Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Flowchart Symbols and Meaning - Provides a visual representation of basic flowchart symbols and their proposed use in professional workflow diagram, standard process flow diagram and communicating the structure of a well-developed web site, as well as their correlation in developing on-line instructional projects. See flowchart's symbols by specifics of process flow diagram symbols and workflow diagram symbols.

Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols

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.
ERD symbols used for professional ERD drawing are collected in libraries from the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for ConceptDraw PRO.
The vector stencils library "Solid geometry" contains 15 shapes of solid geometric figures.
"In mathematics, solid geometry was the traditional name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space - for practical purposes the kind of space we live in. It was developed following the development of plane geometry. Stereometry deals with the measurements of volumes of various solid figures including cylinder, circular cone, truncated cone, sphere, and prisms.
The Pythagoreans had dealt with the regular solids, but the pyramid, prism, cone and cylinder were not studied until the Platonists. Eudoxus established their measurement, proving the pyramid and cone to have one-third the volume of a prism and cylinder on the same base and of the same height, and was probably the discoverer of a proof that the volume of a sphere is proportional to the cube of its radius." [Solid geometry. Wikipedia]
The shapes example "Design elements - Solid geometry" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Mathematics solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

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.

How to Draw Geometric Shapes in ConceptDraw PRO

Knowledge of geometry grants people good logic, abstract and spatial thinking skills. The object of study of geometry are the size, shape and position, the 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. Geometry is related to many other areas in math, and is used daily by engineers, architects, designers and many other professionals. Today, the objects of geometry are not only shapes and solids. It deals with properties and relationships and looks much more about analysis and reasoning. Geometry drawings can be helpful when you study the geometry, or need to illustrate the some investigation related to geometry. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw plane and solid geometry shapes quickly and easily.

Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) with ConceptDraw PRO

PERT Diagram is a more realistic approach of a project's time estimate analysis. After PERT chart was constructed user can discover the shortest possible duration for entire project timescale. The project timeline is the longest chain that might be taken with connected tasks on the PERT Diagram. Completion of serial tasks need to be accomplished in a presented order. At a project timeline can be independent tasks that not linked with main sequence they are called parallel tasks. PERT diagram is more suitable for Critical Path Analysis than Gantt chart for the reason that it undoubtedly better determine task dependencies. Project managers customarily utilize both methodologies.
