Abstract

This research project gathered data about the use of UML and object-oriented analysis

and design as the approach to the development of information systems. The data

collection method consisted of interviews with information systems application

developers with wide ranging differences in background. The authors used causal

mapping for analysis of the data gathered. This chapter focuses on the authors’

experiences with causal mapping as a method for exploring issues and relationships.

Causal mapping was also used to document tips on its use illustrating these with

findings regarding UML and object-oriented analysis and design in particular.
