    Software Architecture (SA) allows for early assessment of and design for quality attributes of a software system, and it plays a critical role in current software development. However, there is no consensus on fundamental issues such as design methods and representation organization and languages, and current proposals lack specificity and preciseness. Thus, it is extremely difficult to build a co... View full abstract»

  • Managing assumptions during agile development

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (316 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The assumptions that underlie software development often go unrecorded and form part of the implicit rationale on which design and implementation decisions are based. These assumptions can fail at any time, with serious consequences. This paper presents a lightweight approach to assumption management (AM) designed to suit agile development. Assumptions were monitored for three months within a smal... View full abstract»

  • Understanding how to support architects in sharing knowledge

    In this paper we report on four years of case study research in a large software development organization, during which we built up understanding on how to effectively support software architects in sharing knowledge. By following a typical action research cycle we first diagnosed the architecting process of this organization, after which we designed and executed a therapy for the identified probl...

  • SOA decision making - what do we need to know

    The SOA decision making process addresses specific concerns, which requires (its own) specific information. Currently, SOA design decisions are often documented (if at all) using generic architectural design decision models. The information that is specifically relevant to SOA design decisions remains hidden in the description of the existing entities of architectural decision models. As a result,... View full abstract»

  • An analysis of decision-centric architectural design approaches

    Emerging research suggests that software architecture can be represented as a set of design decisions. Several decision-centric architectural approaches have been proposed, which provide methodological support to design reasoning and justification. However, these approaches have different premises and they address different aspects of design reasoning. We analyze this developing field from three p... View full abstract»

  • Making use of architecture throughout the software life cycle - How the build hierarchy can facilitate product line development

    This paper presents an empirical study of how the application of genuine architecture can be employed beyond the design phase of product line development. The study is based on a co-operative research project with a company developing product line architecture for hydraulic modelling software. By concretising the architecture as a build hierarchy the architecture mediates the evolution of the desi... View full abstract»

    Development of large projects is a knowledge intensive task. Applying knowledge management techniques to project activities can enhance productivity and reduce risks of failures. However, it has been observed that knowledge management activities suffer from problems such as unavailability of structured information and lack of incentives to put extra efforts for these activities. In this paper, we ... View full abstract»

  • QuOnt: an ontology for the reuse of quality criteria

    Software product audits are knowledge-intensive tasks in which architectural knowledge plays a pivotal role. In the input stage of a software product audit, quality criteria are selected to which the software product should conform. These quality criteria resemble architectural tactics and can be viewed as a definition of the Soll-architecture of the product. Like tactics, the same quality criteri... View full abstract»
