Hi John,

Thank you for your reaction. I agree with your ideas. One question. You

Why the if? Why written IF? What if we intend to improve the process but
still draw a 'standard' functional chart? (I agree with you, but more
often than not, my client (the manager who is going to pay the bill), who
says he wants to improve their processes, start out by drawing the charts.
Sometimes i said: "don't bother", but this seemes to disturb them.)

Kind regards,
