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.

Usage of Flowchart?

Flowchart is one of the most widely-used diagram in our day-to-day life and here is just a few examples listed as follows:

  • Project Planning - Flowcharts are especially useful in mapping out a new project. Sequences in a project having an order of steps and accompanying decisions are best visually shown by a flowchart.
  • Process Documentation - Having a reference in doing a process makes it easier to replicate results and have the same preferred results every time. This is also important in developing improvements in the process
  • Workflow Management - Integration of a process would be easier as setting standard procedures for processes achieves a consistent and quality desired result.
