Abstract—It is widely accepted that software architectures represent non functional attributes of software systems. Yet we know of no Architectural Description Language that provides automated support for reasoning about such attributes. In this paper we discuss our ongoing research in representing and reasoning about non functional properties of software architectures.

Index Terms—Software architecture, non functional attributes, ACME, Wright, response time, throughput, reliability, security, availability, maintainability.
