When you want to make your own diagram, firstly identify the lanes. Decide what divisions you need represented by swimlanes and label them. Next, start your chart by defining the starting point of the process. Add a rounded rectangle to the top of the appropriate swim lane to indicate its starting point and label it. After that, don’t forget to add steps. Each step should be connected to the one before it with a line. To draw steps in the same swimlane, draw from top to bottom. To add a step in another division go from left to right. With each step, describe what it represents until you reach the end of the process. The arrows between the steps indicate the transfer of information or flow.
