What is Flow chart?

A flowchart (aka. flow chart, flow diagram) visually represents and organizes the steps used to write or explain a solution for a problem. It is a diagram of the "flow" of the process. A flowchart is a tool that allows you to break any process down into individual events or activities and shows the logical relationships between them. For example, flowcharts enable programmers to work these steps out before needing to translate their behaviors into code. Hence a flowchart is a symbolic representation of a solution to a given task. A flowchart can be developed for practically any job. Flowcharting is a tool that can help us to develop and represent graphically program logic sequence. It also enables us to trace and detect any logical or other errors before the programs are written.

How to draw Flowchart?

  1. Describe the process in a one-line statement.
  2. Start with the 'trigger' event that initiates the process.
  3. Note each successive action in concise terms, avoiding ambiguous descriptions.
  4. Continue describing each event, action, or decision as it occurs in sequence, until the process is concluded (a 'target' point).
