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.

Plumbing systems are very important for any manufacture, and it's a good practice to have a clear scheme of that system. To create one, you should use a piping and instrumentation diagram software with a possibility to save files in vector format, so you can print them without quality loss. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a great tool for creating diagrams, and you don't need to be very experienced to use it efficiently.
This example of Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) depicts a scheme that illustrates the physical sequence and functional communications of piping, instrumentation and plumbing equipment components of a typical food trailer.
Seeking to avoid health troubles in a mobile food service , the plumbing demands for food trailers must be considered accurately. This P&ID shows all of piping including a basic set of piping system components along with multiple sinks, extra water heaters and other elements to meet health guidelines.

UML Object Diagram shows the structure of a modeled system at a specific time.
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 Object library.

Local area network connects computers and other network appliances within an area, such as office building or a campus. It can be difficult to provide such network without a predesigned plan. For these purposes you can use network diagram software, which helps you to create LAN network diagrams and office network diagrams quickly and effortless. This will speed up your work and you can save the diagram for the future network improvements.
The following diagram illustrates a network topology of the small office. LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.

In the course of recent decades data visualization went through significant development and has become an indispensable tool of journalism, business intelligence and science. The way visual information may be conveyed is not limited simply to static or dynamic representation, it can also be interactive. Infographics can be conditionally divided into several general levels. Primarily, this is level of visualization of information, its interpretation and association on any ground. Second level can be defined as a visualization of knowledge, depiction of thoughts and ideas in the form of images or diagrams. Finally, the level of data visualization, which processes data arrays in charts, enabling the information to be more clearly perceived. You can also identify the main approaches to the creation of infographics: exploratory and narrative. Exploratory method insists on minimalist design in favor of data precision without unnecessary details and is common for scientific researches and ana

When we start to speak about databases, we must always mention database structure visualization. One of the most common ways to do it is to create an entity relationship diagram, and to put appropriate symbols on it. It is important either for database projecting and for its' future maintenance.
Entity Relationship Diagram describes data elements and their relationships within a database. There are a set of special symbols that depict each element of an entity relationship diagram. Entities - represents some stable components such as supplier, employee, invoice, client, etc. Relation symbols show how the entities interact. Attributes define characteristics of the relationships. Attributes can be one-to-one or many-to-many. Physical symbols is used in the physical models. They represent items such as fields, tables, types and keys. ERD physical symbols are the building material for the database. Notation lines are used to illustrate the relationships. The most common method is Crow’s Feet notation. You can use ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution to represent a database using the Entity-Relationship model.

Drawing the diagrams we try to find in help the powerful software and now we have the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. The ability easily create the SDL diagrams is made possible thanks to unique Specification and Description Language (SDL) Solution from the Industrial Engineering Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 2 libraries - SDL Connectors and SDL Diagrams that contain 70 predesigned SDL flowchart symbols.

Every engineering project starts from a terms of reference document. The next stage of developing is a technical drawing, which requires using appropriate software. However, revisions and discussions about requirements are possible at any stage of development.
This technical drawing demonstrates a schematic flow diagram of pulp reclaiming. This diagram of magnetite pulp reclaiming is created using ConceptDraw Chemical and Process engineering solution, The solution delivers more than 460 vector graphic icons and connectors. Generally, it is intended for designing process and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) for chemical and process engineering. block flow diagrams (BFD), process flow diagrams (PFD) for chemical industry.
