Optimize a Workflow
The first step to optimize a workflow is to get its visual depiction. Then you can analyse and optimize the workflow making changes to your workflow diagram. We recommend to use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with the Workflow Diagram solution to visualize and optimize your workflow. It allows you produce easy-to-change scalable vector graphic workflow and then present it to your team or partners.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a professional diagramming software. To optimize of working processes and for presenting them in a simple visual manner, the Workflow Diagrams solution can be used. With the help of a workflow diagram templates one can make start optimization of company workflows.

The Workflow Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with samples, templates and library of vector stencils for drawing workflow diagrams. It represents the transferring of data, documents, and tasks during performance of a work process. Use workflow flowcharts to analyze the work processes, to show the path of the tasks, the responsible persons and the associated documents, to identify required resources, to optimize a workflow, and to discover its inherent weak points.

One of the most popular option helps to draw diagrams faster is pre-designed set of examples related to each kind of diagram. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with the Workflow Diagrams solution delivers a complete set of workflow process examples helps you to start making your own workflow faster.

A workflow diagram is less general notation than a process flow diagram. Workflow as a term can apply to organizational process which involves people, resources, documents, sort of data, for instance; whereas a process is general collection of steps occuring in any sort of activity. That is why process flow diagram can be used as workflow diagram to describe business process, data flow or department interactions.
The fastest way to create a workflow diagram is using pre-designed workflow template. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with the Workflow Diagrams solution delivers rich set of workflow diagram templates you may start from.

Every engineering project starts from a terms of reference document. The next stage of developing is a technical drawing, which requires using appropriate software. However, revisions and discussions about requirements are possible at any stage of development.
This technical drawing demonstrates a schematic flow diagram of pulp reclaiming. This diagram of magnetite pulp reclaiming is created using ConceptDraw Chemical and Process engineering solution, The solution delivers more than 460 vector graphic icons and connectors. Generally, it is intended for designing process and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) for chemical and process engineering. block flow diagrams (BFD), process flow diagrams (PFD) for chemical industry.

Flowcharts can be used in designing and documenting both simple and complex processes or programs and, similar to the other types of diagrams, they can help visualize what happens and so help understand some definite process, and, as a result, find flaws, bottlenecks and other features within it.
