A flow diagram is a diagram representing some kind of flow. The most known is the flowchart, but there are more kind of flow diagrams.

General type of diagrams[edit]

Activity diagram[edit]

An activity diagram is a diagram that shows activities and actions to describe workflows. It is in fact a specific type of flowchart, which shows a sequence of activities. See Category:Activity diagrams

Flow chart[edit]

The flowchart represents an algorithm, a process, or the step-by-step solution of a problem. See Category:Flow diagrams

Flow maps[edit]

Flow maps show the movement of objects from one location to another. See Category:Flow maps

Engineering diagrams[edit]

Process flow diagrams[edit]

A process flow diagram (PFD) is a diagram commonly used in chemical and process engineering to indicate the general flow of plant processes and equipment. See Category:Process flow diagrams

Systems engineering diagrams[edit]

Function Block Diagram[edit]

A Function Block Diagram (FBD) is a diagram, that describes a function between input variables and output variables. A function is described as a set of elementary blocks. Input and output variables are connected to blocks by connection lines. See Category:Function block diagrams

Functional Flow Block Diagrams[edit]

Functional Flow Block Diagrams (FFBD) are multi-tier, time-sequenced, step-by-step flow diagram of the system’s functional flow, see Category:Functional flow block diagrams

IDEF0[edit]

IDEF0 is an Integration Definition for function Modeling, and is a common modeling technique for the analysis, development, re-engineering, and integration of information systems; business processes information modelling. See Category:IDEF0

Software engineering diagrams[edit]

Business Process Modeling Notation[edit]

Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is a standardized graphical notation for drawing business processes in a workflow. See Category:Business Process Modeling Notation

Data flow diagram[edit]

A data flow diagram is a graphical representation of the flow of data through an information system. See Category:Data flow diagrams

Nassi-Shneiderman diagram[edit]

Nassi-Shneiderman diagram, see Category:Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams

Process-data diagram[edit]

A process-data diagram is a diagram that describes processes and data that act as output of these processes. See Category:Process-data diagram

UML Activity diagrams[edit]

An activity diagram in UML represents the business and operational step-by-step workflows of components in a system. An activity diagram shows the overall flow of control. See Category:UML Activity diagrams
