Automated Quality-Driven Optimization of Software Architectures (AQOSA)

  • Speaker:   Dr  Michel Chaudron  (Leiden University)
  • Host:   Kung-Kiu Lau
  • 16th February 2011 at 14:15 in Lecture Theatre 1.4, Kilburn Building
The design of system architectures is one of the main challenges in software engineering. It requires software architects to address a large number of non-functional requirements related to performance, safety, cost and other quality attributes. Moreover, these quality attributes often conflict with each other. In this talk, I will present the AQOSA approach which can analyze a given component-based software architecture, propose alternatives to it, and do architecture optimization to improve its non-functional properties in an automatic way.

Key Ingredients of this approach that will be part of the presentation are:

* A component-based approach for system design * Techniques for analyzing extra-functional properties of component-based systems such as performance * Techniques for generating alternative designs * Techniques for multi-objective optimization

The approach that I will present has been developed through a series of EU-research projects in the area of consumer electronics.
