Architecture DesignStarting on a new project is very exciting. You start with a brand new problem and have to define the complete hardware and software architecture for the product. This stage presents its own challenges too. It is a big challenge to convert the system requirements into an architecture that will handle the requirements. In this article we will divide the process of architecture design into simple steps.
Architecture design can be de divided into the steps given below:
- Analyze the requirements
- Define use cases for the system
- Identify processors/modules to implement the use cases
- Select operating system and hardware platform
- Assign requirements to individual processors/modules
- Define sequence diagrams at processor level
Note that architecture design is an iterative process. When you design your architecture you would move through the steps iteratively. For example, after analyzing the requirements and defining the use cases you might find that there are some aspects of the requirements you did not understand. So you would go back to analyzing the requirements.
