It is expected that software architecture remains steady throughout its evolution. In order to design software architecture to have robustness towards evolution, it is important to capture the commonality and differences among potential software that will be developed on the software architecture, and design the software architecture to accommodate the commonality and differences. We have to capture the commonality and differences not only from functional aspect, but also from aspects relate to quality attributes, such as performance and reliability, because requirements on quality attributes also have strong impact on software architecture. In this paper, we propose aspect-oriented analysis method, in which we can capture commonality and differences between software, considering requirements on quality attributes.
