I'm designing a new workflow system in my company. Currently it's a module developed in an old framework that draws a entity relationships diagram, such as this:
Thing is, we need to look into another way of displaying this information in another way, as there are too many many-to-many relationships, consequently drawing too many arrows to actually have a clear understanding of what's going on.
I'm looking into other possibilities, but I can't seem to find a good alternative. The key needs are:
- Many-to-many relationships
- Relationships may advance from the first column to the second, connect a first-column entity to another first-column entity, come back from third to second columns...
- Clear visualisation of the relationships (arrows)
Any thoughts of where I should look into? Thanks!
