Other important methods included Fusion, Shlaer-Mellor
, and Coad-Yourdon.
The technique is used in the Shlaer-Mellor method to represent object communications.
Moore machines are used in the Shlaer-Mellor method for the specification of object behavior (Appendix B.1).
Additional information on the Shlaer-Mellor method is given by Lang , Shlaer and Mellor , and Shlaer and Lang .
Just like ADFDs in the Shlaer-Mellor method (Appendix B.1) the DFD introduces a functional decomposition into the model.
Octopus borrows the domain concept of the Shlaer-Mellor method to define subsystems.
The Shlaer-Mellor method: The OOA96 report, version 1.0.
He has been actively involved in over 60 object-oriented projects in several companies using Shlaer-Mellor
, Colbert, OMT, use-case approach, design patterns, frameworks, among others.
35-47), David Monarchi and Gretchen Puhr compare several methods for object-oriented analysis and design, including the Shlaer-Mellor method.
The Shlaer-Mellor approach has been described and discussed in a number of articles by ourselves and by others.
Thus, while we agree that integration of models is an area for further development in many of the current methods, the Shlaer-Mellor method has already addressed this issue.
