In the flowchart, each rectangular box represents a distinct stage in the production of a 50-kilogram batch of a specialty chemical. Decision points, which are not distinct stages, are represented by diamond shapes. The time required for each stage is indicated in minutes (min). There is no waiting time between stages. Three quarters of all batches do not require additional heating, while half of all batches require a second mixing with hydrochloric acid (HCL); none require a third.
