We develop a whole life cycle method, from requirements engineering to system construction, starting from the notion of a Map. A Map represents requirements in terms of intentions and strategies to achieve intentions. We propose to transform these requirements into a Data Flow Diagram. We show that a Map and a DFD are compatible for this transformation and develop transformation rules. The materials management example is used to illustrate the approach.
