Have you any idea about how we represent an algorithm visually? Yes, BCA 1st sem students have represented algorithms visually through flowcharts. Algorithms and flowcharts are two different ways of presenting the process of solving a problem. Algorithms consist of a set of steps for solving a particular problem, while in flowcharts; those steps are usually displayed in shapes and process boxes with arrows. So flowcharts can be used for presenting algorithms. Flowcharts are easy-to-understand diagrams that visually present the process of solving problems. They are drawn according to steps described in the algorithms.
Flow charts are an important tool for the improvement of processes. Flow charts may also be used to gather information and data about a process as an aid to decision making or performance evaluation. By using the elements of a flowchart to create a visual map, we can often represent a process with greater clarity than text descriptions alone can provide. Though flow charts are relatively old design tools, they remain popular among computer programmers working on system analysis and design. In recent years, many software programs have been developed to assist business people in creating flow charts.
BCA 1st semester students made flowcharts on the basis of different algorithms in a way where visualizing each element makes it easy to identify inefficiencies and produce the best possible system. Developing or improving a business activity can be a challenging undertaking, whether you are setting up a website, designing a manufacturing operation or organizing your firm’s workforce. This tool’s simplicity makes communicating and documenting a process quick and clear, so that the process will more likely be understood and applied correctly and consistently.
