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

ConceptDraw Rapid UML solution provides UML Deployment Diagram library of vector stencils for drawing the deployment diagrams using deployment blocks and assembly connectors.
Use design element from the UML Deployment Diagram library to draw your own UML deployment diagrams of complex systems and software applications.
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Deployment Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Working with personnel might be difficult if you are not prepared enough. To explain your workers all the details of communication with customers, you can draw an order process flowchart which will describe every step of the process and answer all the questions that might appear. You can view a lot of business process mapping diagram examples here, in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This business process flow chart is created to illustrate the sample work order process. Before an organization can make some work for a person, the customer work order request must be completed. It is needed for tracking and accountability objectives. We used this business process flowchart to show a certain tasks and actions assumed by an organization. This flowchart depicts the outside inputs that are needed to launch a process, and ways the organization delivers its outputs. This business process flowchart was created with a help of ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution.

Aside from decorating inner spaces, which is a realm of interior design, the art of exterior design is about home facades, playgrounds and yards. To start a project, first of all, you need a site plan of the place, and a list of customers’ requirements. With special software you can do a plan of any place like parking, interchange or driveway easily.
There is one of the three libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Site Plans solution. It is designed to draw planning areas adjacent to buildings. For example parking, exit road or house territory for rest. This kind of building plans can be used for providing parking control that helps to organize traffic near residential areas. The well considered road planning will improve safety and will help to manage the number of vehicles near buildings. The ConceptDraw library "Parking and Roads" includes vector graphic images of parking spaces, lots and strips as well as street junctions, driveways and interchanges.

This sample shows the Purchasing Flow Chart Diagram that displays the money flow in the carbon offset sphere. The carbon offsets are the compensatory measures that the companies make for the carbon emissions. You can see on this sample the groups that have interests in the carbon offsets and the money flow after the carbon offset vendors sold the carbon offsets.
