UML Diagram Visio
As we progress into the 21st century, our reliance on computer and information systems to facilitate business is greater than ever before. The global market is much too convoluted and relentless to be run on manpower and note-taking alone; software systems are crucial to a company when handling large amounts of data processing, customer transactions, or client databases. As such, their development and maintenance has become a key component in successful company operations.
To structure, plan, and control the development of these systems, a software development life cycle (SDLC) is developed and adhered to. Different methodologies have evolved to be applied for different purposes, based on technical, organizational, project and team needs, but generally all will use some combination of the following stages:
- Problem analyzing
- Market research
- Requirements analysis
- Implementation (coding)
- Maintenance and bug fixing
How strictly this order is followed, and what level of planning and documentation is reached, will depend on the requirements of the business and capabilities of the software. A 'waterfall' approach to the SDLC would see each of these stages carried out in linear order, with detailed planning and risk assessment before coding is even begun. The 'extreme' approach involves a lot less planning and documentation, and focuses more on coding and continuous re-testing, ideal for a smaller system, or one where new components are being added as an ongoing process.
ConceptDraw PRO are primarily a macOS tool and you can use it to draw many UML diagram types.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Class Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The document of ConceptDraw PRO with UML Class Diagram is a vector graphic document and can be reviewed, modified or convert to a MS Visio format.
This sample shows the UML Class Diagram that was created in ConceptDraw PRO on the Mac and then was opened for editing in MS Visio.
This sample describes the trade relations and can be used in business, in commercial relations.

Network Diagram Software LAN Network Diagrams & Diagrams for LAN Physical Office Network DiagramsLocal area network connects computers and other network appliances within an area, such as office building or a campus. It can be difficult to provide such network without a predesigned plan. For these purposes you can use network diagram software, which helps you to create LAN network diagrams and office network diagrams quickly and effortless. This will speed up your work and you can save the diagram for the future network improvements. The following diagram illustrates a network topology of the small office. LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.
Cisco Buildings. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbolsCisco icons are globally recognized and generally accepted as standard for network icon topologies. The ConceptDraw vector stencils library "Cisco buildings" contains 21 symbols for drawing the computer network diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
Flow chart Example. Warehouse FlowchartIf you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.
IDEF0 VisioConceptDraw PRO extended with IDEF0 Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing IDEF0 software. All IDEF0 diagrams created in ConceptDraw PRO are vector graphic documents and can be reviewed, modified and converted to MS Visio XML format. To obtain the IDEF0 Visio documents from ConceptDraw PRO documents use the wide export possibilities of ConceptDraw PRO.
UML Deployment Diagram. Design ElementsUML Deployment diagram describes the hardware used in system implementations and the execution environments and artifacts deployed on the hardware. ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Deployment library.
UML Class Diagram ConstructorUML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the: classes of a system, attributes, operations, and the relationships between them. The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw PRO includes the UML Class Diagram library that helps you to design the UML Class Diagram quick and easy. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from the library into your document to create the UML Class Diagram.

ConceptDraw PRO UML Diagrams with ConceptDraw PROConceptDraw PRO is a great UML modeling and design tool that enables you to quickly and easily generate all types of UML diagrams. ConceptDraw PRO offers a large collection of industry-standard UML object libraries for all types of UML diagrams.
UML Deployment DiagramUML Deployment Diagram depicts the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes (nodes are the existing hardware components, artifacts are the software components running on each node); and how the different pieces are connected. Use ConceptDraw PRO with UML deployment diagram templates, samples and stencil library from Rapid UML solution to model the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes of your software system.
UML Activity DiagramUML Activity Diagram illustrates the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components in a system and shows the overall flow of control. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Activity library with 37 objects. ConceptDraw is ideal for software designers and software developers who need to draw UML Activity Diagrams. Use ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Rapid UML solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park to create your own UML activity diagrams that show the business and operational workflows of components and overall flow of control in your systems. Such software provides coloring UML diagrams for various purposes and simplifying work of the engineers.
