UML Diagramming Software

The UML Diagrams are widely used by software developers and software engineers. They can draw the UML Diagrams manually on the paper, but it is incredibly convenient to use the special UML diagramming software. The UML diagramming software allows you to draw the UML Diagrams in a few minutes.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software that helps to design the detailed professional looking UML diagrams quick and easy.


Unified Modeling Language (UML)

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language of graphic description for object modeling in the field of software engineering. UML was created for definition, visualization, designing of software systems. UML is an open standard that uses graphic notations for creating visual models of object-oriented software systems.

Two types of diagrams are used in UML: Structure Diagrams and Behavior Diagrams. Behavior Diagrams represent the processes proceeding in a modeled environment. Structure Diagrams represent the elements that compose the system.

There are seven types of Structure Diagrams that must be present in any modeled system:

  • Class Diagram
  • In software engineering, a UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the system's classes, their attributes, operations (or methods), and the relationships among the classes.

    UML Class Diagram

  • Component Diagram
  • UML Component Diagram illustrate how components are wired together to larger components and software systems that shows the structure of arbitrarily complex systems.

    UML Component Diagram

  • Composite Structure
  • UML Composite Structure Diagram shows the internal structure of a class and the possible interactions at this structure. It includes internal parts, ports, and connectors between parts or ports. Each element has some defined roles in the collaboration.

    UML Composite Structure

  • Deployment Diagram
  • UML Deployment Diagram depicts the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes: nodes is the existing hardware components and artifacts is the software components running on each node; and how the different pieces are connected.

    UML Deployment Diagram

  • Object Diagram
  • UML Object Diagram shows the structure of a modeled system at a specific time. UML Object Diagram focuses on some particular set of object instances and attributes, and the links between the instances. A correlated set of object diagrams provides insight into how an arbitrary view of a system is expected to evolve over time.

    UML Object Diagram

  • Package Diagram
  • UML Package Diagram illustrates the functionality of a software system. ConceptDraw helps you to start designing your own UML Package Diagrams with examples and templates. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation for drawing your own UML Package Diagram.

    UML Package Diagram

The Behavior Diagrams group includes:

  • Activity Diagram
  • UML Activity Diagram illustrates the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components in a system and shows the overall flow of control.

    UML Activity Diagram

  • State Machine Diagram
  • UML state machine's goal is to overcome the main limitations of traditional finite-state machines while retaining their main benefits. UML state machine introduce the new concepts of hierarchically nested states and orthogonal regions, while extending the notion of actions.

  • Use Case Diagram
  • UML Use Case Diagram

    Use case diagrams are used at the development of software and systems for definition of functional system requirements or system of systems. Use case diagram presents the consecution of object’s actions (user’s or system’s) which are executed for reaching the definite result.

  • Interaction Overview Diagram
  • UML Interaction Overview Diagram schematically shows a control flow with nodes and a sequence of activities that can contain interaction or sequence diagrams.

    UML Interaction Overview Diagram

The subgroup of Interaction Diagrams controls the flow of control and data, and includes:

DFD Library — Design elements →

Data Flow Diagram is used to depict the flow of data through the system, where it enters and exits the system, as well as where it is stored. To simplify the process of drawing a data flow diagram (DFD), ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a DFD Library - design elements that will help you make your diagram as informative, streamlined and understandable as possible. Data flow diagrams are useful to create a general overview of the system or to document major data flows. Here are the library of symbols used in data flow diagrams (DFD). Data Flow diagrams are graphic means of business process visualization. Any business process may involve the data transfer. It can be easily shown using data flow diagrams. DFDs are used to represent the processing and transformation of data within a business process. One can find out the Vector library of DFD symbols, that is a component of ConceptDraw solution for Data Flow Diagramming and is welcome to use in as addition to the common Conceptdraw DIAGRAM diagramming facilities.DFD Library — Design elements *

Material Requisition Flowchart. Flowchart Examples →

A requisition form is one of the documents used for accounting in different manufacturing processes. There are two main types of requisition: a purchasing requisition and material requisition and difference between them is significant. Creating a flowchart might help you in understanding all the details of accounting process. Flowcharts are a best visual method for dividing a large and complicated procedure into a several little clear pieces. The main value-ability of an effective flowchart is its simpleness. Material requisition flowcharts are used to document the process of relationships between the different departments and the purchasing department within an organization. The flow chart gives the step-by-step guide on how is carried out the procurement process of the materials necessary for the functioning of the organization. This type of flowchart along with many other business flowcharts, one can easy create using ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution.Material Requisition Flowchart. <br>Flowchart Examples *
