The Facts: Flowcharts

5 Feb

A flowchart is a tool for examining processes, programmes and systems. They are commonly used in business or economic presentations to help the audience visualize what the presentation is about. To make a flowchart, there are four steps. You identify the process or system, you highlight the various stages involved in the process/system, you identify any decisions to be made and you construct the flowchart. In the below example, the start of the flowchart is denoted by a terminal, there is then a decision to be made which is denoted by the triangle.



There are many benefits to using a flowchart. Efficiency increases, technical processes are described to untrained users and presenters can provide large amounts of information


Flowcharts are useful but they can be funny too!
