Flow Chart Report about Production Cycle
A flowchart is an analytical technique used to describe some aspects of an information system in a clear, logical, and brief manner. In other words, it is a way that records how business processes are performing and analyze paths of what developments might be applied on the performed processes and the flowed documents.
