Workflow Definition
Workflow is an essential element of business process management (BPM).
Workflow is a term used to describe how work is defined and how work is allocated and scheduled.
Workflow defines the sequence and conditions based upon which work flows.
Workflow handles the routing of work between resources. The resources can be people, systems or machines.
Workflow manages the order in which these steps are handled.
Workflow enables employees to monitor and, reconfigure the flow of a business process as needed.
Workflow Diagram Templates
Workflow diagrams present the logical flow of information through a system in graphical or pictorial form. Workflow diagrams have only four symbols, which makes useful for communication between analysts and users. Workflow diagrams show the relationships used and provided by processes within a system.

Cross-Functional Flowchart
Cross-Functional Flowchart Definition
Cross-Functional Flowchart
When a flowchart describes a process in which a number of different people, departments, or functional areas are involved, it is sometimes difficult to keep track of who is responsible for each step. A useful additional technique for tracking this, and for analyzing the number of times a process is 'handed over' to different people, is to divide the flowchart into columns. Head up each column with the name of the person or function involved in the process, and each time they carry out an action show it in their column. This is illustrated in the flowchart below which covers a simple purchasing process. It shows how control of the process passes from the person initiating the purchase, to the Purchasing Dept. and then to the Supplier.
Use cross-functional flowcharts to show the relationship between a business process and the functional units (such as departments) responsible for that process.
Bands represent the functional units. Shapes representing steps in the process are placed in bands that correspond to the functional units responsible for those steps.
The Cross-Functional Flowchart template is available in two locations. On the File menu, point to New, point to Business Process or Flowchart, and then click Cross-Functional Flowchart.
Cross Functional Flowchart Software
Cross Functional Flowchart Software
The essential purpose of this template is to help you diagram the relationship between a business process and the responsible party. Edraw supports both horizontal and vertical cross-functional flowcharts.
Click here to free download Cross Functional Flowchart Software. Then you can use the build-in template to create and present your swimlane flowcharts in minutes.
Should My Flow Chart Be Vertical or Horizontal
You can present any cross-functional process either vertically or horizontally. A vertical layout places slightly more emphasis on the functional units while a horizontal layout emphasizes the process. The orientation option you choose often depends on personal taste, rather than a strict requirement or guideline. You can also choose the number of bands that appears in the diagram when you create it. The best practice is to create enough bands to hold each step of the process you want to document.
Flowchart type
Cross-Functional Flowchart Horizontal
Cross-Functional Flowchart Horizontal
In a horizontal layout, bands representing functional units run horizontally across the drawing page, highlighting the process.
Cross-Functional Flowchart Vertical
Cross-Functional Flowchart Vertical
In a vertical layout, bands representing the functional units run vertically from the top to the bottom of the page, highlighting the functional units.
What is the difference between Deployment flowcharts & cross-functional flowcharts
As far as I have seen, there is no significant difference between both. Actually, deployment flowcharts and cross-functional flow-charts seem to be two synonyms for the same concept, otherwise referenced in one paper as a "Process Map". Diagrammatically, Deployment chart diagrams seem to me more like UML Activity diagrams with Swim lanes (if you're familiar with UML you'll immediately understand what I mean). In other words, deployment diagrams are flowcharts that focus on showing "who does which activity". I've came across a definition that says "A Deployment Flowchart shows the actual process flow and identifies the people or groups involved at each step.
This type of chart shows where the people or groups fit into the process sequence, and how they relate to one another throughout the process." I also came across a paper that identifies both as being the same: "The process map-otherwise known as a cross-functional flowchart or deployment chart-is an excellent tool for clearly displaying process flows across organizational boundaries and identifying delays, repetitive steps, excessive control points, specialized tasks, and potential points of process failure." So, I believe it is plausible to assert that cross-functional charts and deployment charts both refer to the same concept.
Cross functional: display the workflow and the functional positions who are involved with each step in the workflow

Database Diagram Software
Database diagram is a visual tool that allows designers and developers to create and visualize a database. When creating a database, you can use Edraw Max to create, edit, or delete tables, columns, keys, indexes, relationships, and constraints. To diagramming a database, you can create one or more database diagramsillustrating some or all of the tables, columns, keys, and relationships in the database. Edraw Max can quickly and easily create a diagram for a database schema.

How It Works
edraw max
Starting the Edraw Program
The Edraw interface has a similar look and feel to that of Microsoft Office 2010 programs. This makes it easy to locate features and easier for you to use Edraw with Microsoft Office programs, such as Microsoft Word PowerPoint. After you have installed Edraw, simply open it as you would any other Windows program. The following illustration shows the default Edraw window.

