Architecture Evaluation and ATAM, ARID & SAAM


Architecture Trade-Off Analysis Method (ATAM), Architecture Review of Intermediate Design (ARID) and Software Architecture Analysis Method (SAAM) are some of the well known methods for architecture evaluation.

These methods can also be customized based on the context and the need of the stakeholders.

kanban-boardKanban is the visual signalling mechanisms to control work in progress. The aim of kanban is to recognize possible bottlenecks in the process and fix them.
This method allows organizations to start with their current workflow and make evolutionary changes, by visualizing their flow of work, limit work in progress and stop starting and start finishing.
The kanban system manages the entire value chain from the supplier to the end customer, and it is continuous monitoring of the process. It focuses on releasing software early and often, without overburdening development team. Continue reading
