  • Abstract

    The GEAR process integrates three approaches to architectural requirements engineering: model-driven requirements engineering, quality attribute scenarios, and global analysis, within an iterative, incremental analysis process. In so doing, it shows where these methods overlap and where they complement each other. It also adds insight into the differences between product requirements and architecture requirements. GEAR incorporates experience from over a dozen diverse industrial software architecture projects.
