As an example of what can be created with help of ConceptDraw PRO application, we want to mention the ER- diagram, which is well known and commonly used Entity-Relationship Diagram. The components for drawing such ER diagram are all there in our stencil libraries of the “Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution”, and being an experienced user of ConceptDraw PRO, will take you only about 10 or 15 minutes to create any ERD using the provided samples. Once you are not as experienced with the mentioned software, then it may take a little bit longer for the first time, but still our pre-made samples and templates will be very useful for you, simplifying your work of creating the needed diagrams. Thus, the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution for ConceptDraw PRO allows you to create your own Entity-Relationship Diagrams of any complexity quickly, simply and effectively.

The mentioned Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution can be found and downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE application, extending the ConceptDraw PRO vector graphics and diagramming software with the ability of drawing your own entity-relationship diagrams using both Chen's or/and Crow's Foot notations, offering two stencil libraries with numerous pre-designed ER-icons, which are “ERD, Chen's Notation” and “ERD, Crow's Foot Notation” libraries.

Data flow diagram is also a very well-known as well as commonly used representation of data, with help of which you can represent any data flow in a system. Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) are a great part of the Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology, being consisted of so many different components, such as processes and functions, representing the actions happened in information system. There are the external entities mentioned within this drawing, which represent the data ingoing to and outgoing from in the system. The illustrated data depositories on the mentioned diagram represent places in the system, where data can be saved for a definite period of time and the represented data flows indicate the directions as well as a character of data, flowing within the considered information system.

The main data flow diagram elements are: processes, data flow, external entities and data store. So called “Yourdon — de Marco notation” is the one, being widely used for representation of the Data Flow Diagram objects. The design objects, which can be used for creating the Data Flow Diagrams, can be interpreted in a way of processes transforming the input data flows into the output data flows. Such design objects all can be found in the Data Flow Diagrams Solution to be very useful for those who intend to make great looking, professionally as well as smart looking data flow diagrams while working in ConceptDraw PRO data flow diagramming software.
