<p>An extended object-oriented design methodology is proposed which incorporates a top-down, stepwise refinement approach in a coherent fashion. The extended object-oriented design methodology also includes a phase of progressive object refinement to support the nesting of objects, which would allow entities in real life that are composed of subentities to be modeled. A design example is included, and experiences encountered using this methodology in a course are described.</p>
