Software architecture reviews are effective in identifying potential problems in architectures, however, are expensive, time-consuming, and generally rely on extensive architecture documentation. An architecture review that accommodates projects with very short development cycles, minimal documentation, or frequently changing requirements could be useful if it identifies important architectural issues. We developed a useful, inexpensive architecture review method that uses the architecture patterns in a system to identify important issues in the achievement of quality attributes.
