Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples
A local area network (LAN) is a devices network that connect with each other in the scope of a home, school, laboratory, or office. Usually, a LAN comprise computers and peripheral devices linked to a local domain server. All network appliances can use a shared printers or disk storage. A local area network serve for many hundreds of users. Typically, LAN includes many wires and cables that demand a previously designed network diagram. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the LANs physical structure and arrangement.
The Network Logical Structure Diagram is designed to show the logical organization of a network. Shows the basic network components, network structure, and determines the interaction of all network devices. The diagram displays basic devices and zones: Internet, DMZ, LAN, and group. Clarifies what network equipment is connected, describes the major nodes in the network, gives an understanding of the logical structure of the network as well as the type of interaction within the network.
Local Area Network Diagrams visualize the communication schemes of LAN, and the networks arrangement in houses, offices and buildings. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the LANs physical structure and arrangement.

Cross-Functional FlowchartThere are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart. This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.

Accounting Flowchart SymbolsIt doesn’t matter what kind of business you have, a bar or a gym, there are common concepts for any of them. One of those concepts is accounting, and to facilitate the work with the figures, you can use accounting flowchart symbols and create a clear and representative scheme. You can create flowchart for auditing, tax accounting and even for planning your own budget. A graphical tool for displaying successive processes is flowchart. This method is mostly suited to represent an accounting process. The sequence of steps in the accounting process usually consists of standard accounting procedures, that can be depicted by using a minimal number of symbols, applied for the basic flowcharting. The advanced opportunity to create professional Accounting Flow charts is provided by ConceptDraw Accounting Flowcharts solution. It includes contains a library of accounting flowchart symbols used when drawing the accounting process flow.
Symbol for Pool Table for Floor PlansBelow you can see the symbol for pool table. You can find this symbol in the library of the Floor Plans Solution and use it in your floor plan of the sport complex, home, etc. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software for creating the different Floor Plans. It’s very convenient, simple and quick to design the professional looking Floor Plans of any difficulty in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAMOf course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later. There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.
