    Need a Conceptual schema(OBJECT ROLE MODELING) Program

    Hello EDU

    I have been tasked with finding a Program to make Conceptual schema like the one attached in the picture i cannot for the life of me find one
    I have check visio etc but am unable to get one that makes this type of template

    Anyone got any ideas or programs that they use besides simply drawing it with basic shapes etc

    I'm pretty sure visio has it all built in as that's what I used at Uni to do mine, but you can always download a stencil pack with what you're after.

    e.g.



    What is BPM, BPMS, EA, BPA? A Short Definition Introduction - All About Requirements

    Or as you said, could draw your own shapes and copy/paste them if you don't want visio etc

    You could try Dia and see if that does what you need - it's basically an open sourcer alternative to visio:

    Visio and Dia pretty much use industry standard symbols and shapes if your teacher doesn't want to prepare your pupils/students for the real world and wants to make up their own then they'll have to draw them themselves.

    If this is the route they insist on going down then Microsoft publisher is probably your answer. You could create a template that is read only that contains all the shapes they need. You can draw each shape out of individual lines and circles and then select them all and group them together so they then behave as one single shape you can easily move around.

    Hope that helps!

    You need to get your staff to look at UML, which you can do in Visio.

    This is the nearest thing out of the box and these skills would be useful outside of school

    Here is an example
