Abstract: The development of highly complex products requires the maintenance of a huge set of inter-dependent documents, in various formats, developed concurrently according to agile methods. Unfortunately, no tool or methodology is available today to systematically maintain consistency between all these documents. Therefore, according to observations made in STMicroelectronics, when a document changes, stakeholders must manually propagate the changes to the impacted set of dependent documents. For various reasons, they may not well propagate the change, or even may not propagate it at all. Related documents thereby diverge more and more over time. This is a source of bugs that are difficult to identify and fix; potentially jeopardizing product reliability and quality. This paper proposes a methodology to help stakeholders to systematically maintain consistency between documents, based on the Architecture Description concept introduced by ISO42010. First, a model is defined to describe complet ely correspondences between Architecture Description Elements of documents. This model is designed to be independent of documents formats, selected system development lifecycle and the working methods of the industry. Second, these correspondences are analyzed in case of document modification in order to help stakeholders maintaining corpus consistency. A tool has been prototyped to evaluate the approach. (More)
