  • Process,
  • People,
  • Materials,
  • Environment
  • Management,
all affecting the overall problem in one drawing for the further analysis. It is a well effective way to analyze the business problems you must identify and solve.

Types of Flowchart - Overview →

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.Types of Flowchart - Overview *

Workflow Diagram Template →

Starting producing workflow diagram from template you save time and avoid the blank page syndrome. At first, the workflow template is set of rules for a workflow.
