The MARE method is an approach to support the planning of the restructuring of the implementation of a system in an architecture restructuring process. The planning is supported by semi-automatically creating a complete mapping of all source elements to target components. MARE employs a clustering algorithm that bases on information about the source system and the target architecture. The approach includes interactions with the user in order to include the users knowledge about the source system and the decomposition criteria of the target architecture as well as to delegate key decisions to the user. An early version of MARE was published at the Workshop on Software Quality and Maintainability (SQM2009) (see Streekmann and Hasselbring (2009)).
