"The IDEF0 Functional Modeling method is designed to model the decisions, actions, and activities of an organization or system. ...
IDEF0 includes both a definition of a graphical modeling language (syntax and semantics) and a description of a comprehensive methodology for developing models. ...
IDEF0 is used to show data flow, system control, and the functional flow of lifecycle processes. IDEF0 is capable of graphically representing a wide variety of business, manufacturing and other types of enterprise operations to any level of detail. It provides rigorous and precise description, and promotes consistency of usage and interpretation." [IDEF0. Wikipedia]
The IDEF0 diagram example "Application development" 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

"Functional decomposition refers broadly to the process of resolving a functional relationship into its constituent parts in such a way that the original function can be reconstructed (i.e., recomposed) from those parts by function composition. In general, this process of decomposition is undertaken either for the purpose of gaining insight into the identity of the constituent components (which may reflect individual physical processes of interest, for example), or for the purpose of obtaining a compressed representation of the global function, a task which is feasible only when the constituent processes possess a certain level of modularity (i.e., independence or non-interaction). Interactions between the components are critical to the function of the collection. All interactions may not be observable, but possibly deduced through repetitive perception, synthesis, validation and verification of composite behavior." [Functional decomposition. Wikipedia]

How to Create an IDEF0 Diagram Using ConceptDraw PRO

IDEF0 is a modeling tool used to model the decisions, actions, and activities of an organization or system. IDEF0 is capable of graphically representing a wide variety of business, manufacturing and other types of enterprise operations to any level of detail. An IDEF0 diagram describes an idealized model of a system or process. ConceptDraw has created a solution that collects all symbols necessary to create professional IDEF0 diagrams, as well as templates and step-by-step lessons that help create your own process diagram from the ground up. The IDEF Business Process Diagrams solution for ConceptDraw PRO contains extensive libraries of vector stencils that allow users to create professional looking diagrams of any complexity. The power of ConceptDraw PRO means that recording a business process is a quick and painless task - smart connectors allow you to map your diagram on the screen almost as quickly as it comes to mind.
