Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a visual modeling language in the field of software engineering. It is an open standard that provides the graphic notations for creating the visual models of object-oriented software systems. UML took in the notations of the Object-modeling technique, Object-oriented software engineering and the Booch method.

The Cause and Effect diagram introduced by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1968 is a method for analyzing process dispersion. It can help you to dive into a problem and find an effective solution, identify and represent the possible causes for an effect, analyze the complex business problems and successfully solve them.
You can design your Cause and Effect diagram on a paper, but more effective way is to use specific software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Cause and Effect Diagram Software. It helps you create Cause and Effect diagram known also as Fishbone diagram or Ishikawa diagram from templates and examples.

If you need to describe some process, diagramming is a perfect tool for almost any imaginable purpose. The set of the most commonly used flow charts symbols is quite wide and includes symbols for operations, processes, data inputs and outputs. You can see the full list of all the symbols used for flowcharting in Flowcharts solution from Diagrams area in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
A flow chart is often used for visual representation of a sequential process flow. The flowchart approach to any process is to divide it into some sequential actions. What makes a flow chart so popular and clear to make out is the set of standard flowchart symbols that has the same reading independently from processes described with their applying. The current drawing represents the vector library containing the pack of standard flowchart symbols. This library is supplied with ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution.

This template shows the Venn Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the ready-to-use objects from the Business Diagrams Solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Venn Diagrams visualize all possible logical intersections between several sets and are widely used in mathematics, logic, statistics, marketing, sociology, etc.

Influence diagram (ID) is a graphical and mathematical representation of the decision. Influence diagrams are widely used in the decision analysis and in the game theory. They are the alternative to the decision tree. The influence diagram gives to analyst the high-level conceptual view that it can use to build the detailed quantitative model.
This sample shows the Influence diagram. It is a directed acyclic graph with three types of nodes: Decision node is drawn as a rectangle, Uncertainty node is drawn as an oval, Value node is drawn as an octagon. The nodes are connected with arcs.

What illustrates a technical flow chart? Technical flow chart is a diagrammatic representation which visually illustrates the sequence of operations that must to be performed to get the problem's solution.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM enhanced with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution is a perfect software for drawing Technical Flow Chart Example illustrating the essence and importance of the technical flow chart use.
