Create and modify systems in the environment supporting the Unified Modeling Language, all types of flowcharts and data flow diagrams, ER layouts, CRUD and Requirement diagrams, basic and advanced mind maps, etc. Detailed report and plan generation is possible.

Astah Professional can come in handy when you are working on a large project that requires careful planning and design. The tool has the advantage of supporting UML (Unified Modeling Language), which makes it compatible with other similar software. Likewise, its UML editor allows Mind Mapping. As you may have noticed, this is not the kind of tool intended for the general user as it requires expertise on other subject areas. Luckily, the product is accompanied with an excellent user guide. Besides, there are several video demos and a tutorial available on line.

The program’s interface has the sober look that characterizes technical software. There is a project view which gives you a glimpse of the whole work. Moreover, there are tabs that let you switch to other views, such as Structure Tree, Inheritance Tree, Map, Search and Alias.

The program lets you create practically any type of diagram necessary for modeling a project, including Sequence Diagram, Statemachine Diagram, Communication Diagram, Activity Diagram and Composite Structure Diagram, Flow Diagram, ER Diagram, CRUD, Requirement Diagram, Requirement Table, Traceability Map and Mind Map. It also allows converting Mind Maps to Data Flow Diagrams. more
