Business Process Workflow Diagram

Business Process Workflow Diagram is a professional visual tool that is widely applied for business development, business analysis, business process optimization and documenting business processes. Business Process Workflow Diagram lets depict in details the steps of business processes and flow of tasks between them, the execution of business processes, transfer of data and documents.
The workflows on the Business Process Workflow Diagram are represented using the set of common symbols which let easy illustrate business processes and process flows, depict the start, all major steps and end of the process, what data are used by the process, how the data flow through the business areas within scope of our project, how the tasks are executed and by who, and how workers interact with each other.

"Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems or ASAM is an incorporated association under German law. Its members are primarily international car manufacturers, suppliers and engineering service providers from the automotive industry. The association coordinates the development of technical standards, which are developed by working groups composed of experts from its member companies. ASAM pursues the vision that the tools of a development process chain can be freely interconnected and allow a seamless exchange of data. The standards define protocols, data models, file formats and application programming interfaces (APIs) for the use in the development and testing of automotive electronic control units." [Association for Standardisation of Automation and Measuring Systems. Wikipedia]
The workflow diagram example "Life cycle of an ASAM standard" was created using ConceptDraw PRO software extended with the Business Process Workflow Diagrams solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

SSADM Diagram

The vector stencils library SSADM from the solution Systems engineering contains specific symbols of SSADM diagrams for ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software. The Systems engineering solution is contained in Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The example below illustrates the waterfall model used in SSADM. This model involves 5 stages of developing a product such as requirements specification and its' analysis, design, coding and testing.

Circle Spoke Diagram Template

ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software offers the Circle Spoke Diagram Template included in the Circle-Spoke Diagrams Solution from the "Diagrams" Area. Use of ready template is the easiest way of drawing professional looking Circle-Spoke Diagrams.

IDEF0 standard with ConceptDraw PRO

The activity of any organization is more or less branchy network of processes. The description of these processes is a hard technical task which requires definite methodology and standards.
According to the IDEF0 standard any process can be described in the form of a block (Activity Box) which has inputs and outputs. The process consists in transformation of inputs into outputs under the influence of the management and in the presence of necessary resources. Outputs of the given process later on can be either inputs for the next process or resources, or management means.

"Task management is the process of managing tasks through its life cycle. It involves planning, testing, tracking and reporting. Task management can help either individuals achieve goals, or groups of individuals collaborate and share knowledge for the accomplishment of collective goals. Tasks are also differentiated by complexity, from low to high.
Effective task management requires managing all aspects of a task, including its status, priority, time, human and financial resources assignments, recurrency, notifications and so on. These can be lumped together broadly into the basic activities of task management. ...
Task management may form part of project management and process management and can serve as the foundation for efficient workflow in an organisation. Project managers adhering to task-oriented management have a detailed and up-to-date project schedule, and are usually good at directing team members and moving the project forward. ...

The status of tasks can be described by the following states:

Mechanical Design Software

Mechanical design is a labour-intensive process. To facilitate the task of Mechanical Engineering Diagrams creating, ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with Mechanical Engineering solution from the Engineering area. Now, ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful Mechanical Design Software.
The vector stencils library "Scrum workflow" contains 39 icons.
Use this clipart set to design your agile software development diagrams and flowcharts with ConceptDraw PRO software.
"A sprint (or iteration) is the basic unit of development in scrum. The sprint is a timeboxed effort; that is, it is restricted to a specific duration. The duration is fixed in advance for each sprint and is normally between one week and one month, with two weeks being the most common.
Each sprint starts with a sprint planning event that aims to define a sprint backlog, identify the work for the sprint, and make an estimated commitment for the sprint goal. Each sprint ends with a sprint review and sprint retrospective, that reviews progress to show to stakeholders and identify lessons and improvements for the next sprints.
Scrum emphasizes working product at the end of the sprint that is really done. In the case of software, this likely includes that the software has been integrated, fully tested, end-user documented, and is potentially shippable." [Scrum (software development). Wikipedia]
The clip art sample "Design elements - Scrum workflow" is included in the Scrum solution from the Project Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Waterfall Bar Chart

Waterfall chart shows the changing of the value from one state to another through the series of intermediate changes. The waterfall diagrams are widely used in the business. They are used to represent the set of figures and allow link the individual values to the whole.

Data Flow Diagram Software

When studying a business process or system that involves the transfer of data, it is common to use a data flow diagram (DFD) to visualize how that data is processed. While initially used exclusively in regards to the flow of data through a computer system, DFDs are now employed as a business modelling tool, describing business events and interactions, or physical systems involving data storage and transfer.
ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful Data Flow Diagram Software thanks to the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
You can use the predesigned DFD vector objects that are grouped in 3 libraries of Data Flow Diagrams solution: Data Flow Diagrams Library; Gane-Sarson Notation Library; Yourdon and Coad Notation Library.