If you don't get the above screen, please click File menu in the Top-Left corner.
File menu
To familiarize yourself with the many Edraw templates available, click a Template Category and hover your mouse over the Template pictures. Edraw will display a short description of the selected template in the lower-left corner of the window. To begin working with a template, simply position your pointer over the corresponding graphic and double click.
Choosing a Template
The first step in creating any diagram is to choose your template. The template is your starting point - it provides you with the drawing tools (e.g., shapes, arrows, titles, and backgrounds) that you can use to create your diagram.
  1. To use one of built-in templates, under Template Categories, click the category that you want.
  2. Then click the template that you want and click Create.
Start from a Built-in Example
Edraw allows you to create new diagrams from the built-in examples. Every basic drawing type includes some classic examples. You can use the symbols or style free and start your work.
edraw drawing types
Office Style Like Drawing Environment
After you open a template, you'll see the drawing environment, which includes menu category, template with shapes, drawing page, and a help pane on the right of the drawing page (F1).
Office Style Like Drawing Environment
You can create your drawing on the drawing page, which represents the printed page and includes a grid to help position shapes. Edraw menus are similar to those in Microsoft Office 2010 System programs, so you'll find familiar ways to open, print, and save your diagrams.
Creating a Flowchart
Firstly you can drag the shapes (process, decision, data shapes) and text to the shapes. Then you add the connecting lines between the shapes. Next you may want to add free form text to the diagram, such as a title or comments.
Adding Shapes
Add shapes to your diagram by dragging (hold down the left mouse button and move your mouse) shapes from templates in the Libraries window onto the drawing page. Don't worry too much about lining the shapes up. Edraw helps you line up the shapes by "snapping" them to the Drawing Page grid. Please note that the grid shown on the drawing page does not print out when you print the diagram.
Deleting Shapes
Deleting shapes is easy. Just click the shape and then press the DELETE key.
Move and Resize Shapes
Move a shape
  1. Click the Pointer tool  , and then point to a shape. (The pointer changes to a four-headed arrow .) When the shape is selected, its selection handles  appear.
  2. Drag the shape to where you want it.
    If snapping (snap: The ability of shapes, guides, grid lines, and other elements in the Edraw program to pull shapes and other elements into position when they are moved and sized.) is on, the shape may jump into place.
    Note Be careful not to point to a selection handle when you move a shape. If you accidentally resize a shape, immediately click Undo on the Edit menu.
Move multiple shapes
  1. Select the shapes that you want to move.Note To select multiple shapes, click the Pointer tool , and then drag a selection net (selection net: A means of selecting more than one shape at a time by dragging the Selection tool to define an area that encloses all the shapes to be selected.) around all the shapes that you want to select.
  2. Place the pointer over one of the shapes. (The pointer changes to a four-headed arrow  .)If one of the objects you're moving is a group, the pointer won't show the four-headed arrow unless it is over one of the shapes in the group.
  3. Drag the shapes to their new positions. All selected shapes move the same distance and direction from their original positions.
Resize one shape
  1. Select a shape.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If the shape has selection handles  , drag a selection handle until the shape is the size you want. To resize the shape proportionally, drag a corner handle.
    • If the shape has endpoints  , drag an endpoint to the length you want.
    Note Handles that are gray boxes indicate the shape is locked and cannot be resized, if you want to size it, you can modify the protection of the shape via right click menu Protection.
    Resize one shape
Adding Text to Shapes
You can add text to shapes. Just click a shape and begin typing; Microsoft Office Visio zooms in so you can see the text as you type.
  1. Click the shape on the drawing page, and then type the desired text.
  2. Alternatively, you could click the Text tool A, click the shape, and then type.
  3. Click a blank area of the drawing page or press the ESC key to exit the text mode.
Adding Independent Text to the Diagram
You can also add text that's not associated with any shape, such as a title or list, to the drawing page. This type of text is called independent text or a text block. Use the Text tool to just click and type.
  1. Click the Text tool A.
  2. Click the page where you want the text to appear on the diagram.
  3. hen type the desired text.
Connecting the Shapes with the Connector Tool
In Edraw, you create connections by attaching, or gluing, one-dimensional shapes called connectors to two-dimensional shapes. Connectors stay glued when you move the shapes. For example, when you move a flowchart shape connected to another shape, the connector repositions to keep its endpoint glued to both shapes.
You use the Connector tool to create connections. Note People new to Edraw often use the Line tool to connect shapes. Using the Connector tool is a much better method. When you use the Connector tool, connectors reroute, or bend, automatically when you move one of the connected shapes. When you use the Line tool to connect shapes, the connectors don't reroute.
  1. Click the Connector tool .
  2. Draw connection line as follow:
    To keep the connector glued to a specific point on a shape, drag from a connection point  on the first shape to a connection point on the second shape. The connector endpoints turn red when the shapes are connected.
    Connect Shape Draw Connection line connect end
Adding Text to Connectors
You can use text with connectors to describe relationships between shapes. Add text to connectors the same way you add text to any shape-just click a connector and type. A good example would be for Decision symbols. One arrow will have Yes or True and the other arrow will have No or False.
Apply or customize a document theme
You can quickly and easily format an entire document to give it a professional and modern look by applying a document theme (theme: A set of unified design elements that provides a look for your document by using color, fonts, and graphics.). A document theme is a set of formatting choices that include a set of theme colors, a set of theme fonts (including heading and body text fonts), and a set of theme effects (including lines and fill effects).
Apply or customize a document themeEdraw provide several predefined document themes, but you can also create your own by customizing an existing document theme, and then by saving it as a custom document theme.
Saving the Diagram
After you finish a diagram, you can save it the same way you save a file created in any Microsoft Office System program.
Note It's a good idea to periodically save your diagram as you work.
  1. On the File menu, click Save As.
  2. In the File name box, type Flowchart, and then click Save.
Previewing and Printing the Diagram
Before you print a diagram, you can preview it to ensure it will print correctly. In the Print Preview window, the gray boundary indicates the drawing page margins and edge of the printed page. Shapes that overlap this boundary won't print completely. Either move them or adjust your drawing page or printer settings, such as orientation, size, or margins. (To adjust page or printer settings, on the File menu, click Page Setup.)
Adding a New Page
To add a new page to your project, so the following steps:
  1. Select Insert from the menu.
  2. Select the New Page option.
