Commonly Used Symbols in Detailed Process Flowcharts:
|| Show a Process or action step. This is the most common symbol in both process flowcharts and business process maps
|| Flow Line (Arrow, Connector)
||Flow line connectors show the direction that the process flows
||Indicates a question or branch in the process flow. Typically, a Decision flowchart shape is used when there are 2 options (Yes/No, No/No-Go, etc.)
|| Connector (Inspection)
||In process maps, this symbol is full sized and shows an Inspection point in the process flow
||Pretty self explanatory - the Document flowchart symbol is for a process step that produces a document
|| The Delay flowchart symbol depicts any waiting period that is part of a process. Delay shapes are common in process mapping

This image of the interactive diagram made in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM applying the Live Objects technology. The diagram shows the effect of Selection Sort algorithm. The left part of the chart is the input area. The diagram in the central part of the drawing is a flow chart showing of the selection sort algorithm. The flowchart includes basic flowchart symbols, that represent various stages of algorithm. The flowchart symbols are connected with arrows ended lines, that depict the direction of the process flow. On the right side — the result is displayed.
