Graphic Version

This is a process flowchart with eight shapes and seven connectors.

Flowchart Logic

Quadrilateral 1 flows into Rectangle 2
Rectangle 2 and Parallelogram 3 flow into Rectangle 4
Rectangle 4, Parallelogram 5 and Quadrilateral 7 flow into Rectangle 6
Rectangle 6 flows into Oval 8
Oval 8 flows into Rectangle 2

Shape Definitions

Quadrilateral 1 - User Needs
Rectangle 2 - Develop Data System Objectives
Parallelogram 3 - Data Standardization
Rectangle 4 - Develop Specific Data Requirements
Parallelogram 5 - Existing Data Sources
Rectangle 6 - Determine Methods to Acquire Data
Quadrilateral 7 - Constraints (e.g., Funding, Staff, Time)
Oval 8 - Implementation
