What is Activity Diagram?

Activity Diagrams describe how activities are coordinated to provide a service. Activity Diagrams consist of activities, states and transitions between activities and states. You can use activity diagram to model the logic of a single use case, or even how to coordinate a collection of use cases for the entire targeted system being developed. For example, to model how the events in a single use case relate to one another - in particular, use cases where activities may overlap and require coordination.

How to draw Activity Diagram?

Activity diagrams model the behavior of systems as they follow a process. They are a type of flow chart or workflow, but they use slightly different notation. Here is the main steps for developing an activity diagram:

  • Before drawing an activity diagram, we must have a clear understanding about the elements used in activity diagram.
  • The main element of an activity diagram is the activity itself. An activity is a function performed by the system.
  • After identifying the activities, we need to understand how they are associated with constraints and conditions.
