How to Build Cloud Computing Diagram
Principal Cloud Manufacturing

The term “cloud” is very popular and widely used now, it is a server, data processing centre, or a network which lets to store the data and software, provides access to them, allows to run applications without installation and gives the possibility to process data hosted remotely via the Internet connection.

With increasing a competition, each manufacturing company strives to support flexible and scalable business processes, that's why the modern technologies, such as the cloud manufacturing, are so actively applied today.

Cloud manufacturing (CMfg) is a new, relatively recently developed manufacturing paradigm. It is based on the service-oriented technologies and advanced computing technologies under the support of cloud computing, popular manufacturing models such as ASP, NM, AM, MGrid. Cloud manufacturing are the high-quality, effective, safe, reliable, cheap, on-demand manufacturing services for the whole lifecycle of manufacturing. It includes all steps of a product lifecycle - design, simulation, production, test and maintenance. Cloud manufacturing offers the capabilities of intelligent management, lets to share and jointly use the manufacturing capabilities and resources, transform them into the manufacturing services, the on-demand use of services is offered for all users involved to this manufacturing process.

    Types of Flowchart - Overview

    A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps. Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.Process flowchart sample - Human resource management process
