Option 1: Data Flow Diagramming
DFDs are process diagrams that emphasize the data consumed, produced, and stored by processes under discussion. Complex processes are decomposed into their constituent elements to reveal the most elemental sub-processes and their use of data atoms. In a 2- to 3-page paper, describe process decomposition and flow balancing so that non-technical participating stakeholders can understand the notation of the DFD and the requirements specification value it contains. Your goal is to ensure that your stakeholders can help you validate your DFD.
Include a title page and reference page. Make sure your paper follows APA style according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. Use two CSU-Global Library resources and/or outside, credible academic sources other than the textbook, course materials, or other information provided as part of the course materials. You may not use Wikipedia for any CSU-Global assignment. For this assignment, a credible source is defined as:
- A scholarly or peer-reviewed journal article
- A newspaper article
- A trade or industry journal article, publication, or website, including those from trade organizations
