2 2FlowchartsKu-Yaw Chang Flowcharts Special shapes to represent different types of actions or steps in a process Lines and arrows to show the sequence of the steps, and the relationships among them Lines and arrows to show the sequence of the steps, and the relationships among them Illustrate the steps in a process. Quickly help identify bottlenecks or inefficiencies where the process can be streamlined or improved Quickly help identify bottlenecks or inefficiencies where the process can be streamlined or improved

3 3FlowchartsKu-Yaw Chang Shapes and Symbols Start/End The terminator symbol marks the starting or ending point of the system. It usually contains the word "Start" or "End.“ The terminator symbol marks the starting or ending point of the system. It usually contains the word "Start" or "End.“ Action or Process A box can represent a single step ("add two cups of flour"), or and entire sub-process ("make bread") within a larger process.
