Abstract:
It is widely recognized that in system development, innovative requirements and innovative architectural solutions need to be co-developed. Yet, no comprehensive method exists to support the co-development of requirements and architecture. This chapter describes the COSMOD-RE method for supporting the co-development of re-quirements and architectural artifacts at four distinct levels of abstraction. An over-view on the method is provided, and the activities for supporting the development of system requirements and the functional system architecture are described.
