Flow Chart Symbols
A flowchart is a common type of diagram (graphical models) describing algorithms or processes in which individual steps are depicted as blocks of various shapes interconnected by lines indicating the direction of the sequence.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area is a powerful software that will help you design the flowcharts for any business and technical processes, and software algorithms thanks to the predesigned flow chart symbols.
Example 1. Flow Chart Symbols — Flowchart Library Design Elements
Set of flowchart symbols such as: terminator, process, decision which indicates a decision points between two or more paths in a flowchart, symbol of delay. Major symbols includes symbol of data, document or multiple documents, subroutine, preparation for processing of documents. Also includes symbols: display, manual input, manual loop, loop limit, stored data,connectors and suming junctions, sort and merge operations, symbols of database and internal stor.
Flowcharts Solution offers 3 libraries with large collection of vector flow chart symbols:
- Flowchart Library,
- Flowcharts Rapid Draw Library,
- Swimlane Flowcharts Library
that you can use to create your flowcharts quick and easy.
Example 2. Flow Chart Symbols — Shapes
Simply drag the predesigned flow chart symbols from the libraries to your document, arrange them, highlight with color the elements or background, type the text and flowchart title to get the excellent result — your own flowchart in minutes.
Example 3. Flow Chart Symbols — Swimlanes
Use of predesigned symbols from the Flowcharts Solution is very fast and easy way of flowchart drawing, and the most important — you don’t need to be the painter for this.
Example 4. Flow Chart Symbols
Use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the Flowcharts solution. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them.
For example such as:
- Workflow Flowchart;
- Audit Flowchart;
- Accounting Flowchart;
- Sales Process Flowchart;
- HR Flowchart;
- Process Map;

EIGHT RELATED HOW TO's:
There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart.
This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.

When searching for a diagramming tool, we look for a powerful and reliable software that would be easy to use. To mention one, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM has all the necessary features to create cross-functional flowcharts (Swim Lanes) quick and effortlessly. You can draw swim lane diagrams in both vertical and horizontal ways.
This cross-functional flowchart displays a payroll process. It explains to each participant his role in the process depending on the category, represented with swimlanes. Using this flowchart, every employee can easily find out what he can expect in terms of salary. Generally a cross-functional diagram enables one to take a look at processes with a wider scope and with more precision than simple flowchart. Business process capturing using cross-functional flowcharts can be useful for stakeholders and managers to define clearly the staff's roles and responsibilities.
