A Song may have any number of Renditions. A Rendition is associated with exactly one Song. A Rendition is associated with Musicians and Instruments. A given Musician-Instrument combination is associated with any number of Renditions. A specific Rendition-Musician combination may be associated with any number of Instruments. A given Rendition-Instrument combination is associated with any number of Musicians. A system can be understood more easily by shifting focus to each package in turn. 10. The associated classes from the Music and Distribution packages are also shown, detailing how the Media package is related to the other two packages.

7 illustrates the notation with the music industry example at a very high level. Music is created and placed on Media. The Media is then Distributed. There is an association between Music and Media, and between Media and Distribution. Let us look at the organization of the classes. 8 with the classes listed. The Music package contains classes that are responsible for creating the music. Examples of Groups are the Beatles and the Bangles. Sarah McLachlan and Sting are Artists. Groups and Artists are involved in creating the music.

The needs of the database designer can be met by writing the class with only the class name and attribute compartments showing. Hiding operations and showing attributes is an uncommon syntax for a software designer, but it is common for database design. Lastly, in high-level diagrams, it is often desirable to illustrate the relationships of the classes without becoming entangled in the details of the attributes and operations. Classes can be written with just the class name compartment when simplicity is desired.
