Activity Diagram Example: Planning a Show


This is an activity diagram example that shows activities involved in planning a show for a theatre offce. The connectors show the sequential dependencies between actions. For example, a show must be selected before they can be scheduled. Besides, forks and joins are used to represent actions that happen in parallel. For example, after the show is scheduled, the theatre can begin to publicize it, buy scripts, hire artists, build sets, design lighting, and make costumes, all concurrently. Before rehearsal can begin, however, the scripts must be ordered and the artist must be hired.

What is Activity Diagram?

Activity diagrams illustrate the flow of functionality in a system. They are often used in business modeling to show the business workflow. Activity diagrams may also be used in requirements gathering, for example, to illustrate the flow of events through a use case. These diagrams define where the workflow starts, where it ends, what activities occur during the workflow, and in what order the activities occur. An activity is a task that is performed during the workflow.

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.
