Developing an Architecture Method Library

See More ...

Today, there are millions of professionals worldwide acting as a designer, architect or engineer in the design, realization, and implementation of information systems. At this moment there is no well established and clearly identified body of knowledge that defines their profession in a "standard" way. In this article, we present the idea of developing an architecture method library. Such a library could play a pivotal role to further professionalize the field. The library contains project experiences, reference architectures, literature, proven methods, tools, etc. Access mechanisms allow the professional to use this body of knowledge. By giving it an open nature, it can be filled by professionals from different fields. Feedback mechanisms are possible to improve the contents of the library, for example by giving feedback on the method components in the library.
