Plan & optimize systems with use case diagrams
To make anything work, you have to understand what factors contribute to the outcome. Visualize how users or other systems interact with yours to create website, apps, or even business processes.
Document software with class diagrams
Whether you're onboarding a new team member or discussing key structural changes, a class diagram can help you quickly understand the structure of your system by laying out all classes, including their attributes, operations, and relationships to other objects.
Ensure proper functionality with sequence diagrams
Capture how objects interact in a sequence including the sequence of messages exchanged between those objects that carry out the functionality of the scenario.

How to make an UML diagram
Set goals & objectives
Determine what requirements need to be met for your system to be considered successful.
Use the importer tool or start from a template or blank diagram
However you get your architecture on the canvas, make sure you accurately represent your current structure before you start making changes.
Assess your diagram for opportunities and risks
Look at your current architecture and determine where you can add or improve things.
Stylize shapes and lines
Customize your colors, text, and lines to make things easy to read.
Collaborate and share
Get feedback from others, make any necessary edits, and share with the right people once it's finalized.
