  3. Designer/2000 will automatically place the Child function that you have defined directly below the parent function clearly showing the hierarchy. (See Figure 4.9).

  4. Using steps 7 and 8 create two more child functions or processes under Maintain Student Records with Short Definition as Update Student Records (Label SRS1.2) and Delete Student Records (Label SRS1.3) respectively. (See Figure 4.10 for a view of your updated diagram).

    In a similar manner, you can decompose the various functions as many times as you like.
