UML Block Diagram
UML Building Blocks
The UML building blocks determine as things, relationships and diagrams.
There are four types of things in UML: Structural, Behavioral, Grouping and Annotational.
Sructural things (the static part of the model):
Class represents a set of objects that have the same structure, behavior, and relationships with objects of other classes. Classes are represented as boxes that consist of name, attributes, operations, and responsibilities.
Interface is an abstract class that defines a set of operations that the object of the class associated with this interface provides to other objects.
Collaboration determines interactions between the elements.
Use case is a description of the system behavior on the request from the outside of this system.
Component describes the physical part of the system.
Node is a resource available during the run time.
Behavioral things (dynamic part of the model):
Interaction is a set of messages that the elements exchange for execution the tasks.
State machine defines the states of the object that go in response to the events.
Grouping things (the mechanism for grouping the UML model elements):
Package groups the classes and other packages.
Annotational things (the mechanism for capturing the remarks, descriptions, and comments of the UML model elements):
Note is a textual explication.
Association is a relationship that connect two classes.
Dependency is a relationship when some changes of one element of the model can need the change of another dependent element.
Generalization is an association between the more general classifier and the more special classifier.
Realization is a relationship between interfaces and classes or components that realize them.
There are the following types of UML Diagrams: Class, Component, Composite Structure, Deployment, Object, Package, Activity, State Machine, Use Case, Communication (Collaboration), Interaction Overview, Sequence, and Timing.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the Flowchart of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis. This Flowchart describes the decline in housing prices when the housing bubble burst and what it caused on the housing and financial markets. You can also see the Government and Industry responses in this crisis situation.

The first thing that usually comes to mind when talking about database models is ER-diagrams, and the ways to create them. The second most recognizable notation is the Crow’s Foot, which visually differs from Chen’s notation. Actually, it doesn’t matter which notation you’ll use for your entity relationship diagram (ERD), but the content is what matters.
When designing an Entity-Relationship Diagram one need to use a certain notated symbols that were developed and standardized especially for databases description. First of them - the Chen’s notation had a linguistic origin. It includes rectangle boxes to show entities that may be described as nouns, and the relationships between them described as verbs depicted in a form of diamond. Finally the Chen’s notation was simplified up to the Crow’s Foot notation. It represents a relationship as labeled line. It is precisely this notation is shown in the given figure. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM together with its Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution is designed to support professionals who deals with creating ER diagrams using the element of both - Chen’s and Crow's Foot notations.

What Is a Circle Spoke Diagram? It is a diagram which has a central item surrounded by other items in a circle. The Circle Spoke Diagrams are often used to show the features or components of the central item in marketing and management documents and presentations. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Business Diagrams Solution from the Management Area is the best software for creating Circle-Spoke Diagrams.
