Simple Flowchart Guide
First of all, is there a flow in drawing a flowchart itself? The answer is yes. In software engineering, we may hear that: everything is object. The same is to the flowchart: everything is flow. Is there a flow in eating? Seen from the actions of eating, the flow is: hold chopsticks, pick up food with chopsticks, send the food into mouth, chew and swallow.
Although there are many symbols that can be used in flowcharts to represent different kinds of steps, accurate flowcharts can be created using very few (e.g. Process, Decision, Start, delay, cloud).
For this part, many students may ask: please introduce the tools for drawing a flowchart!
I am in favor of tools and believe in "better tools make for good work". Tools themselves are good teachers who can teach us, besides skills, some theories and ideas, which are important parts of the "tools". For new learners, the pen and paper are always the best tools for starting.
Edraw flowchart software can help to quickly create new flowcharts, workflow, NS Diagram, BPMN Diagram, Cross-functional flowcharts, data flow diagrams and highlight flowcharts. Try it free.
