UML Diagram Visio
As we progress into the 21st century, our reliance on computer and information systems to facilitate business is greater than ever before. The global market is much too convoluted and relentless to be run on manpower and note-taking alone; software systems are crucial to a company when handling large amounts of data processing, customer transactions, or client databases. As such, their development and maintenance has become a key component in successful company operations.
To structure, plan, and control the development of these systems, a software development life cycle (SDLC) is developed and adhered to. Different methodologies have evolved to be applied for different purposes, based on technical, organizational, project and team needs, but generally all will use some combination of the following stages:
- Problem analyzing
- Market research
- Requirements analysis
- Implementation (coding)
- Maintenance and bug fixing
How strictly this order is followed, and what level of planning and documentation is reached, will depend on the requirements of the business and capabilities of the software. A 'waterfall' approach to the SDLC would see each of these stages carried out in linear order, with detailed planning and risk assessment before coding is even begun. The 'extreme' approach involves a lot less planning and documentation, and focuses more on coding and continuous re-testing, ideal for a smaller system, or one where new components are being added as an ongoing process.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are primarily a macOS tool and you can use it to draw many UML diagram types.

You can use many tools to create a representation of a system behavior or a scheme of objects relationships. Some of them are quite abstract and useless, and some, like UML tools help clarifying both the structure and the behavior of a system. There are various types of uml diagrams and tons of examples explaining the difference between them.
UML 2.2 specification has many kinds of diagrams. They are divided into two groups( structure and behavior diagrams). This class diagram shows the hierarchical structure of UML 2.2 specification. Class diagram - the most suitable tool for this task because it is designed to describe basic structure of a system. This diagram can be use as a visual aid for learning UML.

While designing a conceptual data model, you should use appropriate software. For instance, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a user-friendly ER diagram tool that has a lot of samples and templates to facilitate your work. A clear entity-relationship diagram helps to define the relations between system’s components.
Software engineering is the section of a computer science engaged to design, realization, and support of complex software products. An ERD is a data modeling method that is widely applied in the software engineering practice. Commonly it is used for developing a structure of a a relational database. An entity relationship diagram is helpful for structuring and organizing databases that can be modeled using a relational structure. An entity relationship diagram is designed to depicts the interrelationships within the sets of entities which are accumulated in the database. Each entity represents a particular component of a data. Thus, ER diagrams depicts the logical structure of databases. ConceptDraw ER Diagrams solution provides software engineers with the professional tool for making entity-relationship diagrams.
