UML Use Case Diagrams
How To draw UML Use Case Diagrams
ConceptDraw has several examples that help you to start using software for designing UML Use Case Diagrams:
- Banking System
- Trading System Usage Scenarios
- Ticket Processing System
- Project Administrator
You can use the built-in template for drawing own UML Use Case Diagrams with appropriate stencils of UML notation for making custom diagrams.
The main objective is a Use Case Diagrams can help provide a higher-level view of the system for join user and the developer to discuss functionality and system behavior.
The UML use case diagram template "System of goods selling via catalogues" is created using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Rapid UML solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Rapid UML solution provides templates, examples and libraries of stencils for quick and easy drawing the all types of system and software engineering diagrams according to UML 2.4 notation.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with UML use case diagram templates, samples and stencil library from Rapid UML solution to visualize a higher-level view of the system for modelling the functionality and behavior.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Class Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the structure of the building and can be used by building companies, real estate agencies, at the buying / selling of the realty.

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling.
An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.

Flowcharts can be used in designing and documenting both simple and complex processes or programs and, similar to the other types of diagrams, they can help visualize what happens and so help understand some definite process, and, as a result, find flaws, bottlenecks and other features within it.

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart.
This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor. The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.
