Framework for software architecture visualization assessment.

Gallagher, K. and Hatch, A. and Munro, M. (2005) 'Framework for software architecture visualization assessment.', Third IEEE Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis : VISSOFT 2005 Budapest, Hungary, 25 Sep 2005.


In order to assess software architecture visualisation strategies, we qualitatively characterize then construct an assessment framework with 7 key areas and 31 features. The framework is used for evaluation and comparison of various strategies from multiple stakeholder perspectives. Six existing software architecture visualisation tools and a seventh research tool were evaluated. All tools exhibited shortcomings when evaluated in the framework.
