What is a Flowchart

Student Assignment


Published on Sep 27, 2022

A flowchart is nothing more than a graphical representation of the data or algorithm to facilitate a better understanding of the code. It provides step-by-step instructions for solving a problem, algorithm, or process. This is a pictorial representation of steps that is preferred by beginners to understand algorithms in computer science, thereby contributing to troubleshooting. Flowcharts are pictures of boxes that show how processes flow sequentially. Since a flowchart is a pictorial representation of a process or algorithm, it’s easy to interpret and understand the process. In order to draw a flowchart, certain rules must be followed. These rules are followed by all professionals and widely accepted across countries.

The use of flowcharts

Flowcharts can be used in the following ways:
  • A pictorial representation of an algorithm enhances the readability of the program.
  • Flowcharts can be used to simplify the representation of complex programs.
  • Members of the team can use this knowledge to collect data, detect problems, develop software, etc.
  • In order to design a new process or add additional features, a flowchart is an essential step.
  • By drawing flowcharts and sharing them with others, communication becomes easier.

An example of a flowchart is shown below
