Architecture design is often referred to as an art, performed in the conceptual stages of a design process. However, it can be supported by quantitative methods. At the highest level of abstraction a goal oriented approach is applicable. This can be realized by a keyfigure based methodology similar to the management directed Balanced Scorecard. The automotive industry requires that a system architecture is optimised not only for a single product, but for reuse over a range of products, and also for reuse over time with continuous improvements. To achieve these goals the product should be modular. Keyfigures are useful for managing trade-offs but do not easily describe modularity. For this purpose DSM (Design/Dependency structure matrix) and cluster analysis is more useful. A combination of the methods is proposed for design of automotive control system architectures. The proposed method has been applied and evaluated in architectural work at Scania CV.
