OOP offers several benefits to the program designer and the user. Object-orientation contributes to the solutions of many problem associated with the development and quality of software products. The new technology promises greater programmer productivity, better quality of software and lesser maintenance cost. The principal advantages are:

  • Through inheritance, we can eliminate redundant code and extend the use of existing classes.
  • We can built programs from standard working modules that communicate with one another rather than, having to start writing the code from scratch. This leads to saving of development time and higher productivity.
  • The principle of data hiding helps the programmers to built secure program that can't be invaded by code in other parts of the program.
  • It is possible to have multiple objects to coexist without any interference.
  • It is possible to map objects in the problem domain to those objects in the program.
  • It is easy to partition the work in a project based on objects.
  • The data-centered design approach enables us to capture more details of the model in an implementable form.
  • Object-oriented systems can be easily upgraded from small to large system
  • Message passing technique for communication between objects make the interface descriptions with external system much simpler.
  • Software complexity can be easily managed.
