Toward a Recommended Practice for Architectural Description

  title={Toward a Recommended Practice for Architectural Description},
  author={Walter J. Ellis and Rich Hilliard and Thomas F. Saunders and Peter T. Poon and David Rayford and B. Sherlund and Ronald L. Wade},
The Architecture Planning Group (APG) was chartered by IEEE’s Software Engineering Standards Committee to set a direction for incorporating architectural thinking into IEEE standards. In this paper, we present a framework for architectural thinking and use it to review existing architectural practices; summarize the work of the APG and its recommendations; and provide the rationale for those recommendations.
