What is a flowchart?
Flowcharts are diagrams that show processes, systems, or computer algorithms. Flowcharts can use a variety of shapes to represent each step of the process, with connecting arrows to show the sequence. Because they make complex processes clear and easy to understand, you’ll find flowcharts in both technical and non-technical fields to document, study, plan, improve, or communicate information. They are one of the most common kinds of diagrams.
