Object-oriented design is concerned with developing an object-oriented model of a software system to implement the identified requirements. Many Object Oriented Design methods have been described since the late 1980s. The most popular Object Oriented Design methods include Booch, Buhr, Wasserman, and the HOOD method developed by the European Space Agency.
Object Oriented Design can yield the following benefits: maintainability through simplified mapping to the problem domain, which provides for less analysis effort, less complexity in system design, and easier verification by the user; reusability of the design artifacts, which saves time and costs; and productivity gains through direct mapping to features of Object-Oriented Programming Languages.
The emergence of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) created by the joint efforts of leading object technologists Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, and James Rumbaugh with contributions from many others in the object community-represents one of the most significant developments in object technology.
