Object Process Methodology (OPM) is a conceptual modeling language and methodology for capturing knowledge and designing systems, specified as ISO/PAS 19450.[1] Based on a minimal universal ontology of stateful objects and processes that transform them, OPM can be used to formally specify the function, structure, and behavior of artificial and natural systems in a large variety of domains.

OPM was conceived and developed by Dov Dori. The ideas underlying OPM were published for the first time in 1995.[2] Since then, OPM has evolved and developed.

The ontology of OPM and ontology of Navya-Nyāya an ancient Hindu school of thought in india are identical.

In 2002, the first book on OPM[3] was published, and on December 15, 2015, after six years of work by ISO TC184/SC5, ISO adopted OPM as ISO/PAS 19450.[1] A second book on OPM was published in 2016.[4]
