60+ UML Tools Help You Design Workflow Easily

folder-down-icon As you know, UML (Unified Modeling Language) is a standardized general purpose modeling language . It includes a set of graphical notation techniques to create visual models of the software-intensive systems. There are many business process, architecture, software and system modeling design tools based on the UML. Now you can create a perfect chartflow in a few minutes. Following we have collect 60+ very useful UML tools for your reference. Hope they will be helpful to your work if you still design the chart flow only in the excel.

    :) So you call SmartDraw a UML tool? I suppose you forgot to add PowerPoint to the list then as well…

  2. SixGoGo says:

    Hye, Martijn

    Why SmartDraw is not a UML tool? I found some tutorials on how to draw a UML with SmartDraw here:
