Planning the Task: Flowcharts


Flowcharts are used to show the correct sequence of events of a particular operation. This may be used in business, commerce or in the world of computer programming.
These flowchart symbols have been taken from the British Standards BS4058: 1973 (Specification for processing flow chart symbols, rules and conventions).

Flowlines must be added in between the boxes and these lines should have arrows on them to show the direction of flow of instructions.

Press on the following links to find out how all of the above shapes may be correctly used to make a complete flowchart.

Process shapes
A Start shapes
A Decision shape
A Modification shape
