UML Notation

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.
Two types of diagrams are used in UML: Structure Diagrams and Behavior Diagrams. Behavior Diagrams represent the processes proceeding in a modeled environment. Structure Diagrams represent the elements that compose the system.

UML Class Diagram. Design Elements

UML Class Diagrams describes the structure of a system by showing the system's classes, their attributes, and the relationships among the classes.

UML Class Diagram Constructor

UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the: classes of a system, attributes, operations, and the relationships between them.
The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM includes the UML Class Diagram library that helps you to design the UML Class Diagram quick and easy. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from the library into your document to create the UML Class Diagram.

Use Case Diagrams technology with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Use case diagrams are used at the development of software and systems for definition of functional system requirements or system of systems. Use case diagram presents the consecution of object’s actions (user’s or system’s) which are executed for reaching the definite result.

UML Class Diagram Generalization Example UML Diagrams

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 describes the use of the classes, the generalization associations between them, the multiplicity of associations and constraints. Provided UML diagram is one of the examples set that are part of Rapid UML solution.

Multi Layer Venn Diagram. Venn Diagram Example

To visualize the relationships between subsets of the universal set you can use Venn diagrams. To construct one, you should divide the plane into a number of cells using n figures. Each figure in the chart represents a single set of, and n is the number of represented sets. Splitting is done in a way that there is one and only one cell for any set of these figures, the points of which belong to all the figures from the set and do not belong to others. The plane on which the figures are represented, is the universal set U. Thus, the point which does not belong to any of the figures, belongs only to U.

SWOT Analysis Solution - Strategy Tools

A SWOT analysis helps professionals to identify the positives and negatives in the organization and in the external environment.

UML Object Diagram. Design Elements

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.

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. Venn Diagram as a Truth Table

Venn diagrams are illustrations used in the branch of mathematics known as set theory. They show the mathematical or logical relationship between different groups of things (sets). A Venn diagram shows all the possible logical relations between the sets.
The vector stencils library "Swimlanes" contains 20 swimlane shapes for drawing business process diagrams (BPMN 2.0) using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Swim lanes are a visual mechanism of organising and categorising activities, based on cross functional flowcharting, and in BPMN consist of two types: (1) Pool. Represents major participants in a process, typically separating different organisations. A pool contains one or more lanes (like a real swimming pool). A pool can be open (i.e., showing internal detail) when it is depicted as a large rectangle showing one or more lanes, or collapsed (i.e., hiding internal detail) when it is depicted as an empty rectangle stretching the width or height of the diagram. (2) Lane. Used to organise and categorise activities within a pool according to function or role, and depicted as a rectangle stretching the width or height of the pool. A lane contains the flow objects, connecting objects and artifacts." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]
The example "Design elements - Swimlanes BPMN 2.0" is included in the Business Process Diagram solution from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

How to Create a CCTV Diagram

CCTV (Closed-circuit television) diagram is used to depict a system of video monitoring. The CCTV diagram provides video cameras placement strategy.
CCTV diagram should include the scheme of strategic placement of video cameras, which capture and transmit videos to either a private network of monitors for real-time viewing or to a video recorder for later reference. CCTV is commonly used for surveillance and security purposes. Using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with the Security and Access Plans Solution lets you create professional looking video surveillance CCTV system plans, security plans, and access schemes.

Pie Chart Software

A pie chart is a circular diagram showing a set of data divided into proportional slices. There are several variations of this chart such as donut chart, exploded pie chart, multi-level pie charts. Although it is not very informative when a ring chart or circle chart has many sections, so choosing a low number of data points is quite important for a useful pie chart.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with Pie Charts solution helps to create pie and donut charts for effective displaying proportions in statistics, business and mass media for composition comparison, i.e. for visualization of part percentage inside one total.

IDEF4 Standard

Use Case Diagrams technology. IDEF4 standard implies not only graphical presentation but the additional information about diagrams of heredity, methods systematization and types which are contained in specifications.

Databases Access Objects Model with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

ConceptDraw Basic gives the opportunity of interaction with any ODBC-compatible databases. For this the Database Access Objects Model is provided. All calls to the database are made by certain methods of objects of this model.
