How to Create a Process Flowchart
Industrial plants in the chemical and process engineering fields have a multitude of major working parts and components. Process flow charts are used to depict the relationship between all of these parts. They are often used by professionals in the fields mentioned to illustrate a process that takes place in the plants. The symbols and notation used in process flow charts are often more complex than that of a regular flowchart.
