Flowchart Software

Showing some particular data in a way of a flowchart, which is known to be a type of diagram representing some algorithm, some workflow or some process in a way of showing the particular steps in a way of the boxes of the different kinds, as well as their order. The mentioned boxes are known to be connected with the help of the arrows, so such diagrammatic representation can illustrate a model, showing the solution to some given problem. Flowchart software widely used for visualizing processes, algorithms (usually software algorithms) and work flow dependences. It visuallize process flow directions, data exchange sequences and document flow organizations. Usually it use boxes and arrows to visualize events and sequential step by step logic.

The flowcharts are widely used in many different kinds of business, such as analyzing, documenting, managing or designing the processes or the programs in many different fields. Thus, the flowcharts can be used by the IT engineers, by other engineers and by the other specialists, such as teachers, illustrating the information for their pupils and students, business men using the flowcharts for their business documentation, such as presentations, business correspondence, site, etc.

The flowcharts are simply the formalized graphic representations of some logic sequence or work. It can be also used for describing the different processes, such as the manufacturing or sales one. They are known to be looking as the organization charts or similar to the organizational charts formalized structures — other kinds of charts, representing some kind of a flow: a flow of money, a flow of people, a flow of goods, etc.

The purpose of using a flowchart is to provide the other people, such as your clients or your employees, with a common “language”, so the information which is needed to be represented is unified for everyone involved in the process or general activity within some particular company, organization or institution. Using such “reference point” as a flowchart, is very convenient when dealing with a process or project, thinking about how to solve the given problems within such projects or processes, looking at the from a side.

Flowcharts are known to be the drawings people use the simple geometric symbols for creating them. There are also the arrows used, as it was already mentioned before, earlier in this article. The arrows are usually used for defining the relationships and the mentioned arrow are those connecting other graphical objects with each other. The described graphical objects can be ovals, for example, used in programming to represent the end or the beginning of each of the programs.

The represented by a rectangle process can be shown as the one within the flowchart happening after another process, such as the process of delivery goes after the process of packing the goods in transport logistics. A decision in this case can be represented in a way of a diamond. Any I/O process within the flowchart can be represented by a parallelogram and the Internet is usually illustrated by using a “cloud” shape. Flowchart software use numbers of flowchart symbols which typicaly well standartized in industry standards and some - have free notation. The ANSI/ISO standrds include symbols much far byond the classic flowchart software. Large sets of flowchart symbols collected in ConceptDraw Solution Park and organized to be used in ConceptDraw PRO flowchart software for document creation by users. These sets of symbols are ConceptDraw Solutions and can be downloaded on demand of flowchart drawing.

Flowcharts are commonly used in documenting and designing the simple programs or processes, it show technical processes Like other types of diagrams, flowcharts help visualize what is going on and so understand different processes, finding the bottlenecks, the flaws, as well as the other less-obvious features. There are many different types of flowcharts, each of which has its own repertoire of notational conventions and boxes. The types of boxes in a flowchart can be very different, but usually they are those representing the processing steps, known to be called as “activity”, denoted in a way of a rectangular box; and the decisions, denoted in a way of a shape of a diamond.

A flowchart is known to be called as "cross-functional" when the sheet is divided into different swim-lanes. The mentioned swim-lanes are used for describing the control of different organizational units and another symbol appearing in a "lane" is known to be within the control of the particular organizational unit. Such technique is commonly used for locating the responsibility to perform an action or for simply making the right decision in a way of showing the responsibility of each of the existing organizational units for different parts of one particular process, being described within the flowchart.

To depict the certain aspects of processes with the aid of flowchart is much simpler and to use the right software for creating the flowcharts is what is best to do when you do not have as much time to complete your task and if you want the final flowchart to look smart and simply professionally looking. Having such application, as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM can help you make it possible to create any needed flowchart, as well as charts and many more other drawings, within a short period of time having all the needed tools, which can be found within the mentioned application as well as within another product of CS Odessa — ConceptDraw STORE. Having the mentioned applications means having all chances to make a truly good looking diagram.

An example of the flowchart, which you can create having ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software can be a Kaoru Ishikawa diagram, which is defined as the flowchart, being one of the seven basic tools within the quality control. You can always make any other needed drawing within the quality control, such as Pareto chart, control chart, check sheet, scatter diagram, cause-and-effect diagram, and many more. Flowcharts widely used in accounting for describing payment procedure, tax culculation sequence, auditing steps, regulatory limits dependences etc.

Drakon-charts and Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams can be the alternative notation for any ongoing process flow, as well as other commonly used alternatives, including the flow chart, functional flowchart, process flowchart, process map, functional process chart, process chart, business process model, process flow diagram, work flow diagram, process model, business flow diagram and many different flowcharts, used in many different spheres of business activity.

Creating the underlying graph structure of a flowchart is known to be called as a “flow graph”, abstracting away the node types, as well as their contents and other information. Make your work of drawing the needed flowchart simpler by using the Flowcharts solution from ConceptDraw STORE application.

Data Flow Diagram →

There are many ways to define the flow of information within a system. Structured-systems analysis method often uses data flow diagrams to show data flow, data storages and data processing visualization. These diagrams are easy to develop and quite useful. Here is a dataflow diagram presenting an example of the manufacturing process flow. The oval process shapes represent a process that controls data within the current system. The process may produce data or make some action based on data. Data flows are represented by lines. They show the movement of information through the system. The direction of the data flow is depicted by the arrow. The external entities are shown by rectangles. They represent the external entities interacting with the system. The data store objects (unclosed rectangles) are used to show data bases participating in a process flow.Data Flow Diagram *

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them. The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. <br> Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy *
