Showing Hierarchies with Block Diagram Shapes

In a block diagram, you can graphically represent many types of systems. The components of the system are represented by blocks, which are often labeled, as shown in Figure 11-2. You can add arrows to show the direction in which a process flows or to depict system inputs and outputs. Most people create block diagrams with the goal of including them within a presentation, report, Web site, or other document. Manufacturers of equipment, such as electronic and computer equipment, often create block diagrams and add links from each component to another page that describes the component in detail.
