What is Flowchart?

A flowchart describes a process, workflow or operation. It shows the steps, which the process "flows" through from beginning to end. People often create flowcharts in business improvement initiatives, defining troubleshooting steps, and showing visualizing complex mathematical algorithms. Flowcharts use simple symbols to represent steps, decisions and other flow elements, making it easy to be understood by everyone.
