What is Flowchart?

The flowchart is a means of visually presenting the flow of data through an information processing systems, the operations performed within the system and the sequence in which they are performed. Flowcharts provide a overview of the structure and sequence of activities or actions to be performed. Elements are represented by simple icons (circles, rectangles, diamonds, or other shapes), with lines and arrows representing connections between events and the order in which they occur. A flowchart indicates sequences and decision points as well as the start and end points. Since it is easier to grasp relationships in a visual form than in a verbal description, flowcharts can prevent the omission of steps in a process. Flowcharts are particularly useful for instructional designers who are novice or occasional programmers.
