Structure Chart

What is Structure Chart?

A structure chart is a diagram that represents the hierarchical structure of a system, showing the relationships between the various components of the system and their functions. Structure charts are often used in software engineering to represent the logical structure of a software system, and to show how the various components of the system interact with one another.

In a structure chart, the components of the system are represented by boxes or rectangles, and the relationships between the components are represented by lines connecting the boxes. The boxes may be arranged horizontally or vertically, depending on the desired layout of the chart.

Structure charts can be used to understand the overall design and architecture of a system, and can be useful for communicating the design to others. They can also be used to identify potential bottlenecks or inefficiencies in the system, and to identify opportunities for improvement.
