Chapter 23. Creating the System Architecture Model

In the preceding chapter, we saw how the technology-nonspecific model is created. Now we will use the architecture model to map the enhanced requirements model allocations to architecture modules, using the components described in Part IV.

We will use the architecture context diagram to establish the system’s architectural boundary, architecture flow diagrams to identify the modules and the information that flows between them, and architecture interconnect diagrams to define the channels on which the information flows.

23.1 Architecture Context Diagram

The architecture context diagram establishes the architectural boundary between the system and the environment. Figure 23.1 shows the ACD for ...
