Innovative Patterns for Finding Enchanced Solutions to your Architecture


N. Sankar Ram, Paul Rodrigues


Vol. 8  No. 7  pp. 314-318


The paper discuss the innovative patterns such as subtraction, multiplication, division, task unification and attribute dependency change for evaluating the software architecture to identify the risk factor, check all the quality attributes have been addressed in the software. Architecture evaluation for a system can be done by using an approach called Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM). The achievement of quality attributes such as maintainability, reusability, extensibility, scalability and Stake Holders Expects (SHE) are not fulfilled in ATAM approach. We have proposed a method called Enhanced Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (EATAM) by combining the innovative patterns and the ATAM for the evaluation of the software architecture would result in better solutions. The innovative patterns are therefore useful not for categorizing new software ideas but also for generating them.
