Abstract

This study focuses on capturing all process-based data transaction system for the highest level of abstraction in inbound logistics activities in SME environment. As a business process modelling tool objective to provide better understanding and analytical view of the system, Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) are chosen due to the specific features of depicting the information movement and a complete set of diagrams are generated including the Context, Level 0 and Level 1 diagrams. The proposed DFDs for inbound logistics system provide transitional views for the system which is not easily achievable merely through business process modelling (BPM) at identification of data dependencies, system components and data bundle specification details required for an object-oriented and module-based conceptual and logical data modelling effort. As the results, all system components as well as all data repositories and data bundles to be used in database blueprint design and messaging and notification system development are identified.
