Flow Charts map out a process using a series of connected symbols, which makes the process easy to understand and aids in its communication with other people. Flow Charts are useful for explaining how a complex and/or abstract procedure, system, concept, or algorithm works.
Have you ever had to teach someone how to do a new task, or use a new process? If so, you’ll know how easy it is for them to misunderstand instructions, or even forget them, along the way. This is why flow charts are so useful! A well-designed flow chart prevents miscommunication and ensures that everyone involved knows exactly what to do.
A flow chart is also known as Flow Diagram, Flow Process Chart, Process Chart, Process Map, Process Model, Work Flow Diagram. This type of diagram is used to show the sequential steps of a process.
