SADT diagrams are easily understood by non-specialists. SADT tends to lead to a functionally based design.

Use Cases is a requirements capture method that identifies the 'users' of the system and the actions (cases) that the system should support.

Data Item Descriptions (DID) are defined and used in MIL-STD-498 to provide descriptions of document deliverables for software projects. A DID specifies the chapters and outlines the required chapter contents for the document deliverable. MIL-STD-498 supplies a comprehensive set of DIDs which may be used by an organisation as a starting point in developing their own set of DI.

Static testing (of code) is carried out by examination of code and checking the code for errors prior to actually running the code. Static testing should be carried out as a formal exercise and is facilitated by having coding standards against which the code can be tested.
