UML Package Diagram. Design Elements
UML Package Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that represents the packages of the model and dependencies between them.
Package Diagrams are used to illustrate the layered architecture of a software system. The packages depict the different layers of a software system. To indicate the types of dependencies between the packages are used the stereotypes.
There are two special types of dependencies between the packages in UML: package import and package merge.
To design UML Package Diagrams use the following shape types:
- Package – it is the mechanism indispensable for organizing the elements and diagrams into the groups.
- Class - it is a description of logical structure of the system, its objects and their behavior in the system.
- Interface - it is a specification of the behavior.
- Object - it is an instance of class, and others.
UML Package Diagrams are very useful for working with large systems, because they allow to clearly view all the dependencies between the elements of these systems.
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 Package Diagram use the UML Package Diagram library.
UML Package Diagram library contains 23 shapes:
- Class 2
- Class 1
- Line connector
- Smart connector
- Content connector

Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a general-purpose modeling language for systems engineering applications.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with SysML Solution from the Software Development Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park specially to help systems engineers design various model systems with SysML.
A Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a graphical technique which allows effectively model and analyze the information processes and systems. The ability to fast and easy create the DFDs is made possible with Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. For designing the Data Flow Diagrams are used simple DFD flowchart symbols which are connected each other by arrows depicting the data flow from one step to another.
