Object-oriented modelling: from analysis to logical design Jung, Darrell
Object-oriented concepts have recently been adapted for enterprise modelling. Because many of the existing object-oriented analysis and design methods were developed from'software engineering roots, they lack fundamental rules and principles for modeling organizational activities. To remedy this situation, Object-Oriented Enterprise Modelling (OOEM), based on an ontological foundation, was developed to provide the rules and principles for enterprise analysis modelling. This thesis continues the work in the development of OOEM by providing extensions to the analysis modelling rules to encompass design concepts. The design principles provide a bridge for the transition from an enterprise model to an initial design of a logical information system model. The work proposes three types of concepts: decomposition, delegation.and static objects, to provide a structured method for reasoning about design when one proceeds from an enterprise model.
