Abstract
In contrast to software architecture models, architec-
tural decisions are often not explicitly documented, and
therefore eventually lost. This contributes to major prob-
lems such as high-cost system evolution, stakeholders mis-
communication, and limited reusability of core system as-
sets. An approach is outlined that systematically and semi-
automatically documents architectural decisions and al-
lows them to be effectively shared by the stakeholders. A
first attempt is presented that partially implements the ap-
proach by binding architectural decisions, models and the
system implementation. The approach is demonstrated with
an example demonstrating its usefulness with regards to
some industrial use cases.
