SysML activity diagram

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"

Process Flowchart

The main reason of using Process Flowchart or PFD is to show relations between major parts of the system. Process Flowcharts are used in process engineering and chemical industry where there is a requirement of depicting relationships between major components only and not include minor parts. Process Flowcharts for single unit or multiple units differ in their structure and implementation. ConceptDraw PRO is Professional business process mapping software for making Process flowcharts, Process flow diagram, Workflow diagram, flowcharts and technical illustrations for business documents and also comprehensive visio for mac application. Easier define and document basic work and data flows, financial, production and quality management processes to increase efficiency of your business with ConcepDraw PRO.

"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]

UML Diagram

The accepted open standard that is used in software engineering and system design, when modeling object-oriented systems and business processes is known as Unified Modeling Language (UML). UML was created for definition, visualization, design and documentation software systems. It isn't a programming language, but on the base of UML model can be generated code. UML uses generic set of graphic notations for creation an abstract model of the system called UML-model. The UML notation lets visually represent requirements, subsystems, structural and behavioral patterns, logical and physical elements, etc. UML defines 13 types of diagrams: Class (Package), Use Case, Sequence, Object, Collaboration, Component, Timing, Interaction Overview, State Machine, Composite Structure, Activity, and Deployment. All these types of UML Diagrams can be fast and easy created with powerful ConceptDraw PRO software extended with special Rapid UML solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

The vector stencils library "UML activity diagrams" contains 37 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Activity diagrams are constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected with arrows. The most important shape types:
(1) rounded rectangles represent actions;
(2) diamonds represent decisions;
(3) bars represent the start (split) or end (join) of concurrent activities;
(4) a black circle represents the start (initial state) of the workflow;
(5) an encircled black circle represents the end (final state).
Arrows run from the start towards the end and represent the order in which activities happen.
Hence they can be regarded as a form of flowchart. Typical flowchart techniques lack constructs for expressing concurrency. However, the join and split symbols in activity diagrams only resolve this for simple cases; the meaning of the model is not clear when they are arbitrarily combined with decisions or loops."

"A swim lane (or swimlane) is a visual element used in process flow diagrams, or flowcharts, that visually distinguishes responsibilities for sub-processes of a business process. Swim lanes may be arranged either horizontally or vertically. In the accompanying example, the swimlanes are named Customer, Sales, Contracts, Legal, and Fulfillment, and are arranged vertically. ...
When used to diagram a business process that involves more than one department, swimlanes often serve to clarify not only the steps and who is responsible for each one, but also how delays, mistakes or cheating are most likely to occur.
Many process modeling methodologies utilize the concept of swimlanes, as a mechanism to organize activities into separate visual categories in order to illustrate different functional capabilities or responsibilities (organisational roles). Swimlanes are used in Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and Unified Modeling Language activity diagram modeling methodologies." [Swim lane. Wikipedia]

"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]
