Sorry, I don't understand the question. Can you please elaborate on what you mean by "overview of the structured analysis and design", what you want to know about it and why?
Thanks!

The widespread adoption of object oriented methods, e.g., using the UML, would suggest that object oriented analysis and design is a significant improvement upon structured analysis and design.
I have to consider about above statement which to be ture.
1. A brief overview of the main aspects of the structured analysis and design.
2. The main aspects of object orientation.
3. The strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
Thank you

Structured methods are book-length topics, just as are OO methods. Ed Yourdon was one of the top guys in structured stuff, and he embraced OO calling it "structured structured stuff". All the same values of goodness - low coupling, high cohesion, reusable components - but with techniques that improved your odds of success.
Find some older Yourdon books in the library, or a PJ Plauger gem called "Programming on Purpose" for the best pre-OO thoughts on coding. Online look for resources on data flow diagrams and functional decomposition, a couple of tools from the structured days.
