APPENDIX A
PROCESS CHARTS
A.1
Introduction.  A process chart is a graphical
representation of a logical chain of steps which have to be
executed in a certain order.  Any process can consist of only
three categories of structures:  iteration, selection, and
sequence.  However, for clarity, informational structures are
included in the process charts presented in this handbook.
A.2
Informational Structure.  This handbook uses two types
of informational structures:  terminal and report.  The two
structures are described in the following paragraphs.
A.2.1
Terminal Structure.  The terminal structure, shown in
Figure A-1, marks the beginning and end of a process chart.  As
terminal structures perform the same role on all process charts,
they do not have structure numbers and are not explained in the
descriptive text.
Start. A process chart begins with a
terminal structure represented by the
Start
word Start inside a circle. Control flows
along the arrow connecting the terminal
structure to the next structure.
Stop. A process chart ends with a
terminal structure represented by the
Stop
word Stop inside a circle. Control returns
to the previous process chart.

A.2.2
Report Structure.  The report structure,  shown in
Figure A-2, provides feedback or information pertinent to
executing a procedure.
