    Design, visualize, and improve your system

    A block diagram is a specialized flowchart typically used by engineers to provide a visualization of systems and their various interactions. Block diagrams are ideal for creating a high-level overview of a system to account for major system components, visualize inputs and outputs, and understand working relationships within your system. Our block diagram maker is the ideal diagramming solution to help engineers tackle complex system overviews when designing hardware or software, implementing process improvements, and more.

  2. Add symbols to your block diagram

    Use Lucidchart's drag-and-drop interface to add symbols and notation onto your canvas. As you build out your block diagram, connect shapes with arrows to indicate the flow of data.
