object-oriented analysis

The examination of a problem by modeling it as a group of interacting objects. An object is defined by its class, data elements and behavior. For example; in an order processing system, an invoice is a class, and printing, viewing and totalling are examples of its behavior. Objects (individual invoices) inherit this behavior and combine it with their own data elements. See CRC cards and object-oriented programming.

Much work has been done developing and commercializing OOA processes in recent years, with many companies claiming they can produce parts with comparable mechanical properties at production speeds 1-2 orders of magnitude faster than autoclaves using a fraction of the energy.
Since OOA techniques are intended for requirements analysis,(2) the models built in terms of these techniques comprise models of a real-world environment within which the new system will eventually operate, that is, an environment consisting of people, work processes, material things, software systems and the like.
