Process graphic type

The SmartArt graphic here uses a Process-type layout that contains repeating shapes and one long, winding arrow to connect each step and show a directional flow. You could substitute any shapes for these if you wanted to use standard flowchart shapes to represent types of steps.

There are over 30 types of layouts for processes, and they often include connecting arrows to show direction or progression — be it for phases in the development of a plan or product; points in a timeline; or a depiction of how elements combine in any fashion to produce a result.
