Dealing with crosscutting requirements in software development usually makes the process more complex. Modeling and analyzing of these requirements in the software architecture facilitate detecting architectural risks early. Distributed systems have more complexity and so these facilities are much useful in development of such systems. Aspect oriented Architectural Description Languages (ADD) have emerged to represent solutions for discussed problems; nevertheless, imposing radical changes to existing architectural modeling methods is not easily acceptable by architects. Software architecture analysis methods, furthermore, intend to verify that the quality requirements have been addressed properly. In this paper, we enhance ArchC# through utilization of aspect features with an especial focus on Non-Functional Requirements (NFR). ArchC# is mainly focused on describing architecture of distributed systems; in addition, it unifies software architecture with an object- oriented implementation to make executable architectures. Moreover, in this paper, a comparative analysis method is presented for evaluation of the result. All of these materials are illustrated along with a case study.
