What about the development of this document.
Purpose Reference Architecture artifacts are part of an organization's reusable asset base. Their purpose is to form a starting point for architectural development. They may range from ready-made architectural patternsarchitectural mechanisms and frameworksto complete systems, with known characteristics, proven in use.
They may be applicable generally, or for a broad class of systems spanning domains, or have a narrower, domain-specific, focus.
The use of tested reference architectures is an effective way to address many non-functional requirements, particularly quality requirements, by selecting existing reference architectures, which are known through usage to satisfy those requirements.
Reference Architectures may exist or be used at different levels of abstraction and from different viewpoints. In the Rational Unified Process RUPwe allow the notion of Reference Architecture to include references to existing, reusable components that is, implementations.
Brief Outline Organization of Assets The organization which owns the Reference Architecture assets will need to decide how the assets are to be classified and organized for easy retrieval by the software architect, by matching selection criteria for the new system.
Although the creation and storage of Reference Architectures is currently outside the scope of the RUP, one suggestion is that architectures be organized around the idea of domainswhere a domain is a subject area that defines knowledge and concepts for some aspect of a system, or for a family of systems.
Here we are allowing use of the term 'domain' at levels below that of the application. Such domains might include closely related groups of end-user systems, commonly used functions across multiple systems, or widely applicable groupings of underlying services. The figure below, taken from [ LMFS96 ], illustrates this principle.
It probably makes sense therefore, to solve real-time scheduling problems once for all these domains, and treat the knowledge and assets so developed as a separate domain, which then has an association to, for example, Electronic Warfare, but not to Personnel Information Systems.
Contents The Reference Architecture has the same form as the Artifact: Software Architecture Document and the associated models, stripped of project specific references, or having project references and characteristics made generic, so that the Reference Architecture may be classified appropriately in the asset base.
Access to the SAD and associated models gives several points of entry for the software architect, who could choose to use just the conceptual or logical parts of the architecture if the organization's reuse policy allows this.
At the other extreme, the software architect may be able to take from the asset base complete working subsystems, and a Deployment Model at the physical level that is, a complete hardware and network blueprint. Other supporting artifacts are needed to make the architectural assets usable. The Use-Case Model describes the behavior of the architecture but the software architect will also need to know its non-functional qualities.
From this the software architect will be able to determine how well the Reference Architecture meets current requirements. The use, and more particularly, the modification of the architecture will need the same guidance as the original development. This is contained in the Design Guidelines.
For example, the software architect will need to know what rules were applied in the formation of the Reference Architecture, and how difficult it will be to modify interfaces. Access to the Design Guidelines associated with the Reference Architecture can help answer these questions.
Optional Reviewing any relevant existing Test Plans may also prove useful. These Test Plans will inform the architect of the test and evaluation strategies previously used to test similar architectures, and as such are likely to provide insight into potential weaknesses in the architecture.
These artifacts inform the architect of likely requests that may be made of the architecture to facilitate testing.
Timing The Reference Architecture is used in inception and early elaboration during architectural synthesis and the selection of a candidate architecture. The creation of Reference Architectures is an organizational issue and currently outside the scope of the RUP.
During project close down, the artifacts created during the project will be examined to see if anything can be harvested and retained in the organization's asset base, but the activities and techniques employed to do this are not elaborated here.Software Architecture Document.
1. Introduction Purpose. This document provides a comprehensive architectural overview of the system, using a number of different architectural views to depict different aspects of the system. It is intended to capture and convey the significant architectural decisions which have been made on the system.

Here is the outline of the proposed template for software design specifications. Please note that many parts of the document may be extracted automatically from other sources and/or may be contained in other, smaller documents.
This document outlines the proposed system design for the new evaluation examination and verification platform referred hereafter as the Veterans Enterprise Management System (VEMS) as designed to accommodate the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA).
If software architecture is about the structure of a system and is the vehicle for satisfying the requirements, then the software architecture document is a written description of this. My simplified view of the content included in a software architecture document is: An outline description of the software architecture, including major.
