The purpose of the System Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM) is to
Scenarios derived from quality attribute augmented mission threads, system use cases, architectural documents, and SoS architecture challenges (from the MTW) form the basis for evaluation in a System ATAM. The System ATAM is a variant of the ATAM and addresses the following system areas:
There are three phases to a System ATAM:
The System ATAM is one of the methods used in the SoS Architecture Development and Analysis process. It can be used independently of the SoS Architecture Evaluation and the Mission Thread Workshop or as a follow-on.
The System ATAM is ready to use. The SEI is currently looking for organizations that would like to incorporate the System ATAM as one of their routine software development practices. If you would like technical details about the System ATAM or if you would like to schedule one, contact us using the link in the For more information box at the bottom of this page.
