Jonas Lindekens, Ann Heylighen
2008 Artificial intelligence for engineering design, analysis and manufacturing  
This contrast motivated our attempt to capture and exchange the arguments and rationale architects develop while designing.  ...  A case in point is Building Stories, a methodology to capture and explore real-world design processes through storytelling (Martin et al. 2005) , or the Advanced Design Support project, a decision support  ...  We would like to thank the participants of the experiments and the offices involved in the observations.  ...

A design pattern language for engineering (parallel) software

Kurt Keutzer, Berna L. Massingill, Timothy G. Mattson, Beverly A. Sanders
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 Workshop on Parallel Programming Patterns - ParaPLoP '10  
To make progress, we need to step back and understand the software people wish to engineer. We do this with a design pattern language.  ...  Parallel programming, design patterns, pattern language. ... and with that out of the way ... let the great debate begin. CONTEXT Words are the medium of exchange in any discussion.  ...  In this case, the computation for each iteration breaks down into three components: (1) exchanging boundary data, (2) updating the interiors of each chunk, and (3) updating boundary regions.  ...

Monitoring the Complexity of IT Architectures: Design Principles and an IT Artifact

Thomas Widjaja, University of Passau, Germany, Robert Gregory, University of Virginia, USA
2020 Journal of the AIS  
To answer this question, we present a set of design principles that we derived from our iterative process of IT artifact construction and evaluation activities with five companies.  ...  Monitoring the complexity of a firm's IT architecture is imperative to ensure a stable and flexible platform foundation for competing in the era of digital business strategy.  ...  We would like to express special gratitude to Dr. Alexander Schütz for helping with data collection, artifact design, and providing feedback on prior versions of the paper.  ...

Applying the design structure matrix to system decomposition and integration problems: a review and new directions

T.R. Browning
2001 IEEE transactions on engineering management  
A design structure matrix (DSM) provides a simple, compact, and visual representation of a complex system that supports innovative solutions to decomposition and integration problems.  ...  In this position, he applies Lean thinking to help determine continuous improvement strategy, especially for processes such as product development, and also serves as a point of contact with university  ...  The greatest leverage in process architecting (and process improvement) is at the interfaces.  ...

The 4+1 View Model of architecture

P.B. Kruchten
