Booch' s Object-Oriented Design (Booch OOD)
What is Booch OOD
Grady Booch's Object-Oriented Design (OOD), also known as Object-Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD), is a precursor to the Unified Modeling (UML). The Booch method includes six types of diagrams: class, object, state transition, interaction, module and process.

The notation for Booch OOD includes six types of diagrams: class, object, state transition, interaction, module and process. The Booch template supports all of these.
Examples of Booch OOD Diagram
Booch's notation is generally regarded as the most complete one for representing object-oriented systems. Unfortunately, the notation is also complex and can lead to fragmented or duplicated information across model diagrams. Booch considers himself more of a developer than a methodologist, so he concentrates more on the results of system analysis and design than its process. He is a major contributor to UML, and has also made his notation a property of the public domain.
