Why is object modeling important for system analysis and design?

Part of understanding the importance of object modeling is understanding its use in system analysis and design.

Object modeling sees information as a set of objects and uses object-oriented principles to show a system’s objects. Part of showing a system’s objects is showing their relationships, attributes, and methods.

An object model is important for system analysis and design because it facilitates system development by identifying its classes and objects to design a system that meets customer requirements before development starts. An object model is also important because it complements an object-oriented approach to software development. The demand for a modern approach to system analysis and design made object modeling an important necessity.

Stages of object modeling

The first step in object-oriented modeling is an analysis of the system’s classes and objects, their behavior, and relationships. The next step in object modeling is designing the system based on the information gathered in the analysis stage. The final step is to develop the system using an object-oriented programming language.

Object modeling uses various diagrams to show a graphical representation of the system being proposed. Some diagrams used in object modeling include:

  • Use case diagram
  • Object diagram
  • Class diagram
  • Sequence diagram
  • State transition diagram
  • Activity diagram

The usefulness of the diagrams makes object modeling important for a system analyst because they can accurately represent the classes and objects of the system.
