Business Process Workflow Diagrams

Any workflow is known to be consisting of some repeatable as well as an orchestrated pattern. This pattern is the one of a business activity that is enabled by the systematic organization of resources into some definite processes. The las-mentioned processes can transform the materials, provide different services or some particular process information.

Any workflow can be depicted as a sequence of different operations. Such operations may be declared as work of a group or a person, an organization of staff, or some more, either complex or simple, mechanisms.

Any workflow may be also considered as a view or some representation of a real work. The flow that is described in a way of an illustration, may refer to some particular document, product or service. Any of such documents, products or services may be transferred from one step to another.

Sometimes the workflows may be viewed as one fundamental building block. Such block may be combined with other parts of organization's structure. To represent the workflows, the flowcharts can be created which are known to be a type of diagram that represents some particular algorithm, process or workflow.

By showing the steps in a way of the boxes of different kinds which are all connected by the arrows, this diagrammatic representation may be used as a convenient tool for illustrating some particular solution models to the given problems. Being used in designing, analyzing, managing the processes, the programs or/and documenting in different fields of business activity, flowcharts can be created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software within only a few minutes.

The Workflow Diagrams solution was developed for a purpose of extending the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with the pre-made examples and templates of the workflow diagrams as well as a library full of vector stencils for making the needed drawings at an ease.

Representing the documents, transferring of data and the tasks during the performance of the work process has become much simpler for many specialists such as university professors, PhDs, postgraduates, postdocs, scientists, researchers, IT specialists, computer engineers, network and telecommunication engineers, software engineers, technical writers, system administrators, technical support specialists, IT managers, system architects and many other professions.
