Yourdon and Coad Symbols

This Edraw template, based on the Yourdon and Coad method, includes components for creating data-flow diagrams and also object state diagrams. Some unique attributes of their DFD notation include:

  • A data store is represented as two parallel, horizontal lines.
  • Processes are represented by a circle, and adorned with a double circle for multiple processes (indicating that further decomposition exists at a lower level). Note: the oval process should be reserved for object or class diagrams.
