UML Activity Diagram

How To draw UML Activity Diagrams

UML Activity Diagram illustrates the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components in a system and shows the overall flow of control.

Activity diagrams are constructed from a limited number of shapes, connected with arrows. The most important shape types:

  • rounded rectangles - represent activities;
  • diamonds - represent decisions;
  • bars - represent the start (split) or end (join) of concurrent activities;
  • a black circle - represents the start (initial state) of the workflow;
  • 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.

ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that will help you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams.

You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Activity library with 37 objects.

The example "Design elements - UML activity diagrams" is included in the Rapid UML solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

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

Tree Network Topology Diagram →

When designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies. This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.Tree Network Topology Diagram *
