DFD for Library Management System

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) depicts the flow of information and the transformation applied when a data moves in and out from a system. The overall system is represented and described using input, processing and output in the DFD. The inputs can be:

  • Book request when a student requests for a book.
  • Library card when the student has to show or submit his/her identity as a proof.

The overall processing unit will contain the following output that a system will produce or generate:

  • Book will be the output as the book demanded by the student will be given to them.
  • Information of demanded book should be displayed by the library information system that can be used by the student while selecting the book which makes it easier for the student.
