# Special Smartdiagram TiKz Process Diagram

Could you please help me to draw the attached photo by LaTeX accompanied with some clarification texts inside the circles and between the arrows.

• what you try so far? – Zarko Feb 26 '18 at 0:39
• I can only normal process diagram by 'smartdiagram' and 'TiKz' packages, but I wish to make something similar looks like above – Ali Mansour Feb 26 '18 at 0:49
• You can add a "normal process" using tikz with the circles [use \draw[fill=colorname] (x1,y1) circle (Radious); and may be some arrows and rectangles].. This way someone is going to help for sure – koleygr Feb 26 '18 at 0:58
• Maybe not for absolutely sure, but much more likely. Right now this is just a do-it-for-me-I-can't-be-bothered. You haven't even given us what you can do. And what sort of explanatory texts? May I ask why you are determined to do this in TikZ? There doesn't seem any pressing reason to do it that way. Just use something like Inkscape if you don't want to spend the time learning TikZ. – cfr Feb 26 '18 at 2:07

This picture shows what is missing in your question. ;-)

• Wow, so amazing, I am really impressed :)))))) – Ali Mansour Feb 26 '18 at 9:45
