Summary This book collects state-of-the-art knowledge on how to intertwine software quality requirements with software architecture and how quality attributes are exhibited by the architecture of the system. It explains how to improve system quality with focus on attributes such as usability, maintainability, flexibility, reliability, reusability, agility, interoperability, performance, and more. Topics include: the importance of clear requirements; patterns and tradeoffs that can influence quality, and metrics for quality assessment and overall system analysis; practical experience and evidence to look ahead at the challenges faced by organizations in capturing and realizing quality requirements; explores the basis of future work in this area; includes case studies, experiments, empirical validation, and systematic comparisons with other approaches already in practice. -- Edited summary from book.
