Abstract

In this paper, we propose a quantitative scenario-based method for dealing with the quality attributes for future software systems before any architecture implementation effort is actually done. The exploration of the possible design variants for a future system is done using so-called user scenarios. The method supports the software architects in developing future systems that meet their specific quality requirements. The method was validated in an industrial case study focusing on the usability aspects.
