Basic Standards of Flowcharts
Flowcharts represent the functionalities or proposed use of flowchart symbols of a process in sequential steps. Flowcharts remain the perfect diagrams for a visual representation of the business processes. For example, if there is a requirement to present the flow of a customized ordering process via several divisions within your organization, we can utilize a flowchart. This blog presents a visual representation of basic flowchart symbols and their intended utility in describing the structure of a developed website either product or service, as well as their relationship in promoting online instructional projects. A standard flowchart from traditional Computer Science textbooks may have the following sets of symbols: Start and And, Process, Decision, Document and Sub Process.
Flowcharts also include other symbols such as connectors denoted by circles, to follow converging paths in the flowchart. Circles with more than an arrow arriving into them but only one moving out. Some flowcharts may possess an arrow pointing to another arrow instead. These arrows are useful to represent an iterative process or a loop. For instance, a loop has a connector where control first enters, processing steps, a conditional with an arrow exiting in the loop, and one going back to the connector. Off-page connectors are often used to imply a link to part of a process continued on another sheet or screen.
