A flowchart is a type of diagram that represents a work process, workflow or computer algorithm. It graphically represents a step-by-step approach used in analyzing, designing, or managing processes. Flowcharts help in visualizing complex processes or make explicit flaws or bottlenecks in a process. The steps in a flowchart are represented in various shapes such as rectangles, ovals, diamonds, circles, and are ordered by connecting 'arrows' to define the sequence or flow. There are different types of flowcharts and each type has its own set of boxes and notations. In addition, flowcharts generally flow from top to bottom and left to right.
