A flowchart without data.
Here’s a typical flowchart in Visio showing a business process. It’s great for that initial explanation of how things flow. But just because this is a diagram doesn’t mean you can’t show more. What if you want more details? What if you want to know more about each of these departments? How many sales orders are pending? How long does it take on average to produce an order? How many orders are waiting to be shipped? You can add these details to your diagram by linking data to it.
