Advantages and Disadvantages of Flowchart

Advantages Of Using FLOWCHARTS:
• Communication: Flowcharts are better way of communicating the logic of a system to all concerned or involved.
• Effective analysis: With the help of flowchart, problem can be analysed in more effective way therefore reducing cost and wastage of time.
• Proper documentation: Program flowcharts serve as a good program documentation, which is needed for various purposes, making things more efficient.
• Efficient Coding: The flowcharts act as a guide or blueprint during the systems analysis and program development phase.
• Proper Debugging: The flowchart helps in debugging process.
• Efficient Program Maintenance: The maintenance of operating program becomes easy with the help of flowchart. It helps the programmer to put efforts more efficiently on that part

Disadvantages Of Using FLOWCHARTS:
• Complex logic: Sometimes, the program logic is quite complicated. In that case, flowchart becomes complex and clumsy. This will become a pain for the user, resulting in a waste of time and money trying to correct the problem
• Alterations and Modifications: If alterations are required the flowchart may require re-drawing completely. This will usually waste valuable time.
• Reproduction: As the flowchart symbols cannot be typed, reproduction of flowchart becomes a problem.

    the advantages are very well expressed. But the disadvantages just do not hold the road! with all the tools out there to make flow charts Reproduction and Modifications are easy to do. And for complex algorithms…. that is exactly when a flow chart becomes useful!
