Old Trick, New Dogs: Learning to use CRUD matrices early in object-oriented information system development

Conference paper


Developing CRUD matrices to check and aid the creation of analysis and design artefacts is well established. The use of CRUD matrices in object-oriented information system development (OOISD) is typically late in the development cycle, when design is taking place. At this design stage the CRUD process focuses on small portions of the system identifying the collaborations between classes within a use case or the operations within a class. Few have documented the use of CRUD matrices early in OOISD.
