    The concept of software architecture has gained a wide popularity and is generally considered to play a fundamental role in coping with the inherent difficulties of the development of large-scale and complex software systems. This chapter first gives a definition of architecture. Second, a meta-model for architecture design methods is presented. This model is used for classifying and evaluating various architecture design approaches. The chapter concludes with the description of the identified problems.
