Many object-oriented analysis (OOA) methods are now available for use in system analysis. The methods have many common essential features. For example, they build analysis models for systems and provide an analysis process for building those models. However, the details of the features can be defined differently because of the different goals of analyzing systems with object orientation. The details have to be assessed in order to understand the features correctly within the method, or the features have to be compared precisely in different methods. This article presents a framework as a tool for assessing the details of the common essential features in individual OOA methods, and explores the dependency of the features.
