Sample text

How many times have you read something like this in a document? The system shall improve data access for the entire sales staff. B. White, The Elements of Style, 4th ed. (New York, NY: Longman, 1999). The Language of Your Story 29 “Improve” means almost nothing. Does the author mean faster access for those who have it now, access for those who don’t have it, or more different types of data? We can’t tell. The requirement would be better with more detailed information about who gets access to what data, and for what purpose, like this: The system shall provide all operations staff access to all nonarchived transactions for ad hoc querying with the firm’s standard query tools.

Data store: A data store is data at rest. Examples include a table in a database, a report, the volatile memory of a computer, or even a person’s memory. A data store must have a name and requires either an input or an output. Known Accounts • Externals: An external is a source of or destination for data that is not in the scope of the current work. It is also sometimes called a terminator. An external must have a name and requires either an input or an output. Internal Sales Desk Drawing Pictures • Data flow: A data flow represents data moving between processes or to and from externals or data stores.

I strongly discourage using complex symbols that have nuanced meanings (“decision points,” “recommits,” “feedback loops,” “interface,” and so on). The beauty of this diagramming method is its simplicity. A reader can intuitively grasp the meaning of the diagram without knowing exactly what all the symbols mean. 3 I am going to focus on what I have found most useful in the field and add some refinements that can help the diagrams to be more clear and readable. As a writer, I also recommend a very strict method for integrating the diagrams with structured text.
