Architecture Planning Group:
August 20, 1995
The Architecture Planning Group will define for the Software
Engineering Standards Committee the statement of direction for
incorporating architecture into the set of IEEE standards for software
Every system or subsystem has an architecture, as defined by IEEE
610.12-1990. Every system with software has a software view of that
architecture. This planning group will define terms, principles and
guidelines for software architecture, not in isolation, but integrated
with the views of other disciplines.
- Define a framework for relating the concept and principles of
software architecture to software and systems engineering.
- Examine selected IEEE software engineering standards for:
a. their conformance to the framework of software architecture that
has been defined in task 1.
b. their applicability and use in Software architecture.
- Produce an Action Plan with recommendations for incorporating
software architecture into IEEE standards for software engineering. (E.g.,
obsolete old standards, modify existing standards, propose new standards).
Provide recommendations for the Software Engineering Standards Committee to
work effectively within the systems communities.
