"State machine" vs. "stm" diagrams - what's the difference?

Postby systems123 » Fri Sep 22, 2017 3:08 pm

What is the difference between these apparently two different types of state machine diagrams? They appear functionally the same except for different diagram symbol shading.

Hello,

One diagram is an UML State Machine diagram, another diagram is SysML State Machine Diagram. If you go to Diagram properties (move mouse cursor anywhere on empty space in diagram, click right mouse button and choose diagram properties), you will find that the diagram that has "stm" in it, has a property "Show Abbreviated Type" under group Diagram Frame set to true. If you turn it off, instead of "stm" you will see a full diagram type, as in simple State Machine Diagram.

Thank for the fast response. Is there any practical difference between the UML and SysML state machine diagrams? Or are they interchangeable?
