Does OO sync with the way we think?

Hatton, Leslie (1998) Does OO sync with the way we think? IEEE Software, 15 (3). pp. 46-54. ISSN 0740-7459.


Given that corrective-maintenance costs already dominate the software life cycle and look set to increase significantly, reliability in the form of reducing such costs should be the most important software improvement goal. Yet the results are not promising when we review recent corrective-maintenance data for big systems in general and for OO in particular-possibly because of mismatches between the OO paradigm and how we think.
