The steps of system design are: I use package diagrams as part of deciding how the components are to be grouped in terms of the source code repositories; this is closely related to my deployment strategy as each package will be intended for deployment to a particular server. Most references recommend that this be kept as simple and limited as possible; Coad and Yourdon go a bit further, by giving a more precise guideline Object-Oriented DesignSection 8.

For this reason, subject diagrams are useful as a ‘top-level’ view to guide the programmer through to more detailed class diagrams for yoirdon ‘subject’ area.

Thus, an attribute of a class in object-oriented analysis resembles an attribute of an entity in an entity-relationship diagram. As defined by Coad and Yourdon, cohesion is.

A list of the associate the primary behaviors services with each object – Each object will have behaviors which uniquely belong to the object.


My first thought was for component diagramsbut I have always viewed components as principally an implementation concern rather than part of the problem domain.

Object technology analysls many different methodologies to help analyze and design computer systems. As well, they recommend that services’ names be chosen to be as simple, and understandable, as possible. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Shlaer-Mellor methodology has its primary strength in system design and is considered somewhat weak on analysis.

CPSC Coad and Yourdon’s Method for Object-Oriented Design

The next step in analysis is called “Attributes”, and the final step is called “Services”, where all of the behaviors or anlysis for each class are identified. Interaction Coupling refers to orientdd between classes due to message connections. The criteria for object-oriented designs seem less specific or concrete than the criteria for structured designs, but they do seem to be worth noting.

This will be the subject of the next set of notes. Note that almost the same list was given for things in the problem domain that might be modeled by entities on an entity-relationship diagram. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

CPSC Coad and Yourdon’s Object-Oriented Analysis

From inside the book. Object-oriented analysis starts with a traditional structured specification, and adds the following information: However, the Java user interface library is currently regarded as being well designed, and information about it is freely available.

To understand and use these four methodologies would yyourdon difficult, if not impossible, for all projects.

A list all system behaviors – A list of all verbs within the process names such as Prepare order summary report, generate invoices, etc. In a section with this title, Coad and Yourdon introduce some new guidelines – and repeat some of the ones already given in the discussion of cohesion and coupling.


Coad and Yourdon draw classes as rectangles with rounded corners, and with an outer, grey, outline shown around an inner black one.

However, the design should ”stabilize” analysi quickly, with changes becoming progressively smaller as development proceeds. This method is also discussed, more briefly, in recent editions of Pressman’s Software Engineering: The problem domain component – This will define the classes that should be in the problem domain. The normalization rules for entity-relationship diagrams, stating that attributes cannot have complex internal structure, should either be ignored completely for attributes of classes, or at least considered to be less important.

Burleson is the American Team Note: More information about reusable components and how to take advantage of them, for object-oriented development will be included in later pages.

If need be, it is possible to use concepts from one method with concepts from another technique, basically creating your own object development technique. Typically, a subject would represent the top level of a gen-spec or a whole-part class tree.

The object-oriented methodologies require a more iterative process with the same five steps. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.
