The quality of an object-oriented architecture can be described by a set of characteristics, such as modularity, extensibility, flexibility, adaptability, understandability, testability and reusability, which are recognized to facilitate the evolution and the maintenance of software systems. To ensure this architectural quality we need to understand which factors affect those characteristics and to express this dependency both qualitatively and quantitatively. Only then, we will have the perception of the appropriateness of using specific design approaches and the real capability of choosing among distinct design alternatives. The main objective of this workshop is to establish a working dialogue about the adequate use of techniques, formalisms and tools, as well as their combination in order to increase the architectural quality of object oriented software systems, either in their initial development or in their redesign.
