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

Beginning from the 19th century, people tried to tame electricity. Nowadays, electrical engineering covers a wide range of applications starting from providing illumination in our homes to developing space technologies. Considering the fact that every project needs documentation, engineers use electrical diagram software to develop these projects. Standard electrical symbols of electrical components are recognizable all around the world.
This illustration represents the 26 libraries that are supplied by the ConceptDraw Electrical Engineering solution. The Electric Engineering libraries contains about a thousand objects enabling you to draw various charts depicting electrical connections and circuits, along with schemes of different equipment and devices. The electric engineering libraries delivered with ConceptDraw solution meet the standards adopted in the image to electrical circuits. So they can be used by professionals along with amateurs in electrical engineering.

UML state machine's goal is to overcome the main limitations of traditional finite-state machines while retaining their main benefits.
ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML State Machine library.

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps.
Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.
