    Software architectures should be amenable to changes in user requirements and implementation technology. The analysis of the impact of these changes can be based on traceability of architectural design elements. Design elements have dependencies with other software artifacts but also evolve in time. Crosscutting dependencies may have a strong influence on modifiability of software architectures. We present an impact analysis of crosscutting dependencies in architectural design. The analysis is supported by a matrix representation of dependencies.
