Learn about the UML diagram with the help of the printable UML diagrams below. We provide you with some examples of the diagrams, all are printable and free! The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose, developmental, modeling language in the field of software engineering that is intended to provide a standard way to visualize the design of a system. You can see the first example of the diagram in the image below.
A UML diagram is purposed to visually represent a system along with its main actors, roles, actions, artifacts or classes, in order to better understand, alter, maintain, or document information about the system. This diagram is based on diagrammatic representations of software components. By using visual representations, we are able to better understand possible flaws or errors in software or business processes. Observe other examples of UML diagram below.
UML can be applied to diverse application domains with all major object and component software development methods and for various implementation platforms. The key to making a UML diagram is connecting shapes that represent an object or class with other shapes to illustrate relationships and the flow of information and data. The current UML standards call for 13 different types of diagrams: class, activity, object, use case, sequence, package, state, component, communication, composite structure, interaction overview, timing, and deployment.
UML diagrams help project teams communicate, explore potential designs, and validate the architectural design of the software. We hope these examples of the diagram give you at least a brief idea about what is UML along with UML examples. To download the diagram, simply click on the image and choose the save image shortcut!
