Information Diagram at a Glance

A customer needs to make an order. Customer first posts the order to the sales department. Customer's order details are then entered into a centralised database which can only be accessed by the warehouse (to make up the order); the goods are handed to the dispatch department with a delivery note attached to them for delivery. On delivery, the customer receives the goods and the delivery note (which are handled by a member of the dispatch department). Sales department creates an invoice which is posted to the customer; the accounts department then assesses a copy of the invoice from the centralised database. Customer is then required to post the payment to the accounts department.
