A visual model describes a complete system from a specific perspective for a better understanding of the system.

A standard modeling language such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML) may be used to represent a proposed system by means of a series of diagrams each representing a different view of the system. Such a model helps identify ambiguities before development begins and ensures that all stakeholders and team members have the same understanding of the project's objectives.

In software development, UML is used to visualize, specify, construct and document the system before coding begins.

Visual Modeling with UML may use any combination of:

  1. Use case Diagrams
  2. Class Diagrams
  3. Object Diagrams
  4. State Diagrams
  5. Collaboration Diagrams
  6. Sequence Diagrams
  7. Activity Diagrams
  8. Deployment Diagrams
