Object-Oriented Design

Being involved in the process of planning some system of interacting the objects, or in other words, being engaged in the object-oriented design in order to solve some software problem as one of the approaches used in the software design, you may find the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software a really useful tool for making the needed drawings, such as the IDEF Business Process Diagrams.

Having the IDEF Business Process Diagrams solution from the relatively new product of CS Odessa would be also a benefit as it allows all the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users to create the IDEF Business Process Diagrams within only a few minutes using the pre-made stencil libraries as well as the examples.

Object-Oriented Design *

Example 1. Object-Oriented Design - Final Object Schematic

There are altogether four libraries that are included in the previously mentioned solution: the “Design Elements — IDEF0” one, the “Design Elements — IDEF3 Object Schematic Symbols” one, the “Design elements — IDEF3 Process Schematic Symbols” and the “Design Elements — IDEF3 Referents and Notes”. Choosing any needed of them depends on the tasks you need to complete as each of them has its own unique design elements.

Example 2. IDEF Business Process Diagrams Solution in ConceptDraw STORE

Thus, in the “Design Elements — IDEF0” stencil library there are such design elements as a Box where a “Function name” can be mentioned, the Arrows named “Straight the segment”, “Straight the arrow segment”, “Curved arrow segment; corners are rounded with 90 degree arcs”, “Forking arrows”, “Joining arrows”, “Tunneled arrows; Use the Action button to reverse tunnel” and “Dotted line”.

There are also Control arrow, Input arrow, a Mechanism arrow, a Call arrow and an Output arrow available for any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user to have as long as both the ConceptDraw STORE application is downloaded and the IDEF Business Process Diagrams solution from it.

Software design is known to be the process by which any agent can create some particular specification of a software artifact. The mentioned specification may be known to be intending to accomplish some particular goals by using a set of some simple components as well as the subject to constraints.

Any software design may refer to either the activity of following the requirements’ specification in a stylized software engineering process or all the possible activity that is known to be involved in conceptualizing, implementing, framing, commissioning and modifying complex systems.

Software design is also usually known to be involving the process of problem-solving as well as the process of planning some software solution, including both a low-level component and algorithm design as well as another, an architecture design known to be “high-level” one.

To help the IDEF Business Process Diagrams get complete on time, the IDEF Business Process Diagrams solution can be used anytime by any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user as long and they have the ConceptDraw STORE application downloaded from this site as well.

Any object is known to be containing some encapsulated data as well as the procedures that are all grouped together in order to represent some entity. The so-called “object interface” is the one defining how exactly the object can be interacted with.

Any object-oriented program can be described by the interaction of such objects and the object-oriented design is what the discipline of defining the objects as well as their interactions called. The mentioned objects interactions if what is used for solving the problems that were both identified and documented during the object-oriented analysis.

A description of the class-based subset of object-oriented design follows next, not including the object prototype-based approaches. Such approaches are known for being the ones where the objects are typically obtained by cloning other (prototype) objects, such as their prototypes, but not instantiating the classes.

Any object-oriented design is what a method of the design known that can encompass the process of the object-oriented decomposition as well as a notation. It is being done for depicting both physical and logical, dynamic and state models of some system under design.

Any input used within the object-oriented design is known to be provided by the output of object-oriented analysis. Realizing that any output artifact never needs to be completely developed in order to serve as input of object-oriented design, both design and analysis may occur in parallel.

In practice, though, the results of one activity can feed the other one through an iterative process in a short feedback cycle. Both design and analysis can be performed incrementally. Also, all the artifacts can be continuously grown instead of completely developed in one shot.

The examples of the input artifacts used within the object-oriented design can be a conceptual model and user interface documentation, as well as the so-called relational data model.

There are also known to be five basic concepts of the object-oriented design that are simply the implementation level features built into the programming language, having such names as Object/Class, Information hiding, Inheritance, Interface, etc.

IDEF3 Object State Transition Schematic

Example 3. IDEF3 Object State Transition Schematic

The design principles as well as the strategies are: the dependency injection that is known to be the basic idea affirming that in case some object depends upon having an instance of some other object then the needed object is known to be "injected" into the dependent object, and an acyclic dependencies principle that can be referred to the dependency graph of some components as well as the packages where there are no cycles at all.

The last one also is known to be referred to as having a directed acyclic graph and it can also be created with the help of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software as well as the other needed drawings.


Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples →

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams. This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.Local area network (LAN) diagram

Types of Flowcharts →

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart. This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor. The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.Types of Flowcharts *

ERD Symbols and Meanings →

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling. An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.ERD Symbols and Meanings
