The software architecture is one of the most crucial artifacts within the lifecycle of a software system. Decisions made at the architectural level directly enable, facilitate, hamper, or interfere with the achievement of business goals as well as meeting functional and quality requirements. Software architectures are also essential for the success of product line engineering. In this work, we summarize how, from our practical experience, static architecture evaluation contributes to architecture development. We also describe the different purposes of architectural evaluations.
