Mr. Nervi stresses the benefits of bolstered concrete, which, he says, permits higher flexibility and makes it more uncomplicated to meet his triple call for of economic climate, technical correctness, and aesthetic pride. In predicting the way forward for structure he stresses the need of architectural ideas which are functionally and technically sound. His ultimate feedback crisis his rules concerning the right process examine for structure scholars, education that may produce architects with a "far better technical experience than some time past, a technical experience which leads to a continuing look for financial efficiency."

Sample text

A model can exhibit static structure and defines the universe of discourse. It requires concept mapping from the application domain to a well-formed structure. The analysis classes are transformed to design classes and later to software classes with implementation details of interaction pattern amongst the objects [15]. Dynamic behaviour can be modelled as the life history of one object as it interacts with the rest of the world; the other is FIGURE 5: Measurement Scale 18 Designing Enterprise Architecture Frameworks the communication patterns of a set of connected objects as they interact to implement behaviour or as the view of an object in isolation is a state machine, a view of an object as it responds to events based on its current state, performs actions as part of its response, and transitions to a new state.

Architecture Analysis—it is a process used to determine the aspects, view and viewpoints that makes up basis of architecture segments. • Architecture Models—it represents the system in terms of analysis and design models that conforms to standards and specification that guides the development plan. • Architecture Knowledge Base—it maintains the information base of significant design decisions that directs the enterprise architecture rationale. • Abstraction—it is an approach to classify the system elements based on similarities and differences.

Maintainability—It describes the effort required to locate and fix an error in a program. It the ease with which a program can be corrected if an error is encountered, adapted if its environment changes, or enhanced if the customer desires a change in requirements. • Maturity—It describes the degree to which a software system is mature. A system is said to be mature when it has attained a final, desired state of full development. • Portability—It describes the ease with which the software can be transposed from one environment to another.
