A Systematic Qualitative Comparison of Five Approaches to Modularity
2010 (English)In: International Design Conference: Design 2010, 2010, 147-156 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
An approach to modularity is used to mean the method by which a modular architecture is defined. This paper presents a method by which such approaches can be compared, incorporating both academic and experience-based criteria. The proposed method, based on dendrograms, is applied on MFD, Component-based DSM, Heuristics, and two derived approaches. Derived approaches seem to offer improvements, but also introduce new disadvantages which are absent in the methods on which they build.
