How to determine whether the architecture meets expectations

The module architecture evalu­ation (ARCEVAL) – apart from the clari­fi­cation of important basic terms, condi­tions, and goals – partic­u­larly deals with the requirements in architecture evalu­ation. Here the concept of quality as well as associated quality charac­ter­istics and scenarios play a major role. Partic­i­pants also learn how to success­fully prepare and conduct evalu­ation workshops. Reworking and utilization of results with the associated risks, a meaningful documen­tation of results and the subse­quent commu­ni­cation of these results will also be examined.

The evalu­ation of existing systems or their parts is taught to the partic­i­pants by learning to derive scenarios from existing problems, to verify the imple­men­tation of the architecture and to apply appro­priate metrics and tools for architecture evaluation.
