Workshop Topics

  • Axioms of Software Architecture:
    1. The software architecture of a system is the fundamental artifact that guides development
    2. The design of the software architecture is based on a set of architecturally significant requirements
    3. Architecture design can be made tractable by considering a small number of design primitives, called tactics
    4. Architecture design can and should be guided by analysis
    5. An architecture and the resulting system are developed by people within an organizational and business context, so economic and organizational concerns shape and constrain architecture

  • Realization of the Axioms as *methods*:
    1. Why methods?
    2. Which methods? QAW, ADD, ATAM, DSA, CBAM, ...

  • What a Manager needs to know and do?

  • What a Software Engineer needs to know and do?
