Definitions for "Block Diagram"
A diagram that shows the operation, interrelationships and interdependencies of components in a system. Boxes, or blocks (hence the name), represent the components; connecting lines between the blocks represent interfaces. There are two types of block diagrams: a functional block diagram, which shows a system's subsystems and lower level products and their interrelationships and which interfaces with other systems; and a reliability block diagram, which is similar to the functional block diagram except that it is modified to emphasize those aspects influencing reliability.
A system diagram that illustrates the general operation and interaction of the primary elements using blocks to represent each element. Compare to a Circuit Diagram, which illustrates the specific operation of all elements.
A simplified representation of a system, with each component represented by a block, and each block positioned in order of signal flow through the system.
A graphic way to show different elements of a program or process by the use of squares, rectangles, diamonds, and various shapes connected by lines to show what must be done, when it must be done, and what happens if it's done this way or that.
a set of blocks having inputs and outputs, where these inputs and outputs are connected together by directional lines
