Bhatnagar. P (2009:1) decided the advantages of flowcharts are as follows:

a.    Communication: Flowcharts are better way of communicating the logic of a system to all concerned.

b.    Effective analysis: With the help of flowchart, problem can be analyses in more effective way.

c.    Proper documentation: Program flowcharts serve as a good program documentation, which is needed for various purposes.

d.   Efficient Coding: The flowcharts act as a guide or blueprint during the systems analysis and program development phase.

e.    Proper Debugging: The flowchart helps in debugging process.

f.     Efficient Program Maintenance: The maintenance of operating program becomes easy with the help of flowchart. It helps the programmer to put efforts more efficiently on that part (

2.      Disadvantages Of Using Flowcharts

a.    Complex logic: Sometimes, the program logic is quite complicated. In that case, flowchart becomes complex and clumsy.

b.    Alterations and Modifications: If alterations are required the flowchart may require re-drawing completely.

c.    Reproduction: As the flowchart symbols cannot be typed, reproduction of flowchart becomes a problem.

d.   The essentials of what is done can easily be lost in the technical details of how it is done (Pranav Bhatnagar 2009:1).
