A Structure Chart can be displayed in a giant flat diagram. More often, its leveled into a stack of connected diagrams. That leveling process can be automated and provides easy navigation up and down the diagram stack.
In a multi-threaded software system, each thread of execution is represented with its own Structure Chart.
Structure Chart can be drawn from a diagram editor and are often associated with other diagram types.
Often Structure Charts are generated automatically from program source code. Each thread of execution can be identified and yields a separate chart with automatic diagram leveling to manage complexity.
