Towards a generic quality optimisation framework for component-based system models


Koziolek, Anne; Reussner, Ralf (2011). Towards a generic quality optimisation framework for component-based system models. In: 14th international ACM Sigsoft symposium on Component based software engineering, Boulder, Colorado, USA, 21 June 2011 - 23 June 2011, 103-108.

Abstract

Designing component-based systems (CBS) that exhibit a good trade-off between multiple quality criteria is hard. Even after functional design, many remaining degrees of freedom of different types (e.g.\ component allocation, component selection, server configuration) in the CBS span a large, discontinuous design space. Automated approaches have been proposed to optimise CBS models, but they only consider a limited set of degrees of freedom, e.g.\ they only optimise the selection of components without considering the allocation, or vice versa. We propose a flexible and extensible formulation of the design space for optimising any CBS model for a number of quality properties and an arbitrary number of degrees of freedom. With this design space formulation, a generic quality optimisation framework that is independent of the used CBS metamodel can apply multi-objective metaheuristic optimisation such as evolutionary algorithms.
