Definition - What does Component Flow Diagram mean?

A component flow diagram is a type of UML diagram that illustrates and defines the overall components that are part of a composite software system.

Techopedia explains Component Flow Diagram

A component flow diagram is primarily used by software developers and is created before the actual development of the project to provide a formal overview of the system/software being developed. It defines the structural relationships and connections of different components within a system. As with other structural diagrams, component flow diagrams use rectangles, lines/connectors and different symbols. Each of the components is represented using a rectangular box, with its name written within. The connectors are used to define the relationship and/or the dependencies between different components.
