Example Process Flow
What is a Process Flowchart?
A flowchart is a picture of the separate steps of a process in sequential order.
Elements: materials or services entering or leaving the process (inputs and outputs), sequence of actions, time involved at each step and/or process measurements, decisions that must be made, people who become involved.
The process described: a manufacturing process, an administrative or service process, a project plan. This is a generic tool that can be adapted for a wide variety of purposes.
When to Use a Flowchart
- Analyzing complex processes
- Designing complex processes
- Documenting complex processes
- Managing complex processes
- Representing process operations
- Showing the steps
- Diagrammatic representation solution to a given problem
- Represented Process operations
- Helping to visualize a process
- Helping to understand a process
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a Process Flowcharts software. This software includes basic package of process flow examples. The software contains object libraries with vector stencils that allows you use RapidDraw technology. By clicking on direction arrows you can add a new object to the flowchart.

An event-driven process chain diagram is a flowchart used in business process analysis. It evolved from Architecture of Integrated Information Systems (ARIS) and utilised in the business process improvement and analysis. It is also used to facilitate enterprise resource planning.
An EPC diagram is a complex flowchart that shows different business processes through various workflows. The workflows are seen as functions and events that are connected by different teams or people, as well as tasks that allow business processes to be executed.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a software for making EPC diagrams that allows managers visually present business process models for making decisions for business.

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.

A Flowchart is a graphically representation of the process that step-by-step lead to the solution the problem. The geometric figures on the Flowchart represent the steps of the process and are connected with arrows that show the sequence of the actions. The Flowcharts are widely used in engineering, architecture, science, analytics, government, politics, business, marketing, manufacturing, administration, etc.

Developing a software project supposes architecture first. To make it proper, you can use data flow diagram model in your current project.
The data flow diagram represents the Model of small traditional production enterprise that is made using Yourdon and Coad notation. It shows how the data is transfered through a process. According to the notation of Yourdon and Coad a process is represented by circles and data stores are drawn using parallel lines. This DFD was created using the ConceptDraw Data Flow Diagrams solution. Using this solution one can visualize data flow accordingly to the rules of two basic notations used for data flow modeling.
