This paper deals with the use of Structured Analysis just prior to system acceptance testing. Specifically, the drawing of data flow diagrams (DFD) was done after integration testing. The DFD's provided a picture of the logical flow through the integrated system for thorough system acceptance testing. System test sets, were derived from the flows in the DFD's. System test repeatability was enhanced by the matrix which flowed from the test sets.
