UML for Software Engineers
Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a visual modeling language in the field of software engineering. It is an open standard that provides the graphic notations for creating the visual models of object-oriented software systems. UML took in the notations of the Object-modeling technique, Object-oriented software engineering and the Booch method.
UML is widely used by software engineers, software developers and software designers, i.e. by those specialists who need to create the detailed software documentation, to specify the life cycle of the software development.
Unified Modeling Language (UML)
There are two types of diagrams used in UML: Structure Diagrams and Behavior Diagrams.
Structure Diagrams represent the elements that compose the system. There are seven types of Structure Diagrams that must be present in any modeled system:
Behavior Diagrams represent the processes proceeding in a modeled environment. The Behavior Diagrams group includes:
The subgroup of Interaction Diagrams controls the flow of control and data, and includes:
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM presents the intuitive RapidDraw interface that helps you to make the UML Diagram of any of these 13 types quick and easy.
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides templates and samples for each type of UML diagram that help you to create the UML Diagrams in one moment.
13 libraries of the Rapid UML Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your UML diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the UML Diagram.
The documents of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with UML Diagrams are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying or converting to a variety of formats: image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Rapid UML solution is perfect for drawing professional looking UML diagrams.

Cause and Effect diagram (Ishikawa diagram or Fishbone diagram) software helps you to show in one diagram the factors of Equipment, People, Process, Environment, Management and Materials, which all in general affect the overall problem and gives the base for the further analysis. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is perfect software for designers and software developers who need to create Fishbone diagrams. You will get a simple problem-analysis tool - Fishbone software tools for design element to easy construct specific diagrams and identify many possible causes for an effect to attack complex problem solving.

To maintain big and complex mechanical systems, you need an appropriate education and tools. It’s needless to say that mechanical drawing is important part of any industrial project. There are a lot of standard symbols depicting valves, pumps, motors, etc.
This drawing illustrates the content of the Fluid Power Equipment library provided by the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. The solution is composed from the 8 libraries, containing about 500 elements related to mechanical engineering visualization. it will be helpful for drawing various schemes, charts and blueprints of pneumatic, and hydraulic equipment or other drawing related mechanical engineering. All drawings can be freely resized without loss of quality due to the vector graphics components of its facilities.

In electronics, a logic gate is an idealized or physical device implementing a Boolean function; that is, it performs a logical operation on one or more logical inputs, and produces a single logical output. Depending on the context, the term may refer to an ideal logic gate, one that has for instance zero rise time and unlimited fan-out, or it may refer to a non-ideal physical device
26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.

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.

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you have, a bar or a gym, there are common concepts for any of them. One of those concepts is accounting, and to facilitate the work with the figures, you can use accounting flowchart symbols and create a clear and representative scheme. You can create flowchart for auditing, tax accounting and even for planning your own budget.
A graphical tool for displaying successive processes is flowchart. This method is mostly suited to represent an accounting process. The sequence of steps in the accounting process usually consists of standard accounting procedures, that can be depicted by using a minimal number of symbols, applied for the basic flowcharting. The advanced opportunity to create professional Accounting Flow charts is provided by ConceptDraw Accounting Flowcharts solution. It includes contains a library of accounting flowchart symbols used when drawing the accounting process flow.
