Abstract: This paper describes the design, specification, implementation of and experiences from an Interactive Flowcharting Technique for communicating and realizing algorithms. Educating the expert to know how to use the ideas in the same "language" as the other persons in the software development group. Our goals are: to help novices to understand computers, by giving them a framework for organizing algorithms, and to support development of software produced by groups of people over an extended period of time. Based on the notions of Dimensional Flowcharts, a system called the DIMsystem has been developed for handling structured flowcharts.
