UML Composite Structure Diagram. Design Elements
UML Composite Structure Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the internal structure of a class and the interactions of elements of the internal structure of the class.
The Composite Structure Diagrams appeared in UML 2.0 to supplement the existing artifacts such as classes.
A Composite Structure Diagram consists of the set of elements that are connected and collaborate at the runtime. Each element executes the defined role in this collaboration.
UML Composite Structure Diagram includes internal parts; ports through these parts interact between each other and with the outside world; connectors between parts or ports; collaborations and structured classifier.
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM contains 13 vector stencils libraries with 393 interactive shapes that you can use to design your UML diagrams.
To design a Composite Structure Diagram use the UML Composite Structure Diagram library.
All libraries for creating UML diagrams are available inside the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Templates and samples are located in the Rapid UML section of ConceptDraw STORE.

A model of a system is defined as a set of hierarchical diagrams representing the asynchronous process of data transformation from the moment it is input to the system to the moment it is output to the user. To demonstrate how a process transforms the initial data, you should design a data flow diagram using a DFD Library included in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park. Start your diagramming experience now!
You can use this library of symbols related to data flow diagrams (DFD) to design data-oriented or process-oriented models along with data process diagrams. This vector objects library It is a part of ConceptDraw solution designed for data flow diagramming, along with corresponding samples and templates. A data flow diagram is a 2D flowchart that depicts the sequence of particular activities and operations operations and activities which is accompanied by the dynamic flow of some data.
