This paper demonstrates how the fundamental concepts of a layered design found in the OSI model may be realised in the dataflow diagram (DFD) type approach to application development. The work describes a coupling between DFD and the OSI model, and describes a methodology using that coupling to design implementations of applications which conform to the OSI model. The work serves to complement existing approaches to the conceptual modelling of distributed information systems.
