UML Deployment Diagram. Design Elements
UML Deployment Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the physical deployment of information generated by the software programs.
The information generated by the software is called “artifact”. The hardware with installed software is called “node”. Thus, UML Deployment Diagram models the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes.
UML Deployment Diagram is intended for visualization of elements and components of the program that exist only on the stage of its runtime. The development of the Deployment Diagram is the last stage of the specification of the software system model.
UML Deployment Diagram represents the nodes as boxes, and the artifacts as rectangles within the boxes. The nodes can have subnodes that are represented as nested boxes. One node on the UML Deployment Diagram can conceptually describe more than one physical node.
There are two types of nodes: device nodes and execution environment nodes.
Device nodes are the computing resources with capability of processing memory and executing of software. An execution environment node (EEN) is a computer system that is located inside a device node.
The other shapes the most used in UML Deployment Diagrams are:
- Communication path - a line that connect two device nodes and represents communications between them.
- Package - a file shaped box that groups together all the device nodes.
- Data Store, Frames, Components UML, and others.
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 Deployment Diagram use the UML Deployment Diagram library.
UML Deployment Diagram library contains 31 shapes:
- Device node
- Component 2
- Deployment specification
- Data store
- Communication path
- Communication line
- Association Many-to-Many
- Association One-to-Many
- Frame, fragment
- Interface with connector
- Processor node
- Execution environment node
- Smart connector
- Line connector
- Provided interface
- Provided interface (reverse)
- Required interface
- Required interface (reverse)

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM - workflow software extended with the Workflow Diagram solution provides a complete set of samples, templates and features help you to draw diagrams faster. A workflow software you use for drawing workflow diagrams and business process flow diagrams should provide a wide set of examples allows you get closer with workflow diagrams, learn symbols meaning, find appropriate layout and design, and then start drawing your own workflow diagram masterfully. Workflow diagrams used for orchestrating organizational processes between company departments and humans, so critical process diagrams used to train many people to interact must be clear and professional to convey an idea from a view. Thats a reason we created a lot workflow symbols and workflow icons collected them into special Workflow Diagram solution in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
