Detecting and Quantifying Architectural Debt: Theory and Practice


In this technical briefing, we will introduce the theory, practice, and tool support for detecting and quantifying architectural debt. We will introduce the concept of design rule space (DRSpace)—a new architectural model forming the foundation of architectural debt detection, hotspot patterns— recurring architectural flaws leading to architectural debt, and architectural debt quantification.
