Chapter 8. Creating the Logical Architecture

In this chapter we describe the tasks that produce the logical architecture that realizes the requirements defined in Chapter 7, “Defining the Requirements.” The sidebar “Concept: Logical Architecture versus Physical Architecture” describes the meaning of a logical architecture and how it differs from a physical architecture. Figure 8.1 shows the work products that are inputs to and outputs from the Create Logical Architecture activity, which contains the tasks that we discuss in this chapter.
