Architecture-driven Requirements Engineering (ARE)

ARE has been started in February 2013 and is headed by Jun.-Prof. Anne Koziolek.

Our research is concerned with evaluating software architectures to provide systematic decision support for requirements engineering activities. This applies the idea of the Twin Peaks model of requirements and architecture to quantitative, model-based software architecture evaluation. The Twin Peaks model has been proposed by Bashar Nuseibeh (2001), who applied the insight of the inevitable intertwining of specification and implementation (Swartout and Balzer 1982) to software architecture.

The current focus of the group is quality requirements, where the results of software architecture optimization is used to provide quantitative feedback about the attainable design space.
