May 2007 Presentation
Ian Gorton

Keynote address for the Saturn 2007 workshop, held in Pittsburgh.


Software Engineering Institute



Tools are essential to support software architecture design and evaluation methods. In this talk, I'll describe some novel, prototype tools for architecture knowledge management, collaborative architecture design and decision making, and performance analysis of COTS-based architectures. A brief overview of the aims and major features of each tool will be presented, and their use in industrial projects will be discussed.
