Technical Flow Chart

Flow chart is a diagrammatic representation of an algorithm and essential part of planning the system. Flow charts are widely used in technical analysis and programming for easy writing programs and explaining them to others. So, one of the most popular type of flow charts is Technical Flow Chart.

Technical flow chart is constructed from the set of commonly used elements. Different elements are used for different states in flow chart.

The list of technical flow chart elements includes:

  • rectangle - is used for representing a process,
  • rounded box - is used to represent start and end of flow chart,
  • diamond - is used to represent a decision, the operation which has two alternatives - true or false,
  • parallelogram - is used for input/output operations,
  • circle - is used to join a flowchart with another flow.

All these elements are connected by arrows in the needed order on the technical flow diagram.

Benefits of Technical Flow Chart

The Technical Flow Chart has a wide set of benefits:

  • gives a clear documentation of a process;
  • allows to define and offers common understanding of processes;
  • helps to build a process visual representation for analysis, discussion, and communication;
  • allows to identify the scope of the process;
  • allows to trace and analyze the process steps;
  • helps to standardize and find areas for monitoring, improvement and increased efficiency in a process;
  • allows to find and detach the steps of the process that are not essential;
  • helps in understanding the logic of complex problems;
  • offers a guidance for managers overseeing operations;
  • facilitates communication between programmers and business people;
  • helps programmers to write the programs of any complexity and on the any high level language;
  • helps in debugging process and provides efficient program maintenance;
  • helps to understand and explain to other people the logic of the complex problems and their solution;
  • assists to improve teamwork effectiveness.

Technical Flow Chart Software

Technical Flow Chart can be drawn by pencil on the paper, but it will be easier to use for designing a special software. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park will be useful for this goal.

Flowcharts Solution provides variety of flow chart and flow chart business samples, Flowchart and Flowcharts Rapid Draw libraries with set of design elements for quick and easy designing various Flow Charts, including of course such type as a Technical Flow Chart.

One of the fastest way of drawing is to use the predesigned flow chart template as the basis. Basic Flowchart template is included in Flowcharts Solution.

A waterfall model describes software development process as a sequence of phases that flow downwards. SSADM is one of the implementations of waterfall method. It’s easier to learn about structured systems analysis and design method (SSADM) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM because this software has appropriate tools for creating data flow diagrams. You can use all the three main techniques of SSADM method with special tools and predesigned templates. This data flow diagram illustrates the Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method. This method method considers analysis, projecting and documenting of information systems. Data flow models are the most important elements of SSADM and data flow diagrams are usually used for their description. It includes the analysis and description of a system as well as visualization of possible issues.Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method

Pyramid Diagram →

When thinking about the process of decision making, it's easy to imagine it as a pyramid. We will look at a three level pyramid model as an example. Operational decisions are first that come to mind, and it's the first level. Tactical and strategic decisions are the second and the third levels. Pyramid (triangle) diagrams are used to show some hierarchical data. Because to the pyramid form of diagram, each diagram slice has a different width. The width of each segment depends on its hierarchical level. The current image illustrates the model of information system types. Most graphically the model can be represented as a three level pyramid. The first level shows a system of transaction processing It is concentrated on operational tasks. The second level is devoted to tactical solutions of the information system management. And at least, the third level addresses strategy and represents the executive information system. This three level pyramid sample is supplied with the ConceptDraw Pyramid Diagrams solution from Marketing area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.Pyramid Diagram *

Flow chart Example. Warehouse Flowchart →

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.Warehouse Flowchart
