Abstract

This paper analyzes several industrial software architecture evaluation methods from the perspective of their contextual elements. Contextual elements include the time available for the evaluation, the personnel available, the openness of the results, the involvement of stakeholders, and so forth. The goal of this analysis is to inform managers and technical personnel about the possibilities for an architecture evaluation method given their particular context.
