Learn DRAKON in 60 seconds
The DRAKON language is a precise tool for thinking. Professionals use DRAKON to solve complex technical and organizational problems. Nevertheless, learning the basics of DRAKON does not take much time.
This is how to make a DRAKON flowchart:
- Take a procedure.
- Break up the procedure into steps.
- Put each step into a separate icon.
There are only two types of steps in a procedure: orders and questions.
- Put the orders in Action icons.
- Put the questions in Question icons.
- Follow the rule: one icon—one thought.
That was the core of the DRAKON language. Besides the Action and Question icons, DRAKON has other means of expression, but those means play a supplementary role.
The critical thing is to identify the procedures and then split them into orders and questions.
