This paper defines a process for the aspect-oriented modeling of quality attributes, especially those with high functional implications. The goal of this process is to produce ”built-in” reusable and parameterizable architectural solutions for each quality attribute. We propose using the AO-ADL Tool Suite to specify and store these solutions.
