Abstract

Domain analysis is the foundation for a reuse-driven software system development process. A domain analysis is the systems engineering of a family of systems in an application domain. The end goal of a domain analysis is to build and maintain a reuse library asset which can be used to develop instances of systems in the domain family. A three-phase approach is recommended for performing the domain analysis: 1) model the domain, 2) architect the domain, and 3) develop software components. All products of the domain analysis activities are reusable in future system developments in the family, and also in the analysis of related domains. Our primary conclusion is that domain analysis, when done right, is a significant undertaking; however, it produces a significant benefit.
