Pattern-Driven Architectural Partitioning: Balancing Functional and Non-functional Requirements

Neil Harrison, Paris Avgeriou
2007 2007 Second International Conference on Digital Telecommunications (ICDT'07)  
In this work we focus on the early stages of the software architecture process, when initial high-level system partitioning is being performed.  ...  We propose a pattern-based approach that leverages the benefits of patterns, and fits well with existing methods.  ...  In order to generalize this outcome and provide a systematic, disciplined way of system partitioning, we propose a new approach, called Pattern-Driven Architectural Partitioning.  ...

An architecture-centric approach for goal-driven requirements elicitation

Zoya Durdik
2011 Proceedings of the 19th ACM SIGSOFT symposium and the 13th European conference on Foundations of software engineering - SIGSOFT/FSE '11  
This paper proposes a process concept to support system development with the help of an architecture-centric approach for goal-driven requirements elicitation.  ...  Software system development typically starts from a requirement specification followed by stepwise refinement of available requirements while transferring them into the system architecture.  ...  In this paper I propose a process concept to support system development with the help of an architecture-centric approach for goal-driven requirements elicitation.  ...

A study of architectural decision practices

Thomas D. LaToza, Evelina Shabani, Andre van der Hoek
2013 2013 6th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE)  
Architectural decisions shape a software architecture and determine its ability to meet its requirements.  ...  Costly changes to architectural decisions are caused by the discovery of an Achilles' heel, an important scenario that cannot be supported by an architectural decision.  ...  Revisiting an architectural decision was driven by an Achilles' heel -a crucial scenario that the architecture needed to support but which the technology or pattern made difficult or impossible.  ...
