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.

Sometimes, when it is difficult to create a functional space plan or to rearrange existing one, the art of interior design comes in. It doesn't matter, if you need a cozy bedroom or an office layout plan, you should use appropriate tools to make your design great.
While making a floor plan of a new office it could be useful to apply some design elements such as furniture and office equipment. This diagram presents an office furniture objects that can be used for office interior design planning, or making office furniture and equipment layouts. This vector stencils library is supplied with ConceptDraw Office Layout Plans solution. It contains more then 30 vector objects of office interior for making office floor plans including an office space layout plans and furniture arrangement.

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a graphical modeling language for describing, visualizing, projecting and documenting of object oriented systems. UML digram is used for modeling of organizations and their business processes, for development the big projects, the complex software applications. Comprehensive UML diagram allows to create the set of interrelated documents that gives the complete visual representation of the modeling system.

This method of problem analysis is widely used in IT, manufacture industries and chemical engineering. If you want to take a fresh look on your problem, you can draw a fishbone diagram with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, which supports both MAC OS and Windows. You can see and download fishbone diagram samples and templates in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram can be applied as template for performing the cause and effect analysis of a service industry problems. It can help to determine factors causing problems. Causes in this diagram are categorized according to the 4S’s principle that means Surroundings, Suppliers, Systems and Skills. Grouping causes allows to reveal main interactions between different events. This diagram was made using ConceptDraw Fishbone diagrams solution. It can help to reveal the causes effected a complicated issue. Of course it can be used together with other methods of approaching to the problem solving.
