System flow chart
This describes the data flow for a data processing system. It provides a logical diagram of how the system operates. It represents the flow of documents and the operations performed in a data processing system. A system flowchart also reflects the relationships between inputs, processing and outputs.
Program flow chart
It represents in detail, the various steps to be performed within the system for transforming the input into output. The various steps are logical/arithmetic operations, algorithms, etc. Program flowcharts serve as the basis for discussions and communication between the system analysts and programmers. Program flowcharts are quite helpful to programmers in organizing their programming efforts. These flow charts constitute an important component of documentation for an application.
