Definition: Process Flowchart
Process Flowchart, also known as the system flow diagram, shows the relation between major parts of a system. Process flowchart does not include minor parts or components of the system. In many organizations, process flow diagrams are used interchangeably as flow sheet.
Process flowcharts are used primarily in process engineering, chemical industry and heavy engineering industry where there is a requirement of depicting a relationship between major components. Process flow diagrams for single or multiple units differ in their structure and implementation.
