Chapter 25. Architecture Development Summary

In this chapter, we summarize how the iterative nature of building the requirements and architecture models supports the iterative nature of systems development. We also summarize the steps used in the modeling process.

The requirements modeling activity is iterative: As the model proceeds from an abstract to detailed definition of the system, refinement of the higher-level abstractions might identify new or different partitionings of flows, processes, or both. Similarly, the architecture modeling activity is iterative: As the requirements model is allocated to specific architecture modules, the refinement of this allocation might identify new or repartitioned modules that better meet the system’s ...
