5.2 Control Flow Chart and Structure, Data, and Transaction Testing

Control flow charts are most often used to model test design. They can be used to design tests at structural level, or functional level, or data level.

Control flow charts, as explained in earlier chapter, can focus on structure of the program and are very effective in statement, branch, and path testing. Here control flow charts are very useful for programmers to check structure and path.

Control flow chart is also a very good notational representation to represent data flows that indicate the manner in which data undergoes transformation in a program.

Control flow chart and its notations can be used to create its functional or behavioural model. This would help in functional test design. Here the beneficiary is the independent system tester.
