State Machine Diagram
How To draw UML State Machine Diagrams
UML state machine's goal is to overcome the main limitations of traditional finite-state machines while retaining their main benefits. UML state machine introduce the new concepts of hierarchically nested states and orthogonal regions, while extending the notion of actions.
ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML State Machine Diagram library with 35 objects.
ConceptDraw Rapid UML solution provides UML State Machine Diagram samples, templates and library of vector stencils.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Rapid UML solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park to create your own UML state machine diagrams for both behavioral state machines and protocol state machines.
Draw behavioral state machine diagrams to model the behavior of individual entities (e.g., class instances).
Draw protocol state machine diagrams to visualize usage protocols and to specify the legal usage scenarios of classifiers, interfaces and ports.

Job duties in small companies are usually spread randomly among workers, causing lots of problems and misunderstanding. One of the ways to restore order in business processing is to create a cross-functional flowchart with swim lanes that would represent every step in production system. Another advantage of using swim lanes flowchart is that it represents not only processes, but people responsible for them.
Swim lane diagram is a kind of a process flow diagram. Its special feature is that it joins the features of process flow diagrams with organizational charts. Thus, a swim lane diagram display a participant of the business process in a conjunction with general flow of the business system. A swim lane diagram is looks similar to a swimming pool's lanes. Lanes can be horizontal and vertical. The lanes are pointed out relatively to resource name, which is assigned on implementation of the given part of the business process. ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution delivers the ability to design develop swim lanes flowcharts using the vector graphic objects of Swim Lanes 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.

Any business process consists from a number of tasks carrying out the certain business goal. It is useful to diagram business processes to ensure that they are as foolproof, logical and sequential as possible. This business process diagram describes a typical booking process flow by the example of a cab booking process. It can be used as a roadmap for any booking system implementation. Diagramming a business process allows you to look at the entire project and take into account all types of possible scenarios. Business process diagram helps you investigate and clarify the process thoroughly so that you can find out how it can be improved. Business process diagram supports team communications by ensuring that each process element is clear and everyone in the team is on the same page.
Sometimes your company brings you less profit than you expect it to be, and it’s difficult to reveal the causes. Maybe it’s time to learn new technologies, because business diagram are easily developed by means of special software, so you won’t make any extra effort. In return, you will increase your productivity and get more done in a less time.

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.

Building plans are usually very complicated and a hard work to do. It would be nice to use a proper drawing software to facilitate the task. Design a site plan quick and easily with all the stencils and samples from ConceptDraw libraries.
This drawing shows content of the ConceptDraw vector libraries related to the site planning and arrangement of the living environment. ConceptDraw delivers about 50 libraries containing near one and a half thousands vector objects that will help you to design territory arrangement plans and make the Site plan sketches. You can use the Parking and Roads library for designing a parking space, or drawing transport management schemes. The Site Accessories library provides a number of objects, that allow you to depict various equipment of vehicle access control, street lamps, benches, trash cans and other items of the street environment.

Database structures are usually described by ER-diagrams which represents entities as boxes with lines-connections between them. You can create any entity-relationship diagram (ERD) by means of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using ready-to-use templates and special libraries containing all the needed symbols and shapes. Creating a model for your database from now on can take just a few minutes.
ERD (entity relationship diagram) designed to show the logical structure of databases. It intended to depict the relationships between data components (entities). ERDs are a popular tool for software engineers and architects. Using ERD they can manage the every aspect of database design. Also ERD can be used as guidelines for testing and communications before software release. This diagram represents the file reference system of the WordPress web platform. Because entity relationship diagrams have such a broad application area through the prevalence of database technology, it can be applied for a wide range of users.
