No doubt software plays an important role in imp rovement of our lives. Great demand of software makes software architecture more co mplex. Flaws in any software have direct impact on diverse fields of life (such as business, science, engineering etc). The main reason of any software failure is due to poor software architecture or quality attributes. This paper focuses on factors that affect the quality of software architectures and highlighted the major reason of the defects through

The proposed architecture is Enhanced-Pattern driven architecture (EPDA). This architecture focuses on the improvement of design phase in any architecture. Th is will also help in resolving lots of problems wh ich arise due to usage of different traditional architectural styles. Engr.
