"Process Decision Program Chart (PDPC).
A useful way of planning is to break down tasks into a hierarchy, using a tree diagram. The PDPC extends the tree diagram a couple of levels to identify risks and countermeasures for the bottom level tasks. Different shaped boxes are used to highlight risks and identify possible countermeasures (often shown as 'clouds' to indicate their uncertain nature). The PDPC is similar to the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) in that both identify risks, consequences of failure, and contingency actions; the FMEA also rates relative risk levels for each potential failure point." [Seven Management and Planning Tools. Wikipedia]
The Risk diagram (process decision program chart, PDPC) determines the risks when corrective action is not performed correctly. Also, it helps develop descriptions for preventive actions at the level of execution.
The Risk diagram (PDPC) template for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is included in the solution "Seven Management and Planning Tools" from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

"Flow Charts ...
Pictures, symbols or text coupled with lines, arrows on lines show direction of flow. Enables modelling of processes; problems/ opportunities and decision points etc. Develops a common understanding of a process by those involved. No particular standardisation of symbology, so communication to a different audience may require considerable time and explanation." [ research/ dstools/ tqm-tools/ ]

"An activity in Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a major task that must take place in order to fulfill an operation contract. Activities can be represented in activity diagrams.
An activity can represent:
(1) The invocation of an operation.
(2) A step in a business process.
(3) An entire business process.
Activities can be decomposed into subactivities, until at the bottom we find atomic actions.
The underlying conception of an activity has changed between UML 1.5 and UML 2.0. In UML 2.0 an activity is no longer based on the state-chart rather it is based on a Petri net like coordination mechanism. There the activity represents user-defined behavior coordinating actions. Actions in turn are pre-defined (UML offers a series of actions for this)." [Activity (UML). Wikipedia]
