What is a flowchart?
A flowchart is a diagram that shows the steps in a process. Flowcharts are often used for training, documenting and planning. They can also be useful for decision making. They often use arrows to illustrate how one step leads to another.
Use a flowchart when you want to explain the steps in a process with someone else – such as someone that you’re training in for a job. They’re useful in presentations and reports, too.
Flowcharts are related to process charts. Process charts differ because they use a set of specific symbols to indicate the different steps in a process.
