What are Swim Lane Diagrams?

A swim lane diagram is a type of flowchart, where certain tasks or steps are kept in lanes (or columns) grouping them together.

Swim lanes (also commonly referred to as swimlanes) help visualize stages, employees, departments, or any other set of separated categories. Otherwise, a swim lane diagram serves the same purpose as a regular flowchart and shows you the relationship between steps in a process.

By visualizing the process, a swim lane diagram, much like a flowchart, can quickly help identify bottlenecks or inefficiencies where the process can be streamlined or improved.
