"How about adding OOA Tool to the list. It is the only tool offering Shlaer-Mellor OOA/RD support at present (as well as Executable UML support)."

All of the different methods/notations were small but well defined. They could all be learned easily. Whether a particular team member had an aptitude for creating such models was another matter of course.

Profile Information

My interest in Model Driven Software Development:
I'm interested in Shlaer-Mellor OOA/RD and Executable UML based development.
My experience of Model Driven Software Development:
I'm an expert on Shlaer-Mellor OOA/RD and am currently building a Shlaer-Mellor and Executable UML CASE tool. I'm also creating a new 'standard' metamodel and interchange format for Shlaer-Mellor OOA/RD along with a two-way mapping to Executable UML.
