APS-RA: Architecture Documentation & Evaluation
First, this dataset contains the documentation of the APS-RA (Advanced Planning Systems Reference Architecture), which is a reference architecture to assist and simplify the development of Advanced Planning Systems (APS). These are specific Decision Support System that automates the optimization of the different organizational process, aiming to provide a user-friendly interface, while automatically interacting with existing enterprise systems. This documentation is provided as a PDF, following the "Views & Beyond" documentation style. Second, APS-RA has been evaluated using ATAM (Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method); this process is a known method for assessing software architectures. However, this process was made in two stages, with different stakeholders. This decision was made in order to deal with intrinsic characteristics of both the APS domain and of reference architectures.
