There were frameworks established for analysis and design models of conventional information systems (IS). They showed the common features of the models on the common aspects of IS, and provided general strategies for developing IS. Now we need to establish similar frameworks for business object analysis and design models of object-oriented information systems (OOIS), because object technology is becoming more mature and is widely used in developing e-commerce and web applications. Also the promotion and use of industry standard such as UML (Unified Modelling Language) notation have provided the possibility and basis for establishing the frameworks. This paper first shows the analysis and design strategies used by current object-oriented methods in building the two models. It then introduces a framework that was established for business object analysis and design models of OOIS. UML notation is fitted into the framework also for the purpose of representing the models using standard notation. Finally, it shows part of the results of applying the framework in analysing and designing a small business system.
