Modularity in Design : Formal Modeling and Automated Analysis

  title={Modularity in Design : Formal Modeling and Automated Analysis},
  author={M. J. Knight},
People have long recognized that evolvability, achieved most fundamentally by appropriate modularity in design, can have enormous technical, organizational and economic value. However, achieving appropriate modularity in design, e.g., by refactoring, can incur significant costs: both direct and in tradeoffs against other properties, such as performance and time to market [14]. Reasoning about the evolvability properties and economic implications of design structures is critical to high… CONTINUE READING
