“An Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) is a type of flowchart used for business process modelling. EPCs can be used for configuring an enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation, and for business process improvement. Usage for control of work share with instances of autonomous workflows in workflow management is possible, but not yet implemented.

The event-driven process chain method was developed within the framework of Architecture of Integrated Information Systems (ARIS) by August-Wilhelm Scheer at the Institut für Wirtschaftsinformatik, Universität des Saarlandes (Institute for Business Information Systems at the University of Saarland) in the early 1990s.”[from Wikipedia]

How do you make usually the EPC diagrams? It is quite complex and lengthy process. But now thanks to the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Event-driven Process Chain Diagrams EPC solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park this process became simple and fast.

Example 1. EPC Diagram in ConceptDraw PRO

Event-driven Process Chain Diagrams EPC Solution offers a set of predesigned templates and samples. You can choose any desired EPC diagram sample from the offered in ConceptDraw Solution Browser that meets your requirements and change it for your needs.

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... →
