Architecture Risk Reduction Activities (SATURN 2006)

April 2006 Presentation
Rick Kazman

Presentation from the SEI Software Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Workshop, held between April 25-26, 2006.


Software Engineering Institute



This working session will focus on:

  • what architecture risk reduction activities the participants have   used,
  • how much risk they think that these activities reduce (and how they   measure/know this),
  • and the costs of each.

We will draw on participants experience with SEI software architecture technology but not be restricted to these. We are interested in learning of other activities that address risk reduction. For example, some might use requirements validation techniques or cost modeling techniques, or COTS evaluation techniques that could address architectural risks.
