Part of series: RB040 Ribbon Flow 040 – Arc Variation
Series Keywords: arc flow chart, arc flow graphic, half-circle flow chart
This series is different than the arc flow series RB003 and RB004. These arcs flow in a variety of directions, making it possible to use them to tell very specific stories. The series example shows how a set of steps that actually imply a continuous process in a very unique way. The three steps of Design, Develop, and Implement are the main process; but the whole process includes a Refine step that flows back into Implement. This is a more accurate depiction of this type of process than a standard four-step horizontal flow. The half circle that contains the picture under the flow is a separate field that you can either use or delete as you wish. We like the picture imported into the half-circle shape because the spaces between the flow arrows aren't obscured by photograph edges if you were to simply place the rectangle photograph behind the flow.
See RB039 for this graphic using chevrons instead of arrows.
