Flowchart design. Flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons

A flowchart is a type of diagram that represents an algorithm, workflow or process, showing the steps as boxes of various kinds - flowchart symbols, and their order by connecting them with arrows.
Mavericks have always desired to stand apart and gorgeous design is the recipe for that. Any business graphic document will be more understandable if will use an expository color scheme for their parts. Flowchart design makes versatile presenting and explaining of the process and gives a fresh view that distinguishes it from black and white flowcharts on a paper. Workflow diagram or process flow diagrams become more understandable to ordinary people when it use minimum symbols and special signs.
The best design can be accomplished by starting from any of the suitable Conceptdraw examples. Pick one of them and begin to input proper text into each Flowchart symbols and shapes. Apply less colors in the document and don't turn into rainbow your diagram, three or four will be enough, also note that business process flowchart may not contain bright color hues. The next clue is to use identical colors for same flowchart shape types.

"The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. ...
Four essential elements of the scientific method are iterations, recursions, interleavings, or orderings of the following:
(1) Characterizations (observations, definitions, and measurements of the subject of inquiry).
(2) Hypotheses (theoretical, hypothetical explanations of observations and measurements of the subject).
(3) Predictions (reasoning including logical deduction from the hypothesis or theory).
(4) Experiments (tests of all of the above)...
A linearized, pragmatic scheme of the four points above is sometimes offered as a guideline for proceeding:
(1) Define a question.
(2) Gather information and resources (observe).
(3) Form an explanatory hypothesis.
(4) Test the hypothesis by performing an experiment and collecting data in a reproducible manner.
(5) Analyze the data.
(6) Interpret the data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for new hypothesis.
(7) Publish results.
(8) Retest (frequently done by other scientists).
The iterative cycle inherent in this step-by-step method goes from point 3 to 6 back to 3 again." [Scientific method. Wikipedia]
