Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagram (DFD) is the part of the SSADM method (Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology), intended for analysis and information systems projection. Data flow diagrams are intended for graphical representation of data flows in the information system and for analysis of data processing during the structural projection. Data flow diagram often used in connection with human process and can be displayed as workflow diagram. The critical Process Flow Diagram is another flowchart technique for designing data flow in connection with organizational processes. The critical Process flow diagram may use different range of symbols than a classic workflow diagram.

Process Flowchart

ConceptDraw is Professional business process mapping software for making process flow diagram, workflow diagram, general flowcharts and technical illustrations for business documents. It is includes rich examples, templates, process flowchart symbols. ConceptDraw flowchart maker allows you to easier create a process flowchart. Use a variety of drawing tools, smart connectors, flowchart symbols and shape libraries to create flowcharts of complex processes, process flow diagrams, procedures and information exchange.

How to Create a Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagramming is a highly effective technique for showing the flow of information through a system. Data flow diagrams reveal relationships among and between the various components in a program or system. DFD is an important technique for modeling a system’s high-level detail by showing how input data is transformed to output results through a sequence of functional transformations. The set of standard symbols is used to depict how these components interact in a system. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw a simple and clear Data Flow Diagram using special libraries.

Software Work Flow Process in Project Management with Diagram

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the Workflow Diagrams Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This sample shows the Workflow Diagram that clearly illustrates stages a BPM consists of and relations between all parts of business. The Workflow Diagrams are used to represent the transferring of data during the work process, to study and analysis the working processes, and to optimize a workflow.

Types of Flowcharts

A Flowchart is a graphically representation of the process, algorithm or the step-by-step solution of the problem. There are ten types of Flowcharts. Using the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park you can easy and quickly design the Flowchart of any of these types.
