagram displays components and connections in a telecommunication network: how they are interacted between each other and with end-users. Telecommunication network diagrams usually created by system engineers for planning telecom networks. Also they may be useful for a network management. Telecom network diagram visualizes the level of security and user access to certain eqipment and data within a current network. Telecom network diagram can be used to identify weak points of an entire network or a part of it. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw a simple and clear Telecommunication Network diagrams. Read more

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Flowcharts are the best for visually representation the business processes and the flow of a custom-order process through various departments within an organization. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts solution offers the full set of predesigned basic flowchart symbols which are gathered at two libraries: Flowchart and Flowcharts Rapid Draw. Among them are: process, terminator, decision, data, document, display, manual loop, and many other specific symbols. The meaning for each symbol offered by ConceptDraw gives the presentation about their proposed use in professional Flowcharts for business and technical processes, software algorithms, well-developed structures of web sites, Workflow diagrams, Process flow diagram and correlation in developing on-line instructional projects or business process system. Use of ready flow chart symbols in diagrams is incredibly useful - you need simply drag desired from the libraries to your document and arrange them in required order. There are a few serious alternatives to Visio for Mac, one of them is ConceptDraw PRO. It is one of the main contender with the most similar features and capabilities. Read more

This example of a Top Level Context Diagram for an information system management process was redesigned from the Wikipedia file: IDEF Top-Level Context Diagram.jpg. [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IDEF_Top-Level_Context_Diagram.jpg]
"Graphical notation.
IDEF0 is a model that consists of a hierarchical series of diagrams, text, and glossary cross referenced to each other. The two primary modeling components are:
(1) functions (represented on a diagram by boxes), and
(2) data and objects that interrelate those functions (represented by arrows).
... the position at which the arrow attaches to a box conveys the specific role of the interface. The controls enter the top of the box. The inputs, the data or objects acted upon by the operation, enter the box from the left. The outputs of the operation leave the right-hand side of the box. Mechanism arrows that provide supporting means for performing the function join (point up to) the bottom of the box.
The IDEF0 process.
The IDEF0 process starts with the identification of the prime function to be decomposed. This function is identified on a “Top Level Context Diagram,” that defines the scope of the particular IDEF0 analysis. ... From this diagram lower-level diagrams are generated." [IDEF0. Wikipedia]
The IDEF0 diagram example "Top-level context diagram" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the IDEF0 Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

How to Create a Bubble Diagram Using ConceptDraw PRO

Bubble Diagram is a simple chart that consists of circles (bubbles) repesening certain topics or processes. Bubbles are connected by lines depicting the type of relationships between the bubbles. The size of each bubble is depended on the importance of the entity it represents. Bubble charts are widely used throughout social, economical, medical, and other scientific researches as well as throughout architecture and business management. Bubble charts are often used during the early stages of product development to visualize thoughts and ideas for the purpose of sketching out a development plan. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw a bubble diagrams using the Bubble Diagrams solution. Read more
