Website wireframe is incredibly useful prototyping tool, it helps in website creating and allows to visualize the end result long before the site will be ready. So wire frame allows to avoid mistakes, saves a lot of time and is an important starting point for complex project.
A wireframe is a design representation made with low accuracy. This is a scheme, which should clearly answer to three questions following questions about the future page: what content, where to place it and how to interact. Wireframe reflects the main group of content, shows the information structure and visualizes the basic the interaction between the interface and the user. Although wireframes seem to look like meaningless set of gray blocks, it's not exactly like that. It should be seen as a skeleton of your design and you should remember that wireframes should depict every important detail of the final product.
Representation is a key term, which will help you find the necessary balance between required precision and speed. Do not show too much detail, but on the other hand, you need to create an exact image of the final design of the product, so be careful not to miss any important details. A good wireframe is crucial for the entire team working on the project: developers, graphic designers, copywriters, project managers.
Wireframe can be compared to the map of a city. Each street is represented on the map, but its visual image is quite simplified. You can sense the architecture of the city, if you look at the map, but you can’t perceive its beauty.
Wireframes should be made quickly and you should spend almost all the time left communicating and discussing with the team. The average time to create a wireframe should be really limited. Visualization should be created according to the aesthetics rules but this is vastly simplified. You probably won’t use any other colors than black, gray and white.
Wireframes are commonly used as documentation for the project. Because of their static and fixed manner of displaying interfaces, they need to be suitably described (from a brief explanation up to a complex of technical documentation, if necessary).

There are many tools to manage a process or to illustrate an algorithm or a workflow. Flowcharting is one of those tools. However, it may be difficult to show complex processes that require multiple attributes or several people in a simple flowchart, so a cross-functional flowchart would be a solution for that situation. To create such flowchart, group processes and steps to labeled rows or columns, and divide those groups with horizontal or vertical parallel lines. It is worth mentioning that there are different types of cross-functional flowcharts, like opportunity or deployment flowchart.
This diagram shows a cross-functional flowchart that was made for a trading process. It contains 14 processes, distributed through 5 lines depicting the participants who interact with the process. Also there are connectors that show the data flow of information between processes. The cross-functional flowchart displays a detailed model of the trading process, as well as all participants in the process and how they interact with each other. The lines in the flowchart indicates the position, department and role of the trading process participants.
