Custom Diagram

A Custom diagram is an extended Class diagram that is used to capture requirements, user interfaces or custom-design models.

The below example reflects a Requirements diagram. Requirement elements can be linked back to Use Cases and Components in the system to illustrate how a particular system requirement is met. Change and Defect (Issue) elements look the same as Requirement elements and can be coded and managed in the same way.

Screen design is supported through a stereotyped Screen element and UI Controls. Use this model to design high level system prototypes.

Custom models provide a few extensions to the UML model and enable some exploratory and non-rigorous experimentation with model elements and diagrams.
