If you pick up any college business textbook and page through it quickly you will see lots of flowcharts, often in Color which use different shapes to signify each step of the process along the way. In fact, you will often notice that such illustrations and graphics artwork come in 3-D, along with the multiple colors.
When writing technical papers, manuals, e-books, or research papers we often try to explain procedures, processes, and the proper way to make decisions based on that data or the task at hand. In explaining these processes it makes sense to use flowcharts, something that is very popular with academia, and business management gurus.
The author and team should consider whether it may be beneficial to cover some of the tasks in multiple separate procedures - there are no hard and fast rules. The best approach is to assure a clear and easy understanding of the process. All that can be said is that a flow chart generally is easier to use if it less complex. Also, if a flow chart focuses on one process or functional area it provides easier future change and control.
There is a reason for this, as it has been found by psychologists, researchers, and neurologists that such graphics are much easier to remember when they are done this way. This means that the human reading the text book, manual, or technical paper will indeed remember the step-by-step process long after he has reviewed the material.
