Uses of Sequence Diagram Templates
In Unified Modeling Language (UML), sequence diagrams show the sequential order of interactions between objects in a system. They go hand in hand with other UML diagrams and are specifically used to outline how the system should function for a single use case.
Sequence diagrams are a type of UML behavioral diagram (or interaction diagram) because they visualize how system components work together to carry out a process. They’re primarily used in software development and business applications to:
- Design and plan software and web applications
- Model the functionality of system operations
- Provide context for UML use case diagrams
- Document and evaluate system requirements

How to create your own Sequence Diagram
Label the objects/classes to identify the components involved in the sequence.
Drag any additional shapes you need into the diagram , and position them correctly to represent the sequence.
Use arrows to map the flow of interactions or events.
Finally, label the arrows where necessary to describe what event is occurring.
