Abstract : This report describes a set of strategies for performing software reengineering using object-oriented technology (OOT) for information systems in the DoD. The risks, problems, and issues associated with using OOT are identified. A reengineering example using OOT is given, the U.S. Air Force Base-Level System Modernization (BLSM) program, which has been designed to modernize base-level automated information systems at Air Force bases. One of BLSM's applications, the Air Force Operations Resource Management System, serves as an example of the program's approach to full-scale software reengineering using OOT. OOT reengineering guidelines are provided, covering the use of DoD-directed analysis techniques (IDEF0 and IDEF1X) and how to identify potential features for object-oriented modeling from the structured analysis models of legacy systems (when such models exist). The audience of this report includes DoD software development managers, technical leaders, and software engineers.
