Abstract [en]

Software architecture design as an engineering field has evolved greatly during the last 15 years, which is evident by the number of methods, styles, patterns, and guidelines available for its practitioners in industry. This paper takes a closer look at the purposes behind this field to reveal the level of discrepancy in pursued purposes between industrial practitioners and published methods for software architecture design. In our research surveys of architecture design methods and of purposes at a number of industrial practitioners resulted in two sets of purposes which were eventually compared and the level of discrepancy identified.

Abstract [sv]

Mjukvarudesign är ett område inom mjukvaruindustrin som utvecklats omfattande under de senaste 15 åren, vilket synliggjorts av de nya metoder, designstilar, designmönster och paradigmer som gjorts tillgängliga för mjukvaruutvecklare idag. Den här uppsatsen gör en djupgranskning av syftena bakom detta arbetsområde för att upptäcka eventuella skillnader mellan de syften som framhålls av befintliga arkitekturmetoder och de syften som åtsträvas av utövare inom mjukvaruindustrin.
