Therefore, the reuse of the architecture would be naïve if only carried out based on the architectural views, i.e. without regard to the design reasoning behind the architectural process.  ...  In this paper we review an approach to defining new software architectures through the use of derivational analogy, i.e. by replaying the process, sequence of decisions, behind the definition of a previously  ...  To this end, the reuse of the architecture would be incomplete if only carried out based on the architectural views, i.e. without regard to the design reasoning behind the architectural process.  ...

Sufficient reasons for classifier decisions in the presence of constraints [article]

Niku Gorji, Sasha Rubin
