Benefits of Data Flow Diagram

Data-flow diagrams provide a very important tool for software engineering, for a number of reasons:

  • The system scope and boundaries are clearly indicated on the diagrams (more will be described about the boundaries of systems and each DFD later in this chapter).
  • The technique of decomposition of high level data-flow diagrams to a set of more detailed diagrams, provides an overall view of the complete system, as well as a more detailed breakdown and description of individual activities, where this is appropriate, for clarification and understanding.
