Design elements - UML activity diagrams

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."

UML State Machine Diagram.Design Elements

UML state machine's goal is to overcome the main limitations of traditional finite-state machines while retaining their main benefits. 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 State Machine library. Read more
The vector stencils library "UML state machine diagrams" contains 35 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"The state diagram in the Unified Modeling Language is essentially a Harel statechart with standardized notation, which can describe many systems, from computer programs to business processes. In UML 2 the name has been changed to State Machine Diagram. The following are the basic notational elements that can be used to make up a diagram:
(1) Filled circle, pointing to the initial state.
(2) Hollow circle containing a smaller filled circle, indicating the final state (if any).
(3) Rounded rectangle, denoting a state. Top of the rectangle contains a name of the state. Can contain a horizontal line in the middle, below which the activities that are done in that state are indicated.
(4) Arrow, denoting transition. The name of the event (if any) causing this transition labels the arrow body. A guard expression may be added before a "/" and enclosed in square-brackets ( eventName[guardExpression] ), denoting that this expression must be true for the transition to take place. If an action is performed during this transition, it is added to the label following a "/" ( eventName[guardExpression]/action ).
(5) Thick horizontal line with either x>1 lines entering and 1 line leaving or 1 line entering and x>1 lines leaving. These denote join/fork, respectively." [State diagram (UML). Wikipedia]
