UML Use Case Diagram Example. Registration System
The use case diagram (behavior scenarios, precedents) is the initial conceptual representation of the system during its design and development. This diagram consists of actors, use cases and relationships between them. When constructing a diagram, common notation elements can also be used: notes and extension mechanisms.
The essence of this diagram is as follows: the designed system is represented as a set of actors interacting with the system using the so-called “use cases”. In this case, an actor (acting person, actant, artist) is any object, subject, or system that interacts with a simulated system from the outside. In turn, the “use case” is a specification of the services (functions) that the system provides to the actor. In other words, each “use case” defines a certain set of actions performed by the system when interacting with an actor. At the same time, the model does not reflect in any way how this set of actions will be implemented.
In the structural approach, the analogue of the use case diagram is IDEF0 and DFD diagrams, use-work options (IDEF0) and processes (DFD), and actors — external entities (DFD).
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Use Case Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the types of user’s interactions with the system and is used at the registration and working with the database system.

Data Flow Diagram is used to depict the flow of data through the system, where it enters and exits the system, as well as where it is stored. To simplify the process of drawing a data flow diagram (DFD), ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a DFD Library - design elements that will help you make your diagram as informative, streamlined and understandable as possible. Data flow diagrams are useful to create a general overview of the system or to document major data flows.
Here are the library of symbols used in data flow diagrams (DFD). Data Flow diagrams are graphic means of business process visualization. Any business process may involve the data transfer. It can be easily shown using data flow diagrams. DFDs are used to represent the processing and transformation of data within a business process. One can find out the Vector library of DFD symbols, that is a component of ConceptDraw solution for Data Flow Diagramming and is welcome to use in as addition to the common Conceptdraw DIAGRAM diagramming facilities.
