UML State Machine Diagram.Design Elements
UML State Machine Diagram is a type of Behavior Diagrams that displays the finite state machine with states and state transitions.
UML State Machine Diagram is a realization of the mathematical concept of a finite state machine. State Machine Diagram is an oriented graph for finite state machine in what tops represent states and connectors show transitions between two states. States are represented as rounded rectangles and state transitions as arrows. The Initial State of the system is represented as black circle, and Final State as encircled black circle.
UML State Machine Diagram is the object-based version of Harel State Chart that is extended by UML. UML State Machines keep the main benefits of traditional finite state machines and also overcome their restrictions. UML State Machines extend the notion of actions.
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 State Machine Diagram use the UML State Machine Diagram library.
UML State Machine Diagram library contains 35 shapes:
- Send signal state
- Frame, Fragment
- Entry point
- History pseudostate
- Junction pseudostate
- Choice pseudostate
- Simple state
- State with compartments
- Composite state
- Transition text
- Final state
- Terminate pseudostate
- Exit point
- Vertical fork/join pseudostate
- Horizontal fork/join pseudostate
- Composite state (with substates)
- Initial state
- Internal behavior

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical.
This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.

A competent delegation of responsibilities between workers guarantees business success in most cases. At first sight, it might seem that workflow diagram symbols are quite similar to a regular flowchart. But workflow diagram is a more accurate way to present working processes.
Workflow diagrams are helpful for a working process analyzation, to depict a pathway of process issues, personalize responsibilities and identify resources that will help to optimize a workflow. Generally, Workflow diagram deploys flowchart symbols for displaying work process steps and relationships. But, often it require some additions and improvements to become more professional and illustrative. The Workflow solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides the user with a big library of symbols that are designed especially for workflow diagrams.

There are a lot of structured analysis and design technique methodologies used to describe systems and data sources. To visualize data structures, data flow diagrams can be used for various purposes in the area of software engineering. Nowadays these diagrams are also used in the area of business analysis and information system analysis.
This data flow diagram depicts an account processing system of a typical account department of a small manufacturing enterprise. It shows the data transmission through the order processing to shipping verification. This data flow diagram was created according to standard of Yourdon and Coad notation. The vector graphic objects of Yourdon/Coad notation symbols was delivered by ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution. The current DFD can be employed as an example of a business process model, representing the set of business events and interactions commonly engaged in a accounts receivable process.
