The purpose of this working session is to solicit feedback from the software architecture community for the revision of IEEE Std 1471 (now also ISO/IEC 42010), to identify topics ripe for standardization and to get reactions on current proposals under consideration for the revision. This paper briefly outlines some of the revision proposals under consideration and provides some detail about one major area: architecture frameworks. The WICSA Wiki will be used to solicit participation, capture…

Sistema de Gestão de Arquitecturas Empresariais Especificação de Viewpoints
The present dissertation aims to develop "Q-EAMS" software based on an Enterprise Architecture (EAMS) management tool that will allow them to navigate the architectural repository in order to specify the viewpoints that Intended to view the repository using the "AndarPor" algorithm.
Architecture Views Illustrating the Service Automation Aspect of SOA
This chapter is closely related to Chapter 8 as shows how such approaches can be used to develop a service, with particular emphasis on the identification of three views that structure and ease elicitation and documentation of stakeholders’ concerns.
An Approach for Creating and Managing Enterprise Blueprints: A Case for IT Blueprints
This paper presents the approach to handle blueprints of the Enterprise Architecture, based on several years and projects in large organizations, both in the financial and telecommunication industry.
An Exploration of Enterprise Architecture Research
This study finds a considerable degree of co-authorship clustering and a positive impact of the extent of co -authorship on the diffusion of works on enterprise architecture and proposes an agenda for future research based on the findings from the above analyses and their comparison to empirical insights from the literature.
Challenges in Combining SysML and MARTE for Model-Based Design of Embedded Systems
This paper assesses possible strategies for combining the SysML and MARTE profiles in a common modelling framework, and shows that, despite some semantic and syntactical overlapping, the two are highly complementary for specifying embedded systems at different abstraction levels.
Cyclomatic Complexity Metrics for Software Architecture Maintenance Risk Assessment
This research established that there exist various research gaps in literature in the architecture analysis methods and of interest was that of maintainability risk assessment at the architecture level and as a result a method was proposed to address the maintainable risk assessment research gap identified.
Selection of Architectural Concept and Development Technologies for the Implementation of a Web-Based Platform for Psychology Research
A scalable multicomponent platform architecture is formed, implying the separation into a public and private Intranet parts, and it is intended to use the REST API to organize communication between components.
3D architecture viewpoints on service automation
An Architecture and Reference Implementation of an Open Health Information Mediator: Enabling Interoperability in the Rwandan Health Information Exchange
The key requirements and the design of the current architecture using the ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 standard architecture descriptions are described and a partial implementation and preliminary analysis of the architecture is given.
This unit builds on introductory units to analysis and design and provides the professional software engineer with advanced knowledge and skills in high-level architectural design, its theoretical foundations, industrial best practice, and relevant application context.


Architectural knowledge and rationale: issues, trends, challenges
The second workshop on Sharing and Reusing Architectural Knowledge (SHARK) and Architecture rationale and Design intent (ADI) was held jointly with ICSE 2007 in Minneapolis and some topics for future research are suggested.

    Proceedings of ICECCS '96: 2nd IEEE International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (held jointly with 6th CSESAW and 4th IEEE RTAW)
  • 1996
This work presents a framework for architectural thinking and uses it to review existing architectural practices and summarizes the work of the APG and its recommendations and provides the rationale for those recommendations.
The 4+1 View Model of Architecture
The 4+1 View Model organizes a description of a software architecture using five concurrent views, each of which addresses a specific set of concerns. Architects capture their design decisions in
View composition in multiagent architectures
The approach improves changeability by offering explicit support for separating concerns in separate views and composing the overall architecture, and there is an additional cost of documenting relations.
Recommended Practice for Architectural Description of Software-Intensive Systems
  • Computer Science
  • 2000
This recommended practice addresses the activities of the creation, analysis, and sustainment of architectures of software-intensive systems, and the recording of such architectures in terms of
Applied Software Architecture
Applied Software Architecture gives an overview of software architecture basics and a detailed guide to architecture design tasks, focusing on four fundamental views of architecture--conceptual, module, execution, and code.
Aspects in Architectural Description: report on a first workshop at AOSD 2007
The First Workshop on Aspects in Architectural Description was held in Vancouver, British Columbia as a part of Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) 2007 and a summary of the topics addressed, contributions and issues raised, and workshop conclusions are presented.
View composition in multi-agent architectures 1 View composition in multi-agent architectures
It is learned that view relations and composition improve changeability of a multi-agent architecture by offering explicit support for separating concerns in separate views and composing the overall architecture from these separate views; the tradeoff for this improved changeability is the additional cost of documenting relations between architectural views.
