What is Flowchart?

Flowchart (aka. flow chart, flow diagram) is a picture of the steps in a process which represents the order and interaction of activities and decisions. The sequence, or flow, of the process is shown with arrows, while a variety of shapes or symbols can be used to depict the steps and decisions. Typically, flowcharts are be described as the picture of the logic to be included in the computer program, but they are independent of automated or manual tasks or solutions being modelled. Hence one can fully concentrate on the logic of the problem solving at this stage.

Why Flowchart?

  • Flowchart consists of only simple and standard symbols such as, the simple rectangles, ovals, diamonds and other shapes which is easy to understand and only need to take very little time to learn
  • Flowchart symbols are universally recognized across multiple disciplines, and will allow us to communicate a great deal of information accurately, efficiently, and succinctly.
  • Flowchart shows every step of a process in clear and explicit detail. The top-down and left-to-right flow of steps on the chart have a natural order and are easy to follow.
