Importance of Flow chart:

Flow chart is defined as a pictorial representation of an Algorithm (or) program.
This contains the flow of a program by which the user can understand effectively and easily.
It has a basic flow in which it contains the functionality of a product that how it should be functioned and how the software should behave in order to meet its goal.
The flow chart contains sequence of steps by which the user can understand the functionality if the software.

The below listed are some important benefits of a flowchart:


1. Visual Clarity

One of the biggest benefits of a flowchart is the tool's ability to visualize multiple progresses and their sequence into a single document. Stakeholders throughout an organization can easily understand the workflow while finding out which step is unnecessary and which progress should be improved.

2. Instant Communication

Teams can use flow charts to replace meetings. Simply clarifying progresses offers an easy, visual method to help team members instantly understand what they should do step by step.

3. Effective Coordination

For project managers and resource schedulers, the benefits of a flowchart include the ability to sequence events and reduce the potential for overburdening team members. Eliminating the unnecessary steps help to save time and resources.

4. Efficiency Increase

Efficiency increases are a significant benefit of flowcharts. The flowchart lists each step necessary to perform a process. The flowchart helps a designer remove unnecessary steps in a process, as well as errors. The flowchart should only include the steps that are requirements to reach the endpoint of the process.

5. Effective Analysis

With the help of flowchart, problem can be analysed in more effective way. It specifically shows what type of action each step in a process requires. Generally, a rectangle with rounded edges defines the beginning or end of the process, a diamond shape shows the point at which a decision is required, and a square block shows an action taken during the process. A flowchart may also include symbols that show the type of media in which data is stored, such as a rectangle with a curved bottom to show a paper document or a cylinder to symbolize a computer hard drive.

6. Problem Solving

Flowcharts break a problem up into easily definable parts. The defined process displayed by the flowchart demonstrates the method of solving a complex problem. A flowchart reduces the chance that a necessary step for solving a problem will be left out because it appears obvious. In this way, it reduces cost and wastage of time.

The simplest answer to this question can be just explained in just five points of benefits.  And doesn?t need any explanation for them as they already state what their name means They are given as follows:-

Benefit 1: Improved Communication. Flowchart software empowers entire  teams to collaborate as they create, edit, and analyze flowcharts.

Benefit 2: Visual Clarity.

Benefit 3: Effective Analysis.

Benefit 4: Problem Solving.

Benefit 5: Documentation.

A flowchart is used to diagramatically represent the many steps associated with a particular business scenario and/or a business solution in order to facilitate the understanding of a complex system. A flow chart can be understood by the Clients/Stakeholders and the Development and Testing Team alike. The importance of a flow chart is that it encapsulates the functionality of a given system and represents it diagrammatically such that it's easy to understand. The level of detail to be shown will depend on the audience. For instance, the Stakeholders may not need an understanding of the inner working of the system to be developed, however the development team might need a full depth understanding of the same in order to develop the system. The intricacy of the flow diagram needed in this case would be different, the development team would need detailed flow diagram, whereas the Stakeholders would need a less detailed flow diagram pertaining to their needs.

Flow charts are pictorial representations of a Program/Software .It is used by professionals in various fields as it helps to visualize the process .It is used to depict both Simple as well as Complex statements into a Chart as it divides the the process for easier understanding.Flow charts can be used in any field to understand the process.

Flowcharts, as the name describes, are the graphical representation of the step by step procedure of components in a process. They clearly describe what is happening in any given point at any given time. Which drastically decreases the probability of errors. They also help the people easily understand the the Start point, the Process and the End point of the project.

Flow Chart:
Flow chart is the pictorial representation of the process.
Flow chart starts from left to right or top bottom.
flow chart describe the process flow.
flow chart has different symbols and arrows.
Flow charts help in minimising the documentation,grab the attention and easily understable.
Flow chart help in simplify the complex process.
Error free documentation is prepared with the help of flow chart.
It also helps in explaining the complex process very easily.

Flow charts are an important tool, By providing a graphical representation, they help project teams to identify the different elements of a process and understand the interrelationships among the various steps.

Flowcharts are better way of communicating the logic of a system to all concerned or involved

Flow charts may also be used to gather information and data about a process as an aid to decision making or performance evaluation.

A flowchart is a graphical representation of a process or a system that details all the sequence of events required to create an output. This helps one understand the relationship between a particular event and its impacts on a given outcome. It is also commonly known as a flow diagram. Though widely used in the field of software development, flowcharts are also now extensively used by business architects to understand complex business processes and provide the best possible solution

?   Standardizing a process: By documenting a process, a business can standardize it so that it?s always performed in the same, most optimal way, reducing confusion and inefficiency.

?   Training employees: The mapping also provides a standard training document for anyone to learn the process.

?   Improving a process: Once an existing process is mapped, it can be analyzed for bottlenecks and inefficiencies. Business Process Modeling can be used to model a better process.

?   Communication: Mapping provides visualization that may be much easier to understand than narrative text would be. This can help for interpretation and collaboration, either with an internal team or external team or consultants

In any case, the flow chart shows the overall structure of the process or system, traces the flow of information and work through it, and highlights key processing and decision points. Flow charts are an important tool for the improvement of processes.

A flowchart is a type of diagram that represents the workflow, showing the step by step process (order) involved in the project by connecting with arrows. This representation illustrates a solution model to a given problem and the IT team or Devops team can easily understand the flow of process and this helps in writing the program in a effective manner

By providing a graphical representation, they help project teams to identify the different elements of a process and understand the interrelationships among the various steps. The main use of  picture of the separate steps of a process in sequential order. It is a generic tool that can be adapted for a wide variety of purposes, and can be used to describe various processes, such as a manufacturing process, an administrative or service process, or a project plan.

A flow chart helps to visualize the types of processes by illustrating the sequence of activities from start to end. Each diagram includes actions, responsible actors for executing these actions, input and output for each step.
