Diagrammet a Process

Av Anna Warfield


Vi ger och får instruktioner hela tiden, vare sig det handlar om en webbplats, ett recept på middag eller vägbeskrivning till postkontoret. Vi går igenom olika processer också, liksom många naturfenomen. Livscykler, rutiner, fotosyntes, matsmältning - processer finns överallt! Instruktioner och processer är så mycket lättare att förstå när de åtföljs av bilder. När vi berättar om en process eller skapar ett sekvensdiagram, kan vi fokusera på diskreta steg, orsak och effekt och sekvens.

  • Well 70% of us want it passed...so it is a law anyway!
