Scenario based architectural assessment is a well established approach for assessing architectural designs. However scenario-based methods are not always usable in an industrial context, where they can be perceived as complicated and expensive to use. In this paper we explore why this may be the case and define a simpler technique called TARA which has been designed for use in situations where scenario based methods are unlikely to be successful. The method is illustrated through a case study that explains how it was applied to the assessment of two quantitative analysis systems.
