This document describes a suggested approach for an organization considering transitioning object- oriented techniques into its software development process. The process of introducing and transitioning object-oriented technology OOT is described in detail, and is based upon the experiences of other OOT adopters. The primary audience for this document is software development managers and developers within the DoD Central Design Activities CDAs, in particular those CDAs responsible for in-house information system development and maintenance. Using a pilot project as the primary mechanism for introducing OOT into the organization, the OOT transition process consists of four steps with associated activities Perform Planning develop a detailed understanding of the resources, activities, and commitment that will be required to conduct an OOT pilot project, Conduct Training establish a well-understood competency in OOT by all participants in the pilot project, Conduct Pilot Projects use OOT on one or more small, non-critical pilot projects, and Transition OOT to the Organization establish an OOT capability within the organization.
