Flow charts show the steps or stages of a process. They show the sequence
of operations and the operations performed. You must be able to interpret
and translate various symbols to create a chart that is easy to visualize and
The language of flow charts is symbols. These symbols represent decision
points, devices, and functions. The symbols are uniform in meaning and
always have the same meaning regardless of where they appear. Symbols
drawn over themselves represent multiples or sequential steps. The multiple
symbols are drawn from front to back. Use a flow chart template to
construct a flow chart.
