Towards an Architecture Maintainability Maturity Model (AM3)

  title={Towards an Architecture Maintainability Maturity Model (AM3)},
  author={Christoph Rathfelder and Henning Groenda},
The maintainability of software systems is a crucial point in the software lifecycle. However, assessing the quality of the software’s architecture with respect to evolution is a challenging task. The evaluation of the maintainability of a system’s architecture is often made using scenario-based techniques. These techniques require a comprehensive anticipation of future adaptations of the systems. To circumvent this problem, a scenario-independent method is desirable to assess maintainability… CONTINUE READING
