name. There are a lot of large and small companies using this program out there in the industry. Moreover, individuals, managers, instructors and numerous students are satisfied with this marvelous program. This document contains a brief introduction to Visio 2002. We, the GSAs of the ECE1551 Course hope, that all the students will find this tool useful now and in the future as well. 1.1 History In 1990, several developers from Aldus Corp. decided to form their own software company. They founded Shareware Corp based in Seattle, WA, and began to develop and produce various programs. In 1992, they released Visio 1.0. First customer response to the program was overwhelming. As with all popular programs, customers found many uses for the software. And as with all popular programs, suggestions and request for additional features were made. Shareware Corp listened, and developed even more useful and versatile versions of the program. So great was the success of the Visio program that in 1995, Shareware Corp. changed its name to Visio Corp. Continuing development of the program went from version 1.0 to version 5.0 in the 1990s. In 1999 Microsoft Inc. acquired Visio Corp. through a merger. From circuit board design to office networking diagrams to parts assembly instructions, technical drawings have been a vital part of business art for a very long time. From the first assembly instruction set that came with that special toy you bought as a child, you have been exposed to technical drawings. Technical drawings are one of the most important uses of business art in the area of production, no matter whether the product being produced is a Local Area Network or a model plane.

2 Laboratory Exercises In this Chapter, students first follow a step-by-step process of creating drawings in Visio. They also should directly execute the instructions in BLUE and BOLD in order to understand the procedure of the development better. Exercise 1 includes basic steps and functions for the example logic of a 2/1 Selector (Multiplexer or MUX).
