UML Modeling[edit]

Visual Paradigm supports 14 types of diagrams:

Requirements Management[edit]

Visual Paradigm supports requirements management including user stories, 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. Visual Paradigm provides a SysML requirement diagram for specifying and analyzing requirements.

Business Process Modeling[edit]

Supports BPMN 2.0 for modeling of business processes. The latest version (Aug 2016) also supports Case Management with CMMN.

Data Modeling[edit]

Visual Paradigm 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.
