A rationale-based architecture model for design traceability and reasoning

Antony Tang, Yan Jin, Jun Han
2007 Journal of Systems and Software  
The verification and maintenance of these architecture designs require an understanding of how and why the system are constructed.  ...  However, these methods are ineffective in communicating design reasoning in practice because they do not support tracing to design elements and requirements in an effective manner.  ...  Since this is an exploratory study, the list of generic design rationales (below) is comprehensive but not exhaustive. 6.  ...

Matthew J. LaMantia, Yuanfang Cai, Alan MacCormack, John Rusnak
2008 Seventh Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA 2008)  
We show that DSM models and DRT precisely explain how realworld modularization activities in one case allowed for different rates of evolution in different software modules and in another case conferred  ...  In this paper, we examine the design evolution of two software product platforms through the modeling lens of DRT and design structure matrices (DSMs).  ...  Server 2 Case Study In the second case study, we examine a closedsource, commercially available product.  ...

Architecture and design intent in component & COTS based systems

D.E. Perry, P.S. Grisham
2006 Fifth International Conference on Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS)-Based Software Systems (ICCBSS'05)  
Architecture and design intent are critical elements in the development and evolution of software systems. They are critical in two ways.  ...  The lack of access to internal implementation details makes the issue of architecture and design intent even more critical in COTS and component based systems.  ...  Acknowledgements Some of the work presented here is exploratory work we have done with Matthew Hawthorne as part of his preparation for his PhD thesis proposal [14] , in particular that of architecture  ...

What makes software design effective?

Antony Tang, Aldeida Aleti, Janet Burge, Hans van Vliet
2010 Design Studies  
In this research, we have observed software designers at work and have analysed how they make decisions during design.  ...  Software design is a complex cognitive process in which decision making plays a major role, but our understanding of how decisions are made is limited, especially with regards to reasoning with design  ...  We would like to thank the designers who participated in the sessions that provided the input data to this project and the workshop organisers, Andre´van der Hoek, Marian Petre, and Alex Baker for granting  ...
