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