Object-oriented programming enhances the productivity of developers, simplifies software management, and helps overcome the limitations of traditional procedural programming. In a reality of ever-increasing software cost and complexity, object-oriented programming (OOP) is a paradigm that enhances the productivity of developers and simplifies software management.
