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 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]

"RT-middleware (Robotics Technology Middleware) is a common platform standards for Robots based on the distributed object technology. RT-middleware supports the construction of various networked robotic systems by the integration of various network enabled robotic elements called RT-Components. The specification standard of the RT-component is discussed / defined by the Object Management Group (OMG). ...
In the RT-middleware, robotics elements, such as actuators, are regarded as RT-components, and the whole robotic system is constructed by connecting those RT-components. This distributed architecture helps developers to re-use the robotic elements, and boosts the reliability of the robotic system.
Each RT-component has port as an endpoint for communicating other RT-components. Every port has its type and the ports which have the same type can be connected each other.
RT-components also has its state, so the RT-components behaves as state machines. The states that RT-components can have are CREATED, INACTIVE, ACTIVE, and ERROR, and the states and behaviors are controlled by the execution-context. If developers want to change the behavior of their RT-components, the execution-context can be replaced at run-time." [RT middleware. Wikipedia]

"State machine diagram is a behavior diagram which shows discrete behavior of a part of designed system through finite state transitions. State machine diagrams can also be used to express the usage protocol of part of a system. Two kinds of state machines defined in UML 2.4 are:
(1) behavioral state machine, and
(2) protocol state machine.
The following nodes and edges are typically drawn in state machine diagram: behavioral state, behavioral transition, protocol state, protocol transition, different pseudostates. ...
Behavioral state machine is specialization of behavior and is used to specify discrete behavior of a part of designed system through finite state transitions. The state machine formalism used in this case is an object-based variant of Harel statecharts.
Behavior is modeled as a traversal of a graph of state nodes connected with transitions. Transitions are triggered by the dispatching of series of events. During the traversal, the state machine could also execute some activities. ...
Protocol state machine is a specialization of behavioral state machine and is used to express usage protocol or lifecycle of a classifier. It specifies which operations of the classifier can be called in which state and under which condition, thus specifying the allowed call sequences on the classifier’s operations. Protocol state machines express the legal transitions that a classifier can trigger." [uml-diagrams.org/state-machine-diagrams.html]

"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 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
"In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm ... is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning.
An algorithm is an effective method expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and initial input (perhaps empty), the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states, eventually producing "output" and terminating at a final ending state. The transition from one state to the next is not necessarily deterministic; some algorithms, known as randomized algorithms, incorporate random input." [Algorithm. Wikipedia]

Types of Flowcharts

A Flowchart is a graphical representation of process, algorithm, workflow or step-by-step solution of the problem. It shows the steps as boxes of various kinds and connects them by arrows in a defined order depicting a flow. There are twelve main Flowchart types: Basic Flowchart, Business Process Modeling Diagram (BPMN), Cross Functional Flowchart, Data Flow Diagram (DFD), IDEF (Integrated DEFinition) Flowchart, Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) Diagram, Influence Diagram (ID), Swimlane Flowchart, Process Flow Diagram (PFD), Specification and Description Language (SDL) Diagram, Value Stream Mapping, Workflow Diagram. Using the Flowcharts solution from the What is a Diagram area of ConceptDraw Solution Park you can easy and quickly design a Flowchart of any of these types. This solution offers a lot of special predesigned vector symbols for each of these widely used notations. They will make the drawing process of Flowcharts much easier than ever. Pay also attention for the included collection of ready Flowchart examples, samples and quick-start templates. This is business process improvement tools.
