In this project model-based analysis is utilized to localize weaknesses of the current architecture and support the planning and development of future service. Therefore the communication dependencies between the services are considered as well as the application systems with their interfaces. Therefore static descriptions of the architecture are extended with information from a monitoring tool about the dynamic behavior of the services (e.g. data volume and usage frequency). For the evaluation of the established architectural model, several analyses will be implemented. Performance analyses highlight parts of the architecture with a high usage. The problem-specific creation of views enables a detailed consideration of them by an architect. Using a impact analysis the effect of changes can be simulated within the model. Additional metrics to evaluate the quality of microservices will be developed. Hot spots and demands for actions can be identified by applying coloring mechanisms and the dynamic creation of architectural parts The project is carried out in cooperation with the BMW AG.
