Process Flow Chart Symbol

Process Flow Charts are very popular and widely used in chemical and process engineering for representation a general flow of plant processes and equipment. If you need often draw them, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software will be useful for you.

The mostly used set of process flow chart symbols includes the following:

  • Rectangle (box) - this process flow chart symbol is used for representing an event that is controlled within a process;
  • Rounded rectangle - is used for representing an event that occurs automatically;
  • Circle - is used to represent a point of connection a flowchart with another process;
  • Diamond - is used to represent a decision point in the process.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with tools of Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park offers 2 libraries of commonly used process flow chart symbols:

  • Flowchart library
  • Flowchart Rapid Draw library

Each process flow chart symbol included to these libraries is professionally designed, well thought-out and ready-to-use vector object.

How to Draw an Organizational Chart →

If your company is in chaos in clutter and no one understands their rights and responsibilities, maybe it's time to change that. One of the ways to put the company in order is to draw an organization chart that would reflect the structure and show the relationships among departments and positions. This is a very useful and easy to understand scheme. This is example of the one of the most typical kind of organizational chart. It depicts an organizational structure of the hierarchical type. Its construction is similarv to pyramid. The single main position on the top - in this case, the mayor's position followed by sub-levels of authority in his command. Each position in the pyramid reports only to his supervisor, and takes only a report of direct subordinates. Such scheme limits the number of communications. This organizational structure is effectively used in public organizations. Also it is suitable for any organization with the need for multiple levels of middle managers. The ability to create organizational charts of different types is supplied with ConceptDraw Ogrcharts solutions.How to Draw an Organization Chart *

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 *

If you ever tried programming, you could face a lot of problems as a beginner. To help yourself, create a flowchart to follow an algorithm logic. Flowchart represents a program as a sequence of steps depicted in special symbols for each type of action. This image of the interactive diagram made in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM applying the Live Objects technology. The diagram shows the effect of Selection Sort algorithm. The left part of the chart is the input area. The diagram in the central part of the drawing is a flow chart showing of the selection sort algorithm. The flowchart includes basic flowchart symbols, that represent various stages of algorithm. The flowchart symbols are connected with arrows ended lines, that depict the direction of the process flow. On the right side — the result is displayed.Flowchart *

Structured-systems analysis and design method uses data flow diagrams to represent the process of data flowing through a system. Talking about this might be useless without a proper example of DFD for online store (Data Flow Diagram). This DFD example shows all the distinctness that a diagram can bring into a scattered data structure. Data flow diagrams are used to show how data is processed within some business processes. Making DFD is a common practice for business process modeling and analysis. This diagram represents the online store business flow. It describes inputs and outputs within online selling process and depicts the interactions between its participants. This DF diagram can be used by system analysts to create an overview of a business, to study and discover its inherent strengths and weak points.Example of DFD for Online Store
