Free and printable examples of process flow diagrams are available in the following list. Start learning process flow/flowcharts with the help of the diagram. A process flow diagram is used to show the separate steps of a process in sequential order. It is a common process analysis tool and one of the seven basic quality tools. Take a quick look at the first example of the diagram below for a better understanding!
In a process flow diagram, there are elements that may be included in a flowchart. These elements include a sequence of actions, materials or services entering or leaving the process (inputs and outputs), decisions that must be made, people who become involved, time involved at each step and/or process measurements. This kind of chart/diagram 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.
Constructing a flowchart gives everyone a clear understanding of the process and helps to identify non-value-added operations. It also facilitates teamwork and communication and keeps everyone on the same page.
