UML Modeling[edit]

VP-UML supports 13 types of diagrams:

Requirements Management[edit]

VP-UML supports requirements management including use cases, SysML requirement diagrams and textual analysis.

A SysML requirement diagram specifies the capability or condition that must be delivered in the target system. Capability refers to the functions that the system must support. Condition means that the system should be able to run or produce the result given a specific constraint. VP-UML provides a SysML requirement diagram for specifying and analyzing requirements.

Business Process Modeling[edit]

Supports BPMN 2.0 for modeling of business processes.

Data Modeling[edit]

VP-UML supports both Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD) and Object Relational Mapping Diagrams (ORMD). ERD is used to model the relational database. ORMD is one of the tools to show the mapping between class from object-oriented world and entity in relational database world.
