Flowchart design. Flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons

Mavericks have always desired to stand apart and gorgeous design is the recipe for that. Any business graphic document will be more understandable if will use an expository color scheme for their parts. Flowchart design makes versatile presenting and explaining the process and gives a fresh view that distinguishes it from black and white flowcharts on a paper. The best design can be accomplished by starting from any of the suitable ConceptDraw examples. Pick one of them and begin to input proper text into each Flowchart shape. Apply fewer colors in the document and don't turn into a rainbow in your diagram, three or four will be enough, also note that the business process flowchart may not contain bright color hues. The next clue is to use identical colors for the same flowchart shape types.

A flowchart is a type of diagram that represents an algorithm, workflow or process, showing the steps as boxes of various kinds, and their order by connecting them with arrows. This diagrammatic:

  • Represents an algorithm or process
  • Illustrates a solution to a given problem
  • Represented Process operations
  • Used in analyzing
  • Used in designing
  • Used in documenting
  • Used in managing a process
  • Used in program in various fields

Flowcharts symbols visualize a process or algorithm of program as step/operation blocks of various shapes connected with arrowed lines showing the process flow direction. For instance, there are important process flow symbols to be used in chart to plan process, to review process or to setup process. Here the standard flowchart symbols library used as for process flow use case as for general flowchart porpose. This graphical library of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software.

How to do Flowchart Design Using Standard Flowchart Symbols

To create a flowchart in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, select a flowchart template from Flowcharts solution of the "Diagrams" area. This solution contains all the tools, samples and libraries with vector icons you'll need to build a specific diagram: standard process flow diagram, professional workflow diagram, process flowchart, functional flowchart, process map, process chart, functional process chart, business process model, process model, business flow diagram or any other. Major steps of professional flowchart design usually done with help of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software.

  • The flowchart should be started and ended with the terminator symbol.

  • Use the Decision symbol to ask a question.

    Flowchart Design - Decision

  • The Process symbol is used for activities or action steps.

    Flowchart Design - Process

  • The Delay symbol is used for indicates a delay in the process.
