This onion diagram example was designed on the base of figure "Research onion" in the article "The research methodology for the development of a kaizen costing framework suitable for indigenous construction firms in Lagos, Nigeria." by T. Omotayo and U. Kulatunga from the Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM) website.
"The need for a cost management paradigm shift in the construction industry is imperative because of the prevailing challenges of managing construction cost during construction. Small and medium scale construction firms in Nigeria are faced with the challenges of competition from foreign firm, cost overrun, project delays and unsatisfied clients. This challenge may be handled with kaizen principles and kaizen costing. This paper utilized literatures related to research methodology in the built environment to create a research framework for the study. This focused on the research philosophical stands, approaches and strategy related to the built environment. The research onion model was adopted for the framework development and the sample size of two hundred and fifty (250) respondents was selected based on theoretical sampling for quantitative data collection using questionnaires."

Pie Chart Examples and Templates

A pie chart or a circle graph is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating numerical proportion. In a pie chart, the arc length of each sector and consequently its central angle and area, is proportional to the quantity it represents. Pie chart examples and templates created using ConceptDraw PRO software helps you get closer with pie charts and find pie chart examples suite your needs.

ERD Symbols and Meanings

Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is a popular software engineering tool for database modeling and illustration the logical structure of databases, which uses one of two notations - Chen's or Crow’s Foot. Crow's foot notation is effective when used in software engineering, information engineering, structured systems analysis and design. Each of these notations applies its own set of ERD symbols. Crow's foot diagrams use boxes to represent entities and lines between these boxes to show relationships. Varied shapes at the ends of lines depict the cardinality of a given relationship. Chen's ERD notation is more detailed way to represent entities and relationships. ConceptDraw PRO application enhanced with all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution allows design professional ER diagrams with Chen's or Crow’s Foot notation on your choice. It contains the full set of ready-to-use standardized ERD symbols and meanings helpful for quickly drawing, collection of predesigned ERD samples, examples and templates. ConceptDraw Pro is a great alternative to Visio for Mac users as it offers more features and can easily handle the most demanding professional needs.

This onion diagram example was designed on the base of figure "Academic advising stakeholder framework" in the article "Defining Advising Stakeholder Groups" by Julianne Messia from the website of NACADA Executive Office,
Kansas State University.
"A complete stakeholder analysis, therefore, not only names the stakeholders but accurately characterizes each stakeholder’s power and influence.
Harney (2008) identified advising stakeholders as being either internal or external constituents. Stakeholders belong in one of three distinct classifications: (1) internal core stakeholders, (2) internal but indirect stakeholders, and (3) external and indirect stakeholders. The chart below (Figure 1) depicts these groups in a diagram representing their various levels of input, influence, and involvement; the closer a group is to the “core” the more investment and weight that group has in advising. The groups utilized in this specific example assume a shared model of advising (both faculty and advising professionals have advising responsibilities). As each institution has its own unique culture and advising model, the chart should be adapted for any program or institution. For instance, an institution with a centralized advising model may list faculty as Internal but Indirect Stakeholders as they do not provide or administer advising directly."

This involvement matrix example shows distribution of roles and responsibilities in the Standardised Emergency Preparedness Plan (SEPP) program.
"The Standardised Emergency Preparedness Plan (SEPP) is a concept of three part, seven stage emergency plans, originally conceived in 1998. The objective of the SEPP-concept is to be able to use a common structure for emergency plans for authorities and private organisations, disregarding the local or national or even international legislative or regulatory context and the type of emergency situation the plan is conceived for. Whilst the initial concept has been a personal research driven initiative, the SEPP-methodology is now used as the standard structure by CEMAC. SEPP-plans are in use in Belgium and in various other European countries." [Standardised Emergency Preparedness Plan. Wikipedia]
"CEMAC - acronym for Crisis & Emergency Management Centre - is a Belgian Centre of Expertise active nationally and internationally in the field of crisis management." []
The involvement matrix example "SEPP program roles and responsibilities" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the solution "Seven Management and Planning Tools" from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Flowchart design. Flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons

A flowchart is a type of diagram which represents an algorithm, process or workflow, displays the steps as boxes of various kinds and depicts their order by connecting them with arrows. Any business graphic document will be more colorful and understandable if will use professional-looking and visual diagrams and flowcharts. Flowchart design gives versatile presenting and explaining of the process. ConceptDraw PRO flowchart software enhanced with Flowcharts solution helps effectively make Flowchart Design. Use of predesigned flowchart symbols and bright color palette offers a fresh view and favorably distinguishes the flowcharts designed in ConceptDraw PRO from the black and white flowcharts on a paper. Preferably to use no more than three or four colors and apply identical for the same shape types. The best flowchart design can be achieved by starting with Flowchart template, or any of suitable ready examples or samples offered in ConceptDraw STORE, open one of them and enter the proper text into each Flowchart shape. Each symbol of the flowchart has a definition that can't be changed. This means that all flowcharts shapes can be grouped in according to their meaning. Users with ConceptDraw PRO flowchart software can style groups of symbols with close definitions by color sets chosen from complementary palette. Almost all workflows can be depicted as a flowchart. Colored diagrams are more light for perception of the certain information, this is part of flowchart design. Bright colors need to be used in the key points of Decision symbols, to focus attention on their importance for whole process flow.
