*

Lists are pretty versatile. There"s a wide variety of SmartArt styles in PowerPoint, ranging from simple "Basic Blocks" lớn "Vertical Lists" that show things in a sequenced, descending order. If you aren"t sure what style lớn use, start with a danh mục style & iterate from there.

*
*
*

The Process SmartArt styles can help you record how things should happen, step by step. If you"re making a hàng hóa for example, use a Process to lớn show how the product goes through each steps of the manufacturing process.

3. Cycle

Cycles are similar to process maps, but the idea is that they are continuous. Use a Cycle type chart when you"re mapping a process that will keep on going.

Cycles are similar to lớn Process SmartArt objects, but the idea is that the process is continuous.

Cycles are continuous, ongoing processes. If you run a company where processes flow similarly each month, use cycles khổng lồ capture those processes.

A relationship SmartArt is designed khổng lồ show how individual parts relate. In the examples below, you can see that there are a variety of relationship charts: balance charts, funnels, và hexagons.

Use Relationship Smartart khổng lồ show how individual parts relate khổng lồ each other.

The common thread is that these charts show how parts relate khổng lồ one another. 

6. Matrix

Matrix charts are similar khổng lồ relationship charts, but it"s more about taking one object and splitting it inlớn equal parts that 3D the whole.

Use Matrix SmartArt to demonstrate both relationships & how parts fit into the whole.

Pyramids are kind of lượt thích hybrids between process charts & hierarchies. Each of the pyramids are chất lượng và show how the parts of the pyramid fit together.

Pyramics have sầu characteristics of other SmartArt options, but in a chất lượng triangle shaped kiến thiết.
