  object-oriented design
      (OOD) A design method in which a system is modelled
     as a collection of cooperating objects and individual objects
     are treated as instances of a class within a class hierarchy.
     Four stages can be identified: identify the classes and objects,
     identify their semantics, identify their relationships and
     specify class and object interfaces and implementation.
     Object-oriented design is one of the stages of object-oriented
     Schlaer-Mellor is one approach to OOD.
