UML Activity Diagram

UML Activity Diagram is a type of UML diagrams, which illustrates the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components within a system and shows the overall flow of control. UML Activity Diagram is constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected each other with arrows. The most important shape types are rounded rectangles, diamonds, bars, black circle, encircled black circle. The arrows represent the order in which activities happen and run from the start towards the end. ConceptDraw PRO software enhanced with Rapid UML solution is ideal for software designers and software developers who need to draw the UML Activity Diagrams and other types of UML diagrams. It is convenient to use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from the UML Activity library included to the Rapid UML solution of ConceptDraw Solution Park and containing a lot of specific vector UML objects. Use them to design your own UML Activity Diagrams, make them colorful and attractive with style tools of ConceptDraw PRO software. Read more

"A registered user is one who uses a program or a website and provides his/her credentials, effectively proving his/her identity. ...
Generally speaking, any person can become a registered user by providing some credentials, usually in the form of a username (or email) and password. After that, one can access information and privileges unavailable to non-registered users, usually referred to simply as guests. The action of providing the proper credentials for a website is called logging in, or signing in." [Registered user. Wikipedia]

"Web container (also known as a Servlet container) is the component of a web server that interacts with Java servlets. A web container is responsible for managing the lifecycle of servlets, mapping a URL to a particular servlet and ensuring that the URL requester has the correct access rights. A web container implements the web component contract of the Java EE architecture, specifying a runtime environment for web components that includes security, concurrency, lifecycle management, transaction, deployment, and other services. A web container provides the same services as a JSP container as well as a federated view of the Java EE platform APIs." [Web container. Wikipedia]

This example was drawn on the base of SysML activity diagram on the page 8 of "SysML Modelling Language explained" document from the Official OMG SysML site.
"The activity diagram represents steps of a process, often making use of “input and output pins” that respectively correspond to the element type required as the input of an activity or action, and the element generated as an output.
If an action or activity corresponds to a block operation, it is possible to ensure that the types of the input and output of this activity are consistent with the block operation signature.
All the activity diagrams definitions used in UML also apply to SysML.
SysML has added a couple of extensions:
- With UML, control can only enable actions to start. SysML extends control to support disabling of actions that are already executing.
- Definition of the flow rate : continuous or discrete
- Definition of the rate and probability on the control or object flows"

"An automated teller machine or automatic teller machine" (ATM) (American, Australian, Singaporean, Indian, and Hiberno-English), also known as an automated banking machine (ABM) (Canadian English), cash machine, cashpoint, cashline or hole in the wall (British, South African, and Sri Lankan English), is an electronic telecommunications device that enables the clients of a financial institution to perform financial transactions without the need for a cashier, human clerk or bank teller.
On most modern ATMs, the customer is identified by inserting a plastic ATM card with a magnetic stripe or a plastic smart card with a chip that contains a unique card number and some security information such as an expiration date or CVVC (CVV). Authentication is provided by the customer entering a personal identification number (PIN). The newest ATM at Royal Bank of Scotland allows customers to withdraw cash up to £100 without a card by inputting a six-digit code requested through their smartphones.
Using an ATM, customers can access their bank accounts in order to make cash withdrawals, get debit card cash advances, and check their account balances as well as purchase pre-paid mobile phone credit. If the currency being withdrawn from the ATM is different from that which the bank account is denominated in (e.g.: Withdrawing Japanese yen from a bank account containing US dollars), the money will be converted at an official wholesale exchange rate. Thus, ATMs often provide one of the best possible official exchange rates for foreign travellers, and are also widely used for this purpose." [Automated teller machine. Wikipedia]

"Credits and deposits.
To add credit to an account by bringing cash to a bank in person, the account holder can fill a small credit slip or deposit slip. The total amount of each note and coin is counted and entered on the slip, along with who it is paid in by and the date. The cash and details are counted and checked by the teller at the bank, if everything is in order the deposit is credited to the account, the credit slip is then kept by the bank and the credit slip booklet is stamped with the date and then returned to the account holder.An account holder uses their passbook to record their history of transactions with their bank."

"An issue tracking system (also ITS, trouble ticket system, support ticket, request management or incident ticket system) is a computer software package that manages and maintains lists of issues, as needed by an organization. Issue tracking systems are commonly used in an organization's customer support call center to create, update, and resolve reported customer issues, or even issues reported by that organization's other employees. An issue tracking system often also contains a knowledge base containing information on each customer, resolutions to common problems, and other such data. An issue tracking system is similar to a "bugtracker", and often, a software company will sell both, and some bugtrackers are capable of being used as an issue tracking system, and vice versa. Consistent use of an issue or bug tracking system is considered one of the "hallmarks of a good software team".
A ticket element, within an issue tracking system, is a running report on a particular problem, its status, and other relevant data. They are commonly created in a help desk or call center environment and almost always have a unique reference number, also known as a case, issue or call log number which is used to allow the user or help staff to quickly locate, add to or communicate the status of the user's issue or request.
These tickets are so called because of their origin as small cards within a traditional wall mounted work planning system when this kind of support started. Operators or staff receiving a call or query from a user would fill out a small card with the user's details and a brief summary of the request and place it into a position (usually the last) in a column of pending slots for an appropriate engineer, so determining the staff member who would deal with the query and the priority of the request."

"The C4ISR Architectural Framework (C4ISR AF) is now known as DoDAF, is a reference model developed by the US Department of Defense in the 1990s." [commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:C4ISR_Architecture_Framework]
"The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) is an architecture framework for the United States Department of Defense (DoD) that provides visualization infrastructure for specific stakeholders concerns through viewpoints organized by various views. These views are artifacts for visualizing, understanding, and assimilating the broad scope and complexities of an architecture description through tabular, structural, behavioral, ontological, pictorial, temporal, graphical, probabilistic, or alternative conceptual means.
This Architecture Framework is especially suited to large systems with complex integration and interoperability challenges, and it is apparently unique in its employment of "operational views". These views offer overview and details aimed to specific stakeholders within their domain and in interaction with other domains in which the system will operate."
