A system's architecture defines its flexibility-the ease with which changes to the system's structure may be made. Systems may possess an internal structure that is relatively complex to describe-especially after many changes. In addition, some changes may require several iterations before stakeholders converge on a final design choice. There is currently no unified mathematical theory that captures these factors. We developed metrics for flexibility, descriptive complexity, and rework… Expand
