Experiments in Knowledge-Intensive System Architecting: Interactive Architecture Optimization Conference Paper uri icon


  • Large aerospace organizations typically spend significant resources in optimizing system design by means of specialized software (e.g., computer-aided design, simulation). Conversely, architectural decisions are made much faster, with far less resources, and typically, in a much less structured way. This is despite clear indications that architectural decisions fix many design decisions, and have a larger impact on lifecycle cost and performance than design decisions. © 2014 IEEE.
