This paper discusses the convenience of the application of object-oriented software engineering (OOSE) concepts and techniques in the development of software for engineering in order to increase the reliability and performance, enhance the reusability and scalability, and reduce the cost of production and maintenance. It is restricted to the software dedicated to analysis of problems solved via the finite element method (FEM), which has many applications in the field of engineering. Nonetheless, the arguments presented here apply equally well, mutatis mutandis, to any software for the engineering.
