Flow Charts

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) uses the commonly accepted approach of flow charts to show how a process flows beginning to end. NJDOT utilizes two types of flow charts - Top Down Flow Charts and Swim Lane Flow Charts.

A Top Down Flow Chart shows the high-level view of how a process works and the major activities and the relationships between the activities (the logic). Presently, Top Down Flow Charts are published as Portable Document Format (PDF) documents only with no embedded hyperlinks to additional activity details.

A Swim Lane Flow Chart, also known as Cross-Functional Flow Chart, shows the high-level view of how a process works and the activities and the relationships between activities (the logic). By using Swim Lanes, the flow chart also shows how key stakeholders are involved with each activity. In a Swim Lane Flow Chart, the involved stakeholders are assigned their own lanes. Any activity they are responsible for will be listed in that lane. Arrows are used to show how activities are sequenced, or how the process moves through the organization.

Each activity is linked to a process activity description page, which is a complete look at an activity including a detailed description and links to predecessor and successor activities, guidelines, recommendations, forms, and templates.

A Swim Lane Flow Chart is more detailed than a Top Down Flow Chart.
