An Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) -
flowchart used for business process modelling
Event Driven Process Chain (EPC)
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a business process mapping software for making EPC flowcharts to provide business process modelling. The Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) flowcharts allows managers visually present business process models for making decisions for business.
The EPC is able to cope with extremely diverse and complex businesses processes. EPC flowchart as a result can represent the various elements in a way which is easy to understand.
An EPC flowchart is a multifaceted method of analysing business processes. It makes sure that all the elements are indicated and business owners or managers are able to pinpoint duplication or inefficiencies of tasks and inputs. Just like any ARIS business process modelling method, EPC flowchart is an indispensible tool to help businesses analyse and improve their processes. Its excellent business process improvement tools.

Big and complex projects sometimes need some simplification of plans and schedules. That's why Program Evaluation and Review Technique was invented and first implemented in 1958. You can create PERT diagrams effortlessly with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and share them with your colleagues.
Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) is a method that is used to assess and analyze projects. PERT is a valuable tool for the project management practice. PERT gives an assessment and analysis of the time needed to the project completion. A PERT chart is a visual tool that delivers a graphical view of a project timeline. It is used to display the sequences and dependences of project tasks necessary to complete a project. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM delivers the possibility to build a PERT along with other diagrams applied to assist management process by using its Seven Management and Planning Tools solution.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

Diagramming is an astonishing way to visualize business processes. The list of the most common business process flowchart symbols is quite long starting from basic flowcharts, continuing with SIPOC diagrams. Business process modeling was never easier than now, with special ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution.
To carry out all professional standard requirements for business processes mapping, it is necessarily to follow the special graphical notations. ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution offers an exhaustive suite of tools to aid business process mapping. There are three vector libraries SIPOC Diagrams, Business Process Flowcharts, and Swim Lanes that contains totally more than 50 symbols of standard BPM notations. This is all that professionals need to effectively evaluate and manage quality in business processes.

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.
