This thesis contributes to the field of architecture restructuring by introducing and evaluating the semi-automated MARE Method, which supports the transformation of the implementation of an existing system so that it conforms to a given target architecture. The second contribution of the thesis is the MARE Clustering Algorithm that creates a complete mapping of source elements to target components and thus automates an important part of the planning of the restructuring of the implementation in the course of an architecture restructuring. The third contribution is the evaluation, which mainly covers the clustering part of MARE. It shows that complete mappings with a high quality and stability can be produced and sketches strategies for the practical realisation of the configuration of the clustering.
