“In software engineering, an entity–relationship model (ER model) is a data model for describing the data or information aspects of a business domain or its process requirements, in an abstract way that lends itself to ultimately being implemented in a database such as a relational database. The main components of ER models are entities (things) and the relationships that can exist among them, and databases.” [from Wikipedia]

The Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park extends ConceptDraw PRO vector graphics and diagramming software with the ability of drawing the Entity Relationship Diagrams for visually describing the databases with Crow’s Foot and Chen's notation icons.

Entity Relationship Diagrams in ConceptDraw PRO

Sample 1. Entity Relationship Diagrams in ConceptDraw PRO

Drawing the Entity Relationship Diagrams from the clear page can be quite long and hard. For this case, designers were prepared templates and samples with Entity Relationship Diagram examples. Saved and located in ConceptDraw Solution Browser, they are available for every ConceptDraw PRO user.

Sample 2. Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution in Solution Browser

No matter which way you choose - use the predesigned templates and samples, or design Entity Relationship Diagrams de novo, you will be useful to use the vector objects provided by libraries of Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution.

Sample 3. Entity Relationship Diagrams - ER Model Diagram

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the vector objects from the ERD Crow's Foot Notation library of Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution and illustrates the Entity Relationship Model Diagram. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.

All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio XML, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw Solution Browser v3. The Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution is available for all ConceptDraw PRO v9.5 or later users.

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.  Read more... →

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.  Read more... →
