We propose the Object-Process Language as a textual natural language means for systems specification that is complementary to the graphic description through Object-Process Diagrams. 1 Natural Languages and Graphic Representations of Systems As the complexity of computer-based systems grows, precise and concise specification is in increasing demand, calling for new approaches of systems development. One very common and powerful modeling technique is simple prose, or natural language.
