Creating a schematic diagram is a way for an engineer to quickly document the elements of a complex circuit in a way which can be easily read and understood. It allows the engineer to quickly document the elements of a complex circuit in a way that is easy-to-read and understand. A properly captured schematic helps the PCB design process by hierarchically organizing the electrical areas of the evolving PCB design.
