Definition - What does Structure Diagram mean?
Techopedia explains Structure Diagram
A structure diagram visualizes how a system works from the initial input, to processing and, finally, to the desired output. It is especially useful in determining all of the interfaces involved between the different parts and helps developers agree on how each part should be connected based on the models being shown on the structure diagram.
There are various kinds of structure diagrams, including the following:
- Data structure diagram - A conceptual data model used to document the entities in a database, their relationships, as well as the constraints associated with them
- Composite structure diagram - A type of static structure diagram that shows the internal structure of a class and its collaborations with other classes and objects
