They've replaced the term "data flow diagrams" with "process flow diagrams" and appear to have replaced the old Data Flow Diagram Legend figure with a new "Example Process: Inputs, Tools & Techniques, and Outputs" figure.
Thanks for the info Kiron.
I would have to put more time to read the New LOCK PMBOK.
I still hope PMI will wake up and realize a reference document user need to highlight!
If they did that, then, I think there is something missing. That diagram does not explain the meaning of the different symbols used in the process flow charts (dark-dashed line, light-dashed line, different process icons, documents, ...).
I know that from the previous version, but some colleagues IPMA certified were asking me if there was not legend for this in the current version. I think I would have to use the figure from ed. 5.
I don't think the 5th edition figure will help (on top of that, PMI will prevent you from using old figures if you are a REP) as the DFD styles have changed between the editions.
For example, there's no differentiation between inter & extra-knowledge process flows - only appears to be one type of dotted arrows.
Thanks for your insight. There is a little problem with my screen resolution, and I percibed that the different dashed lines were kept. Also, the only process box that is different in design (like the older external processes) is "enterprise/organization".
Well, I think I am experiencing some resistance to changes :)
