Towards Independent Software Architecture Review


Many software architecture evaluation methods, proposed by the research community, have a common problem of engaging the same architects to perform architecture design and evaluation. This violates the independence of quality assurance and hence may lead to biased evaluation, thereby resulting in inferior architectural design. In this paper, we analyze current approaches and issues to software architecture quality assurance. We propose seven conditions for architectural design quality assurance and discuss existing challenges towards independent software architecture design review.
