Abstract :

Performing a correct architectural design is essential to satisfy the quality requirements of a software. In this phase, the high-level components that will compose the system, as well as their relationships, are defined. Since the architects must struggle with complex and challenging tasks in this phase, providing them with advanced and helpful tools and methods is suitable. For example, MDD-based approaches are a valuable means to deal with the complexity during the software development process, particularly during the architectural design stage. However, despite the notable benefits of this type of approaches, the architects are often sceptical about adopting new technologies. Hence, before formally adopting new methods or tools, it is suitable to consider the opinion of those using them. In that sense, this paper aims to describe the results of an assessment of an MDA-based approach to support the architectural design. This assessment was carried out applying the Iadov neutrosophic technique. This technique has been extensively applied in a wide variety of domains to analyze the satisfaction level of potential users of different proposals. The results indicate a high satisfaction level of potential users of the assessed approach.
