What are the Rules, Advantages and Disadvantages of a Flowchart?
Here we understand Rules to Draw a flowchart, and what are the Advantages and Disadvantages of a Flowchart.
Rules to Draw a Flowchart:
- Think about the problem and identify the input, desired output and the possible constraints.
- Do not give details in a flowchart.
- Use simple language.
- Be consistent in using variable names.
- The sequence of drawing a flowchart should be from left to right and top to bottom.
- Avoid intersection of Flow Lines by using Connectors.
- If the flowchart exceeds one page, use Connectors.
Advantages of a Flowchart:
- It is easy to understand a graphical representation of a process rather than reading the entire process.
- It is a convenient aid for writing computer instructions.
- It becomes easier to review the steps and make corrections, if necessary.
- Comparison of different methods of solving a problem becomes very easy.
- Drawing a flowchart for large and complex problems is time-consuming and boring.
- Since a flowchart consists of symbols, any changes or modifications in the program will need a new flowchart to be drawn.
- There are no set standards specifying the details of the data that should be shown in a flowchart. Hence flowcharts for a given problem may have the same logic but may vary in terms of data shown.
