UML - Deployment Diagram Examples

UML - Deployment Diagram Examples

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language used by business people and engineers to capture high-level views of processes and systems. Deployment diagrams are specialized types of UML diagrams that examine the hardware of a system and how it interacts with the software.

You can use Lucidchart to make UML diagrams with relative ease. If you need to collaborate, you and your team members can edit the same diagram together with our convenient real-time interface.
