The foundation of every system is the architecture. It has to be designed according to the corresponding system requirements by the system architect who is also responsible for ensuring that it fits to the system requirements even if these change due to new conditions during development process. Our approach defines a model driven process for the architect to validate system architecture against system requirements based on UML. It supports the architect in designing the architecture and in analysing the impacts of requirements changes.
