This section summarizes the OMT method. Since the publication of Object-Oriented Modeling and Design in late 1990, OMT has undergone an evolution. The basic ideas were sound and changed less than many other methods, but there were many holes in both modeling concepts and process. When possible, I borrowed ideas from other methods so as to avoid unnecessary duplication of ideas. In late 1994 I joined Rational Software Corporation and began working with Grady Booch to unify the OMT and Booch methods into a single method. In 1995 we were joined by Ivar Jacobson to unify the OOSE method as well. Our goal was to completely unify the modeling language of these three methods, but we wanted to include good ideas from other methods as well.
