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.

What is a computer network? This is a set of devices and systems that are connected to each other (logically or physically) and communicate with each other. This could include servers, computers, phones, routers, and so on. The size of this network can reach the size of the Internet, and can consist of only two devices connected by a cable.
This sample shows the connection scheme of the home WLAN equipment to the Internet.

Every engineering project starts from a terms of reference document. The next stage of developing is a technical drawing, which requires using appropriate software. However, revisions and discussions about requirements are possible at any stage of development.
This technical drawing demonstrates a schematic flow diagram of pulp reclaiming. This diagram of magnetite pulp reclaiming is created using ConceptDraw Chemical and Process engineering solution, The solution delivers more than 460 vector graphic icons and connectors. Generally, it is intended for designing process and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) for chemical and process engineering. block flow diagrams (BFD), process flow diagrams (PFD) for chemical industry.

UML Object Diagram shows the structure of a modeled system at a specific time.
ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Object library.

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language of graphic description for object modeling in the field of software engineering. UML was created for definition, visualization, designing of software systems. UML is an open standard that uses graphic notations for creating visual models of object-oriented software systems.
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM presentsthe intuitive RapidDraw interface that helps you to make the UML Diagram of any of these 13 types quick and easy.
