The overall goal of this work is to provide problem-oriented support for Pattern-Oriented Analysis and Design (POAD) so that (i) we may construct a better understanding of the relationship of POAD to other software development approaches and (ii) we can extend the reach of problem-orientation to design patterns. This paper extends our previous contributions to show how both high-level and detailed design phases can be given a problem-oriented encoding.
