AbstractA tremendous amount of work has been done recently in the area of Object Oriented Design (OOD) methodology. Most often, texts and papers explaining these methodologies are centered around the explanation of some arcane graphical notation. One is led to believe that the key to understanding Object Orientedness in general will be found by understanding and applying this notation. An understanding of the essence of OOD is difficult to acquire in this manner due to the disproportionate amount of energy required to memorize the graphic symbology. The prospective designer is often left with an understanding of the symbols, but with no understanding of how to apply them to a real world large scale problem. This paper provides an explanation of the Object Oriented paradigm with an example application to telemetry measurements. Next this paper provides an explanation of the most popular graphic notation for Object Oriented Design, the Booch Notation. Finally, this paper shows an alternative graphic notation that can be effectively used in Object Oriented Design during the initial stages of design to help eliminate the learning curve associated with the more popular Object Oriented notations.
