A new book co-authored by HP Labs Researcher Sherif Yacoub aims to make it easier for anyone from developers to managers to build better software systems faster.

Pattern-Oriented Analysis and Design: Composing Patterns to Design Software Systems (Addison Wesley Professional, 2003) by Yacoub and Hany Ammar, a professor at West Virginia University, demonstrates how to assemble robust, large-scale systems from proven design patterns.

The co-authors introduce a methodology, Pattern-Oriented Analysis and Design (POAD), for more quickly composing complex software systems using UML-class (Unified Modeling Language) diagrams as building blocks.

Yacoub, who joined HP Labs in August 2000, specializes in technologies for building reliable large-scale software systems, including design patterns, architecture, modeling, meta-modeling, frameworks and reliability. He has written more than 50 technical papers, and is a co-author of Reuse-Based Software Engineering (John Wiley, 2001).

Ammar, a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University, has written more than 70 technical papers. His research interests include software engineering, reliability engineering, biometrics and computer science.
