The authors describe in detail the capture and use of design rationale in software engineering to improve the quality of software. Their book is the first comprehensive and unified treatment of rationale usage in software engineering. It provides a consistent conceptual framework and a unified terminology for comparing, contrasting and combining the myriad approaches to rationale in software engineering. It is both an excellent introductory text and a uniquely valuable reference.Design rationale research started in the 1980s from the recognition that the results of design often do not make sense to those outside the ... In the retrospective rationale community, the concern was primarily how to document large-scale software ... For example, Zhu and Gorton (2007) devised a Unified Modeling Language (UML) profile for adding rationale information to standard UML design diagrams.
