Screen Flow Diagram (Wireframing)

Screen Flow Diagram allows you to connect your wireframes into a flow with branches according to the user's interactions.

Entity Relationship Diagram (Data Modeling)

Entity Relationship Diagram (E-R diagram or ERD) describes types of a data domain and how they are interconnected. It is used to design data models, especially for database systems.

Data Flow Diagram (Other Diagrams)

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) shows a flow of data in a process or a system. It also depicts inputs and outputs.

Flowchart (Other Diagrams)

Flowchart is a diagram which depicts a workflow, process or algorithm. It may be used to show a succession of steps how to solve a task.

User Interface Diagram (Wireframing)

User Interface Diagram describes the appearance of application screens and forms in form of wireframes. The amount of details is up to the designer's decision. The diagram may represent only the basic layout, highlight some parts of layout or it may provide a detailed view on the designed user interface and its various aspects.

Shapes (Drawing Group)

Software Ideas Modeler offers dozens of basic shapes that can be used on any diagram. You may find the shape tools in the Drawing group in the toolbox.

Profile Diagram (UML)

UML Profile Diagram describes and defines extensions to UML language. The extension mechanism allows you to adjust the language to a specific domain or platform. The extensions are defined via stereotypes.

Timing Diagram (UML)

UML timing diagram is focused mainly on time, it shows the changes of classifiers in time depicted on a timeline. The timelines are stacked vertically, the time increases from left to right.

Interaction Overview Diagram (UML)

UML Interaction Overview Diagram provides a high-level view on interactions in a system or a subsystem. It depicts the flow in similar way as an activity diagram, but instead of action nodes it uses other interaction diagrams and interaction references.

Composite Structure Diagram (UML)

Composite structure diagram shows the internal structure of a classifier, its parts and ports via which it communicates with the environment. It models collaborations where each element has its defined role.

Deployment Diagram (UML)

UML Deployment Diagram depicts deployment of artifacts on nodes. It is used for showing the placements of artifacts (software, system, module, etc.) on physical nodes (hardware, server, database, etc.) and the relationships between particular parts of the solution.

Component Diagram (UML)

Component diagram offers a view on a complex system. It depicts the interfaces provided and/or required by the parts of system and the relationships between the parts. The parts are represented by components and other artifacts.

Package Diagram (UML)

UML Package Diagram shows dependencies between the packages in the model. It depicts the structure and organization of project in the large scale.

Object Diagram (UML)

Object diagram is a structural UML diagram. It describes a system or its part at a specific time. It models instances, their values and relationships. It may be use to show examples of data structures.

State Machine Diagram (UML)

State machine diagram describes states of en entity (device, process, program, software, module, etc.) and transitions between the states. Conditions specifies when a transition from a state to another state may be used.

Communication Diagram (UML)

UML Communication Diagram shows interactions in form of messages between objects and parts, which are represented by lifelines. Communication Diagram is a modified form of UML Sequence Diagram, but unlike it, its elements do not have to be ordered horizontally and may have any position in the diagram.

Activity Diagram (UML)

Activity diagram is a behavior diagram, which shows a scenario using a flow of actions. It models a sequence of actions, decisions based on conditions, concurrent branches and various cycles.

Sequence Diagram (UML)

Sequence diagram models communication among objects in sequential order. It shows object, classes and actors involved in the scenario and exact order of messages. It consists of vertical lines which belong to lifelines and horizontal lines of messages.

Use Case Diagram (UML)

Use case diagram consists of use cases, actors and relationships among them. It presents a user interaction with the system and defines the specifications of use cases.

Class Diagram (UML)

Class Diagram is a static structure diagram which describes the structure of a system by showing its classes with their attributes and operations, and the relationships among objects.
