UML sequence diagram - Checking process

"A schedule or timetable is a basic time management tool consisting of a list of times at which possible tasks, events, or actions are intended to take place, or a sequence of events in the chronological order in which such things are intended to take place. The process of creating a schedule - deciding how to order these tasks and how to commit resources between the variety of possible tasks - is called scheduling, and a person responsible for making a particular schedule may be called a scheduler. Making and following schedules is a fundamental human activity, and learning to do these things effectively is one of the most basic life skills. There are a wide variety of situations in which schedules are necessary, or at least useful.
Schedules are useful for both short periods, such as a daily or weekly schedule, and for long term planning with respect to periods of several months or years. They are often made using a calendar, where the person making the schedule can note the dates and times at which various events are planned to occur. Schedules that do not set forth specific times for events to occur may instead list an expected order in which events either can or must take place." [Schedule. Wikipedia]

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. Business process mapping software with Flowchart Maker ConceptDraw PRO includes extensive drawing tools, rich examples and templates, process flowchart symbols and shape libraries, smart connectors that allow you create the flowcharts of complex processes, process flow diagrams, procedures and information exchange. Process Flowchart Solution is project management workflow tools which is part ConceptDraw Project marketing project management software. Drawing charts, diagrams, and network layouts has long been the monopoly of Microsoft Visio, making Mac users to struggle when needing such visio alternative like visio for mac, it requires only to view features, make a minor edit to, or print a diagram or chart. Thankfully to MS Visio alternative like ConceptDraw PRO software, this is cross-platform charting and business process management tool, now visio alternative for making sort of visio diagram is not a problem anymore however many people still name it business process visio tools.

This example of automated teller machine (ATM) UML sequence diagram was created on the base of figure 5 "Sequence diagram" on the webpage "Message Sequence Charts and their Ilk" from the website of the University of California Irvine (UCI) Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences.
"A UML sequence diagram or SD is similar to an MSC but written with a different notation. Presumably the same semantic issues arise, but possibly not since UML semantics are not well-defined. An example is shown in Figure 5.
The timelines are dotted rather than solid, and the name of the component is inside a box at the head of each timeline. The narrow rectangles apparently show when a component is active (unsure precisely what "active" means). An X on a timeline indicates that the component ceases to exist in some sense (unsure precisely how this is meant also). In the example, the Bank timeline has an X simply as an example (presumably the Bank does continue to exist)."

"A sequence diagram is an interaction diagram that shows how processes operate with one another and in what order. It is a construct of a Message Sequence Chart. A sequence diagram shows object interactions arranged in time sequence. It depicts the objects and classes involved in the scenario and the sequence of messages exchanged between the objects needed to carry out the functionality of the scenario. Sequence diagrams are typically associated with use case realizations in the Logical View of the system under development. Sequence diagrams are sometimes called event diagrams, event scenarios."

This vector stencils library contains 32 SysML symbols.
Use it to design your sequence diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A sequence diagram shows, as parallel vertical lines (lifelines), different processes or objects that live simultaneously, and, as horizontal arrows, the messages exchanged between them, in the order in which they occur. This allows the specification of simple runtime scenarios in a graphical manner. ...
If the lifeline is that of an object, it demonstrates a role. Leaving the instance name blank can represent anonymous and unnamed instances.
Messages, written with horizontal arrows with the message name written above them, display interaction. Solid arrow heads represent synchronous calls, open arrow heads represent asynchronous messages, and dashed lines represent reply messages. If a caller sends a synchronous message, it must wait until the message is done, such as invoking a subroutine. If a caller sends an asynchronous message, it can continue processing and doesn’t have to wait for a response. Asynchronous calls are present in multithreaded applications and in message-oriented middleware. Activation boxes, or method-call boxes, are opaque rectangles drawn on top of lifelines to represent that processes are being performed in response to the message (ExecutionSpecifications in UML).
Objects calling methods on themselves use messages and add new activation boxes on top of any others to indicate a further level of processing.
When an object is destroyed (removed from memory), an X is drawn on top of the lifeline, and the dashed line ceases to be drawn below it (this is not the case in the first example though). It should be the result of a message, either from the object itself, or another.
A message sent from outside the diagram can be represented by a message originating from a filled-in circle (found message in UML) or from a border of the sequence diagram (gate in UML)." [Sequence diagram. Wikipedia]

Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) Diagram Software

An EPC diagram is a type of flowchart used in business process analysis. It shows different business processes through various work flows. The workflows are shown as processes and events that are related to different executes and tasks that allow business workflow to be completed. An EPC diagram shows different business processes through various workflows. The workflows are seen as functions and events that are connected by different teams or people, as well as tasks that allow business processes to be executed. The best thing about this type of enterprise modelling is that creating an EPC diagram is quick and simple as long as you have the proper tool. One of the main usages of the EPC diagrams is in the modelling, analyzing and re-engineering of business processes. With the use of the flowchart, businesses are able to see inefficiencies in the processes and modify to make them more productive. Event-driven process chain diagrams are also used to configure an enterprise resource pla Read more
