Process Flowchart Symbols
The Process Flowchart or Process Flowchart Diagram (PFD) is a visual representation relations between major parts of the system, the steps in a process, and even connections between various systems. For drawing Process Flowcharts are used a lot of generally excepted process flowchart symbols - these are special objects used to depict the actions and process steps, and also lines and arrows to connect the objects to display the sequence of these steps and relationships between them.
Creation of Process Flowcharts is an important tool for documenting processes on the stages of planning and also implementation a project, they effectively display how the process functions now or must to function. Thanks to this type of diagrams you have excellent possibility to represent in details the complex processes using the commonly used process flowchart symbols. The Process Flowcharts let to make the processes clearly understandable for all with a goal of processes improvement, uncovering and elimination problems, reduction costs and increasing productivity, to facilitate the communication, lighten and improve the teamwork.

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.
