We want to create a Data Model for the infrastructure inside our Wastewater Treatment Plant (similiar to the Water Utilities Template and other ESRI UML Models). What is the best approach to do this...using UML? if we do use UML, what software do we need? or using Geodatabase Designer? this is a bit clunky, any news on if ESRI updated this tool for 10? it has a great potential. Is Visio a good tool to use for this? if so, any advice you can give would be very helpful.

Our goal is to diagram our data, show relationships, and be able to generate a new or modify our existing geodatabase.

What are your recommendations or thoughts?
