complex structure of
software is built on after considering key scenarios, common problems of designs and long term
effect of decisions taken in selecting the architecture .
2.1.2 Architectural Design
This applies to all architectures, most of the time the genre(category) of the software dictates the
architectural approach to be considered, some of the genres are artificial intelligence, commercial
and non-profit, communications, financial, games, government, legal, medical, military, science and
many more. Each genre has its own unique requirements which it follows with emphasis on its key
qualities . The deployment strategy, appropriate technology, quality attributes and crosscutting
concerns contribute to architecture selection .
2.1.3 Architectural Structures and Views
Structures and views are used to discuss representation of software architectures, they are
sometimes the same as a view is the representation of a structure. A view consists of how a set of
elements are represented and the relationship between them, it represents a coherent set…
achieve solution and maximize productivity. The main idea is that the team rallies around the problem or case for the solution.
Such development practice qualifies XP to be an agile method of software development.
Citing Don well (1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2009) Extreme Programming improves a software project in five essential ways; communication, simplicity, feedback, respect, and courage. This can be likening as the software architectural process of an agile software designing.
Software architecture is the blueprint when developing a software system, and it can be regarded as a high-level design of a software system; it breaks the system into subsystems and components, and describes how these subsystems and components interact with each other (McGovern, 2004; Pressman, 2010).
There exist four views from different stakeholders when designing a software architecture; they are 1) a logical view, indicating the core perspectives of the system requirements; 2) a process…
Client Server model in Distributed Computing
Distributed computing is a field of computer science that studies distributed systems. A distributed system is a software system in which components located on networked computers communicate and coordinate their actions by passing messages. The components interact with each other in order to achieve a common goal. Distributed computing is a model in which components of a software system are…
then the trend came for web clients where web browsers acted as clients. They enabled a user to access resources over the internet, thus by providing more accessibility and authorization to it. This scenario has been described in figure 1.3, shown above. But all this was very difficult to integrate as far as business data availability and workflows are concerned. So, there emerged a need for some technology wherein one can easily change the software which can easily handle all the resources and…
Department of Labor, 2015). CollegeGrad.com includes that “all state architectural registration boards require architecture graduates to complete a lengthy paid internship—generally 3 years of experience—before they may sit for the Architect Registration Examination” (Architects: Career, Salary and Education Information,…
This investigation was conducted for the purposes of finding out the software that Jasmax- a largest and longest establish architectural and design company- used for managing their work. By research on the internet, I will indicate in this report the sort of software that this architect company use or suggest the software that they likely to use as well as point out what type of user will utilize that particular software.
2. Company profile
Jasmax is a private enterprise type…
In her book The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand portrays the protagonist, Howard Roark, as an individualistic young architect who chooses to struggle in unimportance rather than compromise his artistic and personal vision. The book follows his fight to practice what the public sees as modern architecture, which he considers to be superior, despite an establishment focused on tradition-worship. In the book Architecture's New Media: Principles, Theories, and Methods of…
3. Uses of Building information Modeling (BIM)
BIM is a 3-D model process used in the engineering, architecture and construction with tools to manage the project effectively in planning, designing, constructing and operational phase. At every stage of project development, BIM plays a vital role, in planning BIM is used for cost estimation; phase planning, site analysis and programming. In the design phase, BIM used for structural analysis, lightning analysis, mechanical analysis, LEED evaluation…
side of your brain and enjoy solving problems and conquering challenges? As an architect you will be able to put your creative ideas down on paper and then turn those drawings into reality. It is a challenging, but immensely rewarding profession and few things can compare to the feeling of seeing your ideas turned into something tangible that can be inhabited by people. However, being an architect also comes with a lot of responsibility and the first step is obtaining your architecture degree.…
