One of the many challenges facing electronic 1 system architects is how to provide a cost estimate related to design decisions over the entire life-cycle and product line of the architecture. Various cost modeling techniques may be used to perform this estimation. However, the estimation is often done in an ad-hoc manner, based on specific design scenarios or business assumptions. This situation may yield an unfair comparison of architectural alternatives due to the limited scope of the… Expand

The Impact of Architecture on Quality of Electronic Control Systems: The Cost of Architectural Complexity
TLDR
In the course of this work a quality model for system architecture is derived from the life-cycle of E/E-systems, which distinguishes the functional requirements, their logical realization and the physical resources of in-vehicle E-E systems. Expand
