object-oriented design of complex systems
Many important systems, e.g. manufacturing,vehicle navigation,business
planning, are quite complex and require powerful methods for their
construction.These systems also have security and reliability constraints .
The object-oriented approach is promising on this
respect and we present here an overview of their use in handling
complexity. In particular ,we consider multilevel architectures,horizontal
(subsystem)decomposition, view/model separation, use cases and their sequences,
combination of models, patterns , concurrency and real-time aspects.
All these ideas must be applied through a strict and
systematic process ,that sequences the stages of development and produces
appropriate documentation. We consider here mostly analysis and design aspects.
We show a variety of examples to illustrate these concepts.
