Entity Relationship Diagram Software Engineering

Entity Relationship Diagram (aka ERD, ER Diagram, E-R Diagram) is a well-tried software engineering tool for data modeling, system design and illustrating the logical structure of databases.
Professional ERD drawing is an essential software engineering method for database modeling. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as a powerful Entity Relationship Diagram Software Engineering offers the tools of Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Entity Relationship Diagram Examples

Creating an entity-relationship (ER) model is to visually represent the structure of a business database, where data equates to entities (or objects) that are linked by defined relationships expressing dependencies and requirements. By nature it is an abstract visualization, the first step in the design process towards creating a logical and functional database.
ConceptDraw gives the ability to describe a database using the Entity-Relationship model. Entity-Relationship Diagram solution includes icons advocated by Chen's and Crow’s Foot notation that can be used when describing a database.

Diagramming Software for Design UML Timing Diagrams

UML Timing Diagram as special form of a sequence diagram are used to explore the behaviors of objects throughout a given period of time.

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

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 Diagrams

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software enables you to quickly create data flow diagrams that include data storage, external entities, functional transforms, data flows, and control transforms and signals.

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 DIAGRAM ERD diagrams software tools for design element Crow's Foot and Chen from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution.

Diagramming Software for Design UML Activity Diagrams

Activity diagram describes the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components in a system. An activity diagram shows the overall flow of control.

Data Flow Diagrams

Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) are graphical representations of the "flow" of data through an information system. Data flow diagrams can be used for the visualization of data processing. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Data Flow Diagrams Solution is a powerful data flow diagramming application that allows you quickly create any Data Flow Diagrams including the data storages, external entities, functional transforms, data flows, as well as control transforms and signals.

Interaction Overview Diagram

UML Interaction Overview Diagram schematically shows a control flow with nodes and a sequence of activities that can contain interaction or sequence diagrams.
