This is a belated contribution.

Talk to your programmers. They have, (or used to have) a set of standards
for flow-diagramming branches. there are different conventions for
representing "if... then ... else ..." and multiple choices.

(If ... then ... else if ... then ... else if ... has been used, but is
horribly clumsy.)

Science is nothing but trained and organised common sense, differing from
the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit; and its methods
differ fromthose of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and
thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club --T.H.
