“A flowchart is a type of diagram that represents an algorithm, workflow or process, showing the steps as boxes of various kinds, and their order by connecting them with arrows. This diagrammatic representation illustrates a solution model to a given problem. Flowcharts are used in analyzing, designing, documenting or managing a process or program in various fields.” [Wikipedia]

This definition flowchart gives a clear answer for the question "What is a flowchart?". It is convenient to use a powerful ConceptDraw PRO software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "What is a Diagram" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park to design flowcharts of various types which will additionally illustrate a definition flowchart.

According to the definition flowchart, the flowcharts consist from the simple geometric symbols and arrows which define relationships. Flowcharts Solution offers you two libraries with large set of already predesigned flowchart symbols and arrows. You need only drag the desired of them from the libraries to document and connect as necessary.

For example, if we talking about programming, you will need an oval symbol to represent beginning and end of a program, a rectangle symbol for representing process, a diamond symbol for decision, a parallelogram for I/O process, and a cloud for Internet.
