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.
The first task in developing a procedure is to prepare a flowchart of the current practice. This is done with the active contribution of staff who do the task or know most about the task. The procedure author/facilitator leads the group and prepares a rough flowchart of the current process. The flowchart emerging in the meeting should be rich in detail through the contributions of all participants, but will also be a mess -- marked up with deletions, changes, and notes added as a result of the groups inputs. Seldom can this be done in one meeting unless the process is simple. All participants should bring any work instructions and check sheets that they use or have concerning the process to the meeting for reference and use in the discussion and to be included in the project file for future reference.
WizFlow sets the standard for Flow Diagram Drawing Software. WizFlow lets you define shape styles using over one hundred predefined shapes and arrowheads. You can save your own styles in diagram templates if you prefer your own methods. WizFlow comes with complete flowcharting templates to get you started. WizFlow can create flowcharts and similar diagrams with minimal effort on your part. WizFlow connects lines to figures and attaches labels to lines while you draw your diagram and remembers these relationships and adjusts automatically when you move objects around. Wizflow can also adjust the size of a shape when you add text to it.
