Diversifying Software Architecture for Sustainability: A Value-Based Perspective [chapter]

Dalia Sobhy, Rami Bahsoon, Leandro Minku, Rick Kazman
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also use a case study to demonstrate how decision makers and architects can reason about sustainability using a diversified cost-value approach.  ...  We use real options theory to evaluate the options of diversity in design by looking at the trade-offs between the cost and long-term value of different architectural strategies under uncertainty, given  ...  In this paper, we argue that we can link diversity and sustainability from a value-based perspective.  ...

Choice Architecture as a Way to Encourage a Whole Systems Design Perspective for More Sustainable Infrastructure

Nora Harris, Tripp Shealy, Leidy Klotz
2016 Sustainability  
A whole systems design perspective would help connect this fragmented industry and lead to more sustainable outcomes.  ...  Across fields, more sustainable and resilient outcomes are being realized through a whole systems design perspective, which guides decision-makers to consider the entire system affected including interdependent  ...  While reductionism narrowly defines perspectives and makes numerical measurement possible, to design interdependent infrastructures, reductionism must be complemented by systems thinking.  ...
