The Visual Architecting
by Ruth Malan and Dana Bredemeyer, Bredemeyer Consulting, January 2006
Visual Architecting Process™ Overview
The technical core (Requirements, Specification and Validation) of Visual Architecting Process™ is organized around the Architecture Decision Model. Click on areas on the two diagrams below to explore the process and associated Architecture Action Guides™. This part of the site is a work-in-progress, so not all areas are active yet. The Visual Architecting Process has a long history and is documented in our workshops, so it is this way of presenting it (free) on this web site that is "in progress."
