Class diagrams typically are separated into conceptual-, design- and implementation-class diagrams.

But those differ only in what they depict, not in form.

The three module diagrams are at different abstraction levels. The conceptual
diagram(high level) might have "classes" such as Employee and Order whereas the
implementation diagram(low level) will have the classes you wish to implement.
