# Building Smartdiagram (Process Sequence Diagram)

I need to build a sequence smartdiagram that is more fit with texts inserted to it. Hopefully that looks like the following diagram:

I have already tried with the normal smartdiagram (sequence) by default, but I did not know how to do the settings to it.

slightly modified answer of Ignasi: nodes are in chain, used is enumitem for lists in nodes ...

\documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{chains, positioning, shapes.symbols}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\AtBeginEnvironment{tikzpicture}{%
\setlist[itemize]{topsep=0pt, parsep=0pt,
leftmargin=2em}
}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[
node distance = 2mm,
start chain = going right,
start/.style = {signal, draw=#1, fill=#1!30,
text width=32mm, minimum height=28mm, font=\scriptsize,
signal pointer angle=150, on chain},
cont/.style = {start=#1, signal from=west}
]

\node[start=orange] {\bfseries
Experimentation\\ Definition \& Supports\\
\normalfont
\begin{itemize}
\item Experimentation suite \& benchmar methodology
\item testbeds detailed analysis
\end{itemize}   };
\node[cont=olive] {\bfseries
Experimentation\\ Definition \& Supports\\
\normalfont
\begin{itemize}
\item Experimentation suite \& benchmar methodology
\item testbeds detailed analysis
\end{itemize}   };
\node[cont=gray] {\bfseries
Experiments execution\\ Analysis \& Benchmark\\[1ex]
\hfil
\includegraphics[width=22mm]{example-image-a}  };
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• This answer it is very good. Jul 17 '20 at 21:39

If you don't mind using pure TikZ, you can start from:

\documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning, shapes.symbols}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[
block/.style={signal, text width=3cm, font=\tiny, draw=#1, fill=#1!30, signal pointer angle=140}]

\node[block=orange] (a) {\textbf{Experimentation}\\\textbf{Definition \& Supports}\\
\begin{itemize}\item Experimentation suite \& benchmar methodology \item testbeds detailed analysis\end{itemize}};
\node[block=green, right=2mm of a, signal from=west] (b) {\textbf{Experimentation}\\\textbf{Definition \& Supports}\\
\begin{itemize}\item Experimentation suite \& benchmar methodology \item testbeds detailed analysis\end{itemize}};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


• With the help of 'overpic' package, I could also insert the image in the smartdiagram sequence figure, but I still do not know how to adjust the whole figure and make all the parts have the same size. I attached the final figure in the main question panel. Jan 24 '18 at 11:56
• @AliMansour Ignasi was very kind answering a just-do-it-for-me question. But if you have other request it is better if you add a minimal working example (MWE). You asked many questions, but only very few with a MWE. Jan 24 '18 at 12:28
