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.

There are many ways to define the flow of information within a system. Structured-systems analysis method often uses data flow diagrams to show data flow, data storages and data processing visualization. These diagrams are easy to develop and quite useful.
Here is a dataflow diagram presenting an example of the manufacturing process flow. The oval process shapes represent a process that controls data within the current system. The process may produce data or make some action based on data. Data flows are represented by lines. They show the movement of information through the system. The direction of the data flow is depicted by the arrow. The external entities are shown by rectangles. They represent the external entities interacting with the system. The data store objects (unclosed rectangles) are used to show data bases participating in a process flow.
