Abstract

More and more organizations are realizing the importance of software architecture in their systems' success in areas such as avionics systems, network tactical systems, internet information systems, architecture reconstruction, automotive systems, distributed interactive simulation systems, scenario-based architectural analysis, system acquisition, and wargame simulation systems. 

The SEI can provide information and guidance about architecture-related questions and problems. Please contact us.

Below are published case studies of real-world applications of architecture-centric engineering. They include case studies using

  • architecture evaluation, analysis, and design
  • the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM)
  • the Quality Attribute Workshops (QAW)
  • architecture reconstruction
