What is a Flowchart?

A flowchart is a visual representation of steps and the order in which they are performed. It maps out the different processes that need to happen for successful completion of an event or process. The different processes are represented by rectangles, each with a letter or number inside. The lines connecting the rectangles show how one step influences another.

Flowcharts have been around since the early 1900s, but they were extremely popular in the 1970s and 1980s with the rise of personal computers and electronic data management. They are still widely used today in business and software development. Flowcharts are not just used to show what steps are involved in a process, but also how these different steps interact with other processes or parts of the system.

In order to make a flowchart you need to do first brainstorming, then strategically organize it on paper, and then implement it with a software like Zen Flowchart with the use of provided templates and examples. That’s the simplest process and quicker as well.
