SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE EVALUATION APPROACH

Olfa Lamouchi, Amar Ramdane-Cherif, Nicole Lévy

Abstract

This paper describes our approach for software architecture quality evaluation. The mechanics of this evaluation is based on quality model, metric model and a set of evaluation methods. These models are considered as a hierarchy properties structured set. The final properties need to be measured using metrics. For this purpose a metric measurement-based framework is linked to the defined quality model. In this evaluation approach an indication of overall quality can be determined using a Fuzzy engine.
