Object-Process Methodology (OPM) calls for integrated system development, supported by Object-Process CASE Tool - OPCAT-a Computer Aided Software Engineering tool, which supports development and standard representation of industrial systems. OPCAT is designed to provide an Integrated System Engineering Environment (ISEE). Due to their generic nature and comprehensiveness, OPM and OPCAT are suitable for both developing Document Analysis Systems (DAS’s) and representing them in a clear and standard way. We present the principles of OPM and show how it can be used as an ISEE for generic DAS development.
