Guided Architecture Trade Space Exploration for Safety-Critical Software Systems

  • Abstract

    In this work, we have created a new tool prototype that automatically explores a system’s trade space: its possible combinations of system software, hardware, and configuration options. This exploration is interactive and user-guided, and it lets system designers uncover subtle relationships between various quality attributes. This work builds on previous SEI technologies for modeling system architecture and enables a new paradigm—design by shopping—of system design.
